Jade Pothos is a cultivar of the Epipremnum aureum or Devil’s Ivy. It’s one of the oldest and most common pothos varieties.
This cultivar has solid green leaves with a leathery, slightly waxy texture. While it may not be as showy as other varieties, but the dark green foliage allows it to tolerate low light conditions.
Jade Pothos doesn’t require much in terms of light, temperature, or humidity, and it rarely encounters any serious problems. However, it will need a well-draining soil mix and adequate watering to stay healthy.
The Jade Pothos is your best choice if you need a trailing plant for a dark room or a home with northern exposure. Its dark green leaves have greater photosynthetic capacity, which allows the plant to produce chlorophyll even in low light.
Water your plant when the top 2 inches (5 cm) of the soil feel dry to the touch. Use your finger to test if the soil is dry enough. Then water the soil thoroughly and evenly until the water starts dripping through the drainage holes.
Jade Pothos needs a well-draining potting mix to stay healthy. The ideal soil should facilitate drainage but should also retain some moisture. You can make your own potting soil.
