Growing Pothos, golden pothos, devil’s ivy in a vertical garden

Pothos, especially golden pothos (Epipremnum pinnatum Aureum) is a classic
houseplant the world over for good reason. It is one of the more forgiving indoor
plants, tolerating low-light or bright light, watering or dry spells, rich soils or poor
soils, neutral, alkaline or acid environments. It is hard to get it wrong. As a trailing
vine it is a smart choice for a vertical garden as it can be encouraged to spread and fill
any gaps. Pothos is considered an aggressive grower and care should be taken if
planted outdoors: it grows fast and will need liberal pruning. It is native to Solomon
Islands and other parts of the Pacific. Golden pothos is ranked highly in the list of
plants that remove VOCs from the air. It has attractive bright green leaves with
yellow and gold variegation. Care should be taken with Australian native monstera
(Epipremnum aureum), as it can be toxic to pets.
