How to Take Care of and Grow Jade Pothos

By: Linda Pilliphs

The Jade Pothos is a very colorful type of the traditional pothos plant. Its bright mint green and yellow-green leaves make any room look better.

Just make sure you take good care of it so that it doesn't have problems like leaves turning different colors or becoming less interesting.

Just make sure that your Jade Pothos gets good light that doesn't hit the leaves directly. Too much direct sunlight can hurt them.

To avoid root rot from too much water, let the top inch or two of soil dry out completely before you water again.

To keep the soil from getting too wet, add some perlite, orchid bark, or coco coir to make sure it drains well.

Try to keep the humidity between 40 and 60% for the best look of your plant. This can be done with the help of a pebble tray or a humidifier.

If the leaves' tips or edges have turned brown, it could mean that the humidity is too low.

In the spring and summer, feed your plant a balanced liquid fertilizer every six to eight weeks to give it a boost. Don't forget to water it down to half strength.

Cut off any leaves that look like they've lost their color. If you have a vine plant, you could train it up a trellis or moss pole to give it some support.

People really like jade pothos plants because they have pretty leaves and don't need much care.

Keep this beautiful plant out of cold winds, away from pets that might eat its poisonous leaves, and very dry if you want to keep it in your home for a long time.

You shouldn't get a lot of it. Or not much light.
