Manjula Pothos plant care and instructions
Keep the plant in a shady place for a few hours or overnight to adjust and breathe. Water it a bit if the soil seems dry (Don’t mist during winter) You can either keep it in its nursery pot if you want or plant in your planter keeping the following points in mind. Water your Pothos regularly during the growing seasons and a lot less in Winter. It won’t mind being under-watered, but overwatering needs to be avoided otherwise you risk rot setting in. The soil should never be soggy or wet. Well draining potting mix with compost, leaf mold, coco peat and a little bit of perlite if available to increase the aeration. Average light would be best for your Pothos plant. Growth will be slow if you choose a very dark spot, this will also create sparse “vines” with leaves quite far apart. They love humidity but misting heavily should be avoided during winter evenings. Direct light will hurt the leaves and then will curl as a way of asking for your help. Move the plant a little away from their window and they will spring open again.

Pothos plants are arguably one of the easiest plants to grow and actually thrive on low light and neglect. These plants serve to purify the air of formaldehyde, benzene and carbon monoxide while also helping eliminate odors. Pothos can also help alleviate eye irritation after long days of staring at screens.
