Caring Tips


He’s very undemanding on water. Check him weekly and give him a drink only if the top two inches of soil feel dry.


Equally undemanding when it comes to light. He’ll make do with quite a shady spot, but will grow better in brighter light.


In the wild, neon pothos grows in sup-tropical forests, mainly across Asia and Australia. It spreads easily because it can grow in pretty dark places (hence one of its common nicknames, devil’s ivy). It’s not unusual for it to grow as tall as 200 metres.
Its undemanding attitude to light has made it a very popular houseplant, ideal for beginners.
It will manage in most light conditions (it doesn’t love harsh sun or total darkness). It needs infrequent watering and generally just gets on with things. It will enjoy a feed with liquid fertiliser once per month in spring and summer. It’s so easy that it would take significant effort to kill it. Please don’t make the effort to kill it. He’ll grow as long as you allow. If you want to trim him back, just use a clean pair of scissors. You’ll cause him no harm.
