How to take care of Marble Queen Pothos?
If you have decided to adopt one of these cute little plants for your place, then let us inform you about its caring process:
- Soil: The most essential product that is a must before plantation is soil. Any well-aerated and quick-draining soil is best for the Marble Queen Pothos. If the ground you have is not good at draining the soil, try adding some sand. Adding sand to the soil can help make the soil drain. Liquid fertilizer is recommended. This fertilizer should be used in diluted form and in small amounts and will help in providing nutrients to the plants.
- Light: As we know, light or sunlight is one of the most necessary things for a plant to grow. Pothos grow best in bright, indirect sunlight. It can also very well survive in low light conditions and a dark atmosphere. Too much of this condition is not suitable for them. They need sunlight but in fewer amounts and not directly. Direct sunlight burns the leaves, which is unhealthy for the plant.
- Water: When I mentioned the pothos is a hassle-free plant, I meant it. This is because the watering process is also hassle-free when it comes to pothos. Once in a week or two, you have to water your plant. It is better if you water them once the soil becomes dry completely. Then you need to water them until it becomes muddy. Also, keep in mind that if your leaves turn brown slowly, you need to water them more.
- Temperature: Pothos are native to Southeastern Asia. Therefore, 70-90 degrees Fahrenheit is the best temperature setting for the pothos. During winter, you have to keep it indoors, and it will survive happily.
- Humidity: Humid weather is the best time for the pothos. They love the humid weather and staying moist all the time. If the leaves show brown color in the leaves, it indicates dryness, mostly during winter. Humid temperature helps to prevent such brown leaves from occurring.
- Fertilizer: Any fertilizer will do when it comes to pothos. It is recommended to use organic fertilizer for its better result. Fertilization is required once a month and should be cut off completely during winter. If your pothos plants are growing in water, make sure to use more fertilizers because of the absence of soil nutrients, or else your water pothos will show stunt growth. Make sure to dilute your fertilizer before using it on your plant. It is best used in the growing time of the plants.
- Propagation: These plants are the easiest ones in terms of propagation. Cut a 6-7 inches portion of a healthy stem and then put it in the water until the roots start to grow. Once the roots grow up to 1 inch, place your pothos leaves along with the roots in the pot with soil. You can also grow them in water, but growing them in soil is the best way to grow your pothos. Keep this mind that if you want to transfer the plant from water to soil, you should do it within the growing period itself.
- Pruning: Pruning is a necessity for plants like pothos. They overgrow in all directions. You should execute the pruning process frequently if you want them to be short and bushy. You can also train it to grow in any direction you want. They can grow on any support provided to them.
- Repotting: We have heard the term root bound, right? Well, root-bound occurs when the plant’s root doesn’t have enough space and forms a cluster of root balls, which are inseparable. To prevent this condition, we need to do repotting frequently. You can place your plant from a smaller pot to a bigger pot. If you don’t want to, then you need to trim the roots. That will also do. Repotting timing depends on the size of the pots. If your pot is smaller, you have to report within one year. If you have a big pot, then be free until 2-3 years,
- Growing Method: Pothos can be grown in many ways. You can place them in regular pots and put them in hanging baskets. According to my research, these plants look good when they are hanging. It gives a soothing feeling to your eyes. They can grow on a trellis as well and if this is the case, then remember that they occupy all the space provided to them. A wall full of pothos will look extraordinary when placed somewhere!
