Secrets to success
Temperature: Ideally 18-24°C, keep out of draughts. Epipremnum aureum can tolerate short periods of 10°C.
Light: Epipremnum aureum grow best in filtered light and are tolerant to lower light, however this would cause them to lose some variegation.
Watering: During the active growing period water moderately allowing the soil to dry out a little between waterings. Reduce watering in winter.
Air Humidity: They prefer moderate to high humidity, this can be achieved by grouping plants together, misting, using a humidifier and placing your plant on a tray of watered pebbles.
Fertilising: Feed every 2-3 weeks during growing season, dilute fertiliser to half the recommended dosage.
