Epipremnum aureum - Marble Queen
*Flower and Plant delivery is available only for Auckland*
The Marble Queen will thrive in warmer temperatures but is also very tolerant of cooler conditions.
It’s best to keep on the dry side and allow around 50% of the mix to dry out before watering thoroughly. Waterless in the cooler months to avoid stem/root rot.
Bright indirect light is best for your Marble Queen; this will ensure your plant keeps its beautiful cream and green variegation. Variegated plants can sometimes revert to all-green if they aren’t getting enough light. In addition, too much sun will burn the leaves so be sure to keep them out of the path of harsh, direct light.
While the Marble Queen is a steady grower, fertiliser in the spring and summer will help boost your plant’s growth.
Any well-draining, nutrient-rich mix is ideal. If your potting mix isn’t well-aerated, you can add things like pumice and orchid bark to assist in drainage.
Pothos are very easy-care plants. They require little maintenance and minimal attention – these are definitely ideal for the houseplant beginner
The Epipremnum Marble Queen is toxic and should not be consumed by animals or humans.
Pests: While Pothos aren’t known for their pest problems, you still may find scale and mealybug making a home out of your plant. You can treat these creepy critters with cotton buds and rubbing alcohol.
Stem Rot: If temperatures are too cold in winter, or the plant is overwatered in cooler months the stems may rot. Move to a warmer position and waterless.
Leggy Stems/Small Leaves: Leggy stems and small leaves with large spaces between leaves is a sign that the plant isn’t getting enough light. Shift it to a position with brighter indirect sunlight levels.
