Pothos Plants

The Pothos is also called the Epipremnum aureum, which is its scientific name. Almost all the Pothos varieties fall under this classification.

However, a few Scindapsus plants and other genera are likewise called Pothos.

So, it can sometimes be confusing.

Pothos are one of the most popular houseplants because of their beautiful leaves and trailing stems. They’re often found hanging from baskets or climbing up supports.

The plant is originally a native of the French Polynesia. However, due to its popularity, it has been naturalized in many other regions including Southeast Asia, Australia and parts of South Africa.

Pothos thrive in these regions because it likes temperate climates. It is also not frost hardy. As such, the regions where it is now native to all have warm to hot climates all year round.

Pothos are also known by many other names including Golden Pothos, taro vine and Ceylon creeper.
