Golden Pothos thrives in moderate to low light conditions, making it perfect for indoor spaces with limited sunlight. Place your plant near a window where it can receive indirect sunlight, but be cautious of exposing it to too much direct sunlight, as this can scorch its leaves.


One of the key factors in Golden Pothos care is proper watering. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings, then thoroughly water the plant until water drains from the bottom of the pot. Avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot. In winter months, reduce watering frequency to prevent waterlogged soil.

Soil and Potting:

Use a well-draining potting mix that retains moisture without becoming waterlogged. A mix of potting soil and perlite or sand works well for Golden Pothos. Repot your plant every 1-2 years to refresh the soil and provide additional space for root growth.

Temperature and Humidity

Golden Pothos prefers average to warm temperatures ranging from 60-80°F (15-27°C). It can tolerate lower temperatures briefly but should be kept away from cold drafts. Maintain moderate humidity levels by misting the leaves occasionally or placing a tray of water near the plant.

Pruning and Maintenance

Regular pruning helps keep your Golden Pothos looking neat and encourages bushier growth. Trim back any yellowing or dead leaves, as well as any long, leggy stems. You can also propagate new plants from cuttings to expand your collection or share with friends.

By following these care tips, you can ensure your Golden Pothos remains healthy, vibrant, and a beautiful addition to your indoor space. Whether you're a seasoned plant parent or just starting your green journey, the Golden Pothos is sure to delight with its easy-going nature and stunning foliage.
