Pothos Herb Plant – Hall Ivy

Indoor Plant – Pothos

Pothos herb plant Pothos is a perennial plant from the Araceae family with climbing and creeping properties. Its scientific name is Epipremnum aureum. Its homeland is the island of Moorea, near Haiti, from the French Polynesian island community in the Pacific Ocean. It is fully compatible with interior spaces. Hall ivy (pothos) is a plant that can survive even in low light. Visible changes occur in leaf development by getting plenty of light. Since pothos cannot reach sufficient light indoors, it develops with smaller leaves. Pothos, wrapped around the walls in your home, will give the appearance of a forest.

Features

The leaves of the hall ivy are in cream and white colors on green and create different patterns. Although it is called Ivy, it is not huggable. It produces one or two roots with each leaf. These do not grow long unless they touch the soil. The plant climbs trees using its roots as a hand and foot and can grow up to 20 meters. In places with strong light and light sun, there is more lush growth and side branches develop. In the face of excessive sun and hot and humid weather, the leaves of hall ivy can grow up to 50 cm. Pothos will have small leaves indoors with little light.

It can withstand temperatures of -1C degrees in places where there is no direct wind in winter.

Cultivation

It is very easy to maintain. Pothos, which can be grown in every corner of the house , is resistant to being dehydrated for a long time . It lives comfortably even in environments where there is little light. If you can get sunlight in the morning and evening, it will constantly produce new leaves and will proceed on a very long line and wrap the whole house.

In the 70’s, covering the living room walls with Pothos plant was a popular hobby and was adopted. The empty walls of the houses were wrapped like ivy with this plant instead of painting, giving the environment an exotic atmosphere.
