Light Requirements

Your Golden Pothos will grow best with bright, indirect light. Many people put their Golden Pothos near a window to catch some rays. This plant can tolerate less sunny areas and can live in artificial light.

Water Requirements

Water when the soil becomes dry, then thoroughly drench until the water drains into the saucer. Empty the saucer if the water level is high so as not to drown the roots. The worst thing you can do to your Golden Pothos is to overwater it. If your soil is too dry leaves may wilt slightly.

Humidity Preference

Your Golden Pothos will appreciate you misting its leaves to help to keep the pests (damaging insects) from making themselves at home on the leaves. Golden Pothos can tolerate low humidity levels well but prefers high humidity.

Optimum Temperature

Your Golden Pothos enjoys average room temperatures of 60-85 degrees. Avoid temperatures below 50 degrees, sudden temperature drops, or cold drafts.

Plant Food

For best results, feed your plant every month during the spring and summer with diluted liquid fertilizer. No fertilizer is necessary during the winter when plant growth naturally slows.

Additional Care

Your Golden Pothos requires little additional care and typically does not require pruning except to remove old leaves as they fade.


The Golden Pothos is considered toxic. Ingestion may cause a stomach upset.

The Golden Pothos was featured in the May Strawberry Moon 2020 Lunarly Box.
