Plant Care Tips
Planting InstructionsFor plants that have filled their current containers, select a container one inch wider than the container your plant is currently growing in. Plants that haven't filled out the soil in their current pots don't need a larger container, but can be repotted into a container of the same size or slipped into a cache pot to hide the plastic nursery container. Select a potting soil suitable for indoor plants, one that is light and drains freely. If the soil is dry, add enough water and mix it in to make the soil just damp. Add enough soil to the new container so that the top of the root ball will sit a bit below the rim of the container, 1/4-inch for smaller plants up to an inch for very large plants. This will help prevent spills when you water. Remove your plant from its old container and gently tease the roots from the surface of the root ball. Place the plant in the new container, adding or removing soil to bring the top of the root ball to the desired level. Add soil around the root ball, firming it in lightly. Water in to settle the soil, adding more if needed. Water your newly repotted plant lightly for the next several weeks while the roots are growing into the new soil. Indoor plants can be especially prone to rot from overwatering at this point.
General Care DescriptionA Marble Queen Pothos can survive in low light but looks better and grows faster in medium tobright indirect light. If the light is too low, the white swirls on the leaves revert to green on the new growth. Feed a Marble Queen Pothos every other month with a houseplant food high in nitrogen at 1/2 the recommended strength.
Effort of Care
Use a well-aerated quick-draining potting soil for your Marble Queen Pothos. If the soil is heavy and doesn't drain well, add a little sand to the mix.
Temperatures between 65-85 degrees are best for a Marble Queen. The leaves may be damaged if the temperature goes below 55 degrees.
A Marble Queen Pothos can survive in low light but looks better and grows faster in medium to bright indirect light. If the light is too low, the white swirls on the leaves revert to green on the new growth.
Water well and then allow the top 50% of the soil to dry out before watering again. Over-watering is the main reason a pothos plant dies. Black spots on the leaves combined with sudden wilting indicate overwatering. Wilting leaves with dry, brown edges indicate the plant was kept dry too long.
Disease and Pests
Bacterial Leaf Spot causes spots with yellow halos; keep the leaves dry to help prevent it. Root Rot, and Stem Rot, which cause stems and roots have a mushy, black rot, are fungal diseases that need to be treated with a commercial Fungicide. All Pothos Plants are relatively pest free. thrips and Mealy Bugs may sometimes be a problem and can be treated with the green solution.
