Neon Pothos Overview

Epipremnum aureum 'Neon' has striking, bright, yellow-green coloured, heart-shaped leaves. It is an evergreen, climbing vine species that is popular as a houseplant in cooler climates. Its flowers are cream-yellow-green spikes enclosed by spathes, but these are rarely produced in cultivation. Epipremnum aureum 'Neon' is a cultivar bred from the common E. aureum and likes slightly more light compared to the species it is bred from. It likes a bright position and needs moist, well-draining soil.
