POTHOS in 5" nursery pot


☀️ Pothos prefer bright, indirect light and can even tolerate some direct sunlight but not for long periods. They also grow well in shady corners and other low-light areas. Though they can survive poor light conditions, they will not grow as much without some moderate sunlight.

🌡️Found in tropical environments, Pothos plants prefer warmer temperatures and higher humidity. Temperatures between 65°F and 85°F are ideal, but they can handle slightly higher or lower temperatures for short periods. Humidity around 60% is preferred, but Pothos plants will thrive in anything above 40%.

💧Water Pothos every 1-2 weeks, allowing soil to dry out between waterings. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light. Some signs of overwatering include yellowing leaves and black stems, while under watered plants will wilt and their potting mix will dry out.

💊 It's best to fertilize your Pothos every 4-6 weeks during the growing season. Feed during the spring and summer months with a general purpose houseplant fertilizer that has a NPK (nitrogen-phosphorous-potassium) ratio of approximately 10-10-10. For the amount to use, follow product label instructions. No fertilizer is needed during the winter months when growth naturally slows.

🪴 Do not repot right away. Let the plant stay in its nursery pot for at least a few months to get used to its new home. Most plants go dormant in the winter so It's best to not repot them then because they could go in to shook. It's best to repot every 2-3 years during the growing months of spring and summer. This plant grows well in a standard potting mix. It is beneficial to blend in some sand and perlite to Improve drainage. They can become slightly root-bound before repotting.

🐜 All plants from Passionate Gem are treated monthly with a natural spray consisting of hydrogen peroxide, natural soap and neem oil diluted with water--but that doesn't mean once they go to a new home it can't catch a critter infestation from surrounding plants or soil. (Even flowers can be a carrier of pests!)  Preventative maintenance Is key! Check your plants often, clean leaves by giving the occasional shower or wiping with a clean damp cloth. Use clean pots and fresh quality soil when transplanting. A spray, like mentioned above, is a really great preventative measure as well.

Follow these care tops to ensure your plant is not only surviving but thriving!
