Pothos Marble Queen
- Epipremnum aureum or Marble Queen Pothos is Native to French Polynesia, and is now a very common ornamental plant both in the tropical and temperate regions.
- The Marble Queen needs medium to bright indirect sunlight, but will also do well in medium light. Avoid direct sunlight. The lower the light, the less variegation you will see.
- The Marble Queen prefers her soil to be on the dry side. Water when the top several inches of soil has dried out.
- The ideal growing medium for the Marble Queen is a blend of equal parts of houseplant soil, peat moss, and perlite.
- Marble Queen is poisonous to pets.
- Pothos propagation begins with the root nodes on the stem right below the leaf or branch junctures. The first method of propagating pothos is to place the cut ends of your stems in water. Place the jar of pothos cuttings in a place that gets plenty of light, but not direct sunlight. A month after the roots begin to show, you can plant the cuttings in soil and treat them as you would any other houseplant. The second method is to take the pothos cuttings and remove the first leaf above the cut ends. Make sure you cover the first set of root nodes. Set the cuttings in a potting mixture. Keep the soil moist and keep your rooting pothos out of direct sunlight. Roots should develop after one month.
