On average, a healthy pothos plant can live anywhere from 5 to 10 years or more. Although, a variety of elements, such as the environment it inhabits, its well-being, and upkeep, determine how long a pothos may survive.
The longest-living pothos variety is the Golden Pothos (Epipremnum aureum). This variety of pothos can survive longer than 10 years with proper care. It’s also one of the most common types found in homes due to its vibrant green leaves and ease of growth.
