Pothos is one of the easiest house plants for which to care. It is usually used in hanging baskets, but can be trained to climb.
The pothos is a common, tough-as-nails plant with vining stems and shiny, heart-shaped leaves that are irregularly marbled with yellow or white. It looks like a variegated heartleaf philodendron. In bright light, its leaves become quite large.
It is often trained up a wooden stake, but should be pinched frequently to maintain its shape. The pothos tolerates shady conditions, but will lose its attractive variegation if the light is too low. Cuttings root readily.
