How to Care for a Marble Queen Pothos

Use these instructions to care for a Marble Queen Pothos indoor plant. This guide will tell you how to water your Pothos; its light, temperature, and humidity preferences; and any additional care it might need to help it grow.

 
LIGHT REQUIREMENTS
Your Marble Queen Pothos can survive in low light, but grows faster in medium to bright indirect light. The variegation will be more pronounced in higher light. They do not do well in direct sunlight since the sun will burn the foliage.
WATER REQUIREMENTS
Marble Queen Pothos like their soil to be kept on the drier side. Water enough to keep the soil slightly damp. During the spring and summer, water well and then allow the top 50% of the soil to dry out before watering again. In the fall and winter, let the soil become drier before watering.
HUMIDITY PREFERENCE
This plant will do well in low humidity environments, but will thrive with a bit more humidity. Brown leaf tips may indicate the air is too dry.
OPTIMUM TEMPERATURE
Your Marble Queen prefers average to warm temperatures, 65-85 degrees.
PLANT FOOD
The Marble Queen is such an easy indoor plant, and you don’t need to worry about fertilizing this one a lot. Feed it every 6 months with a general purpose indoor plant fertilizer.
ADDITIONAL CARE
Trim out any dead, discolored, damaged, or diseased leaves and stems as they occur. Use clean, sharp scissors to avoid tearing or bruising the stems. Snip stems just above a leaf node. If you wish to keep your plant full and bushy, trim the longer vines every few months.
TOXICITY
Pothos is mildly toxic to pets and humans. Typically, ingestion will cause mouth and stomach irritation and possible vomiting.
