Neon Pothos care

    In case of having this plant hanging somewhere, make sure the sun still hits the top of it, or lots of leaves will die.

  • How to water a Neon Pothos?

    Pothos are plants that like moist but not soggy soil, so water you pothos every time the top inch is dry.

    In winter time, because sun doesn't hit that hard and because temperatures are lower, you might reduce your watering.

    If you're using a terracotta pot, you'll have to water your Neon Pothos more often because porous materials absorb humidity.
