Finding an Epipremnum aureum aka the Cebu blue pothos can be difficult depending on where you live.
I found mine at a local big box store and at first, I had no idea what I was looking at but I wanted it. The way the elongated green/blue leaves were spread along the flowing vines was beautiful.
THE LIGHTING SITUATION
This Cebu blue pothos hangs out in a West facing room and gets a fair amount of indirect light. I don’t tend to rotate this plant, instead, I try to ensure all the vines are facing the sun.
THE WATERING DRILL
This pothos, like many of my other pothos, are pretty forgiving when it comes to watering.
When this plant needs water it is obvious, it looks like it is sad and wilting but after watering, it comes back to life almost immediately. I love it.
I didn’t love the soil that this plant came with so I repotted it with garden soil, perlite, and earthworm casing.
Unfortunately, I planted it in a pot without a drainage hole before learning about proper drainage but it hasn’t been an issue.
I make sure the soil gets completely wet, then I dump the access water after a few minutes. Easy peezy.
This plant hasn’t exhibited any special need for specific humidity. In fact, I’d say this plant is super hardy. I move it around often and have several propagations of this plant in different areas of my home. They are all thriving.
OTHER CARE TIPS
When watering, remove dead leaves and inspect the soil. I haven’t had any pest issues but in general, I tend to notice pest problems the most when I’m watering or wiping leaves. So, pay close attention to your plant at each watering.
If you want to try your hand at propagation, this plant is a great option to try. All you have to do is clip a piece with a node and place it in water or moist soil. I have placed several cuttings in jars and water and have had great success.
I like this plant for its unique color, the long vining jungle vibes, and the ease of care. Another plant that has easy care is the Hoya carnosa compacta aka the hindu rope.
