Epipremnum aureum (family Araceae), commonly referred to as pothos or golden pothos, contains some of the most popular and durable interior tropical ornamental foliage plants. The genus Epipremnum and its 10 known species are tree-climbing vines native to the Solomon Islands. In tropical settings, pothos can grow to be large in size, climbing trees 50 feet tall and producing lobed leaves up to 3 feet in length. Plants used for interiorscape purposes such as pedestal plants, totems, hanging baskets, groundcovers, dish gardens, and small desk plants usually have heart-shaped leaves that rarely exceed 6 inches in length. Common commercial cultivars include the standard golden pothos (green leaves with varying degrees of irregular yellowish variegation), marble queen (white variegation), jade (uniform dark green leaves with no variegation), and neon, which displays uniform chartreuse-colored leaves (Chen et al., 2002).
