How to Care for a Neon Pothos Plant

How to Care for a Neon Pothos Plant

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

LIGHT REQUIREMENTS

Neon Pothos is able to adapt to lower light but thrives in bright, indirect light year round. Harsh, direct sunlight will scorch the leaves, while too little light will cause the leaves to become a pale green and smaller in size.  

WATER REQUIREMENTS

Water your Pothos enough to keep the soil moist, but not wet or saturated. It’s best to water when the top inch of the soil is dry. Don’t worry if you forget—it will occasionally tolerate a missed watering! Look out for drooping yellow leaves, they are a symptom of too much water.  

HUMIDITY PREFERENCE

Your bathroom or kitchen would be a great choice for your Neon Pothos because it does best in a slightly more humid environment. Brown leaf tips may indicate the air is too dry.  

OPTIMUM TEMPERATURE

Neon Pothos prefer average to warm temperatures of 65-85 degrees during the day and not below 60 degrees at night.  

PLANT FOOD

Feed monthly in the spring through fall with a general purpose indoor plant fertilizer. Before applying any fertilizer in any form make sure the soil is damp prior to application.  

ADDITIONAL CARE

Feel free to trim your Neon Pothos regularly. This encourages the plant to develop more side shoots and reduces the demand for the plant to develop a larger root system while in a confined container.  

TOXICITY

Pothos is mildly toxic to pets and humans. Typically, ingestion will cause mouth and stomach irritation and possible vomiting.
