1. Choose a neutral or slightly acidic soil that is best suited for the Golden Pothos. It must have good air and moisture permeability.
2. Do not fertilize Pothos frequently. During the period of active vegetative growth, in spring and summer, you need to fertilize the plant once every two weeks. It is best to choose a water-soluble fertilizer: mineral or organic. In winter, feeding can be practically eliminated up to once a month or less.
3. Repot your plant during a period between April and May. For young plants, it will be enough to transplant them once a year, but for adults less often - once every three years.
Do not forget about drainage: it is vital for transplantation. Otherwise, the root system of the plant will die very quickly. Without drainage, liquid will stagnate and nutrients will cease to flow, rot will begin to form in a humid environment.
In potos, the roots grow in the upper part of the soil, so a wide, but shallow pot is ideal for transplanting.
4. Prune your Pothos regularly. When pruning and shortening shoots, the growth of new shoots is stimulated, subsequently a denser and lush bush is obtained.
5. Curling leaves indicate the lack of fertilization. Brown spots on the leaves and twisted tips demonstrate low humidity. To moisturize a plant, spray it more often and place the plant in a container with wet expanded clay or pebbles. Rotting stems signals excess moisture in the soil or very low growing temperatures. Only transplanting and removing rotten roots will help. Loss of glossiness of the leaves indicates too much lighting. Remove the flower in partial shade. Concerning pets, the golden pothos often suffers from the scale insects and aphids. To get rid of both, use insecticides and permethrin-containing drugs.
