The Manjula Pothos, aka Epipremnum areum Manjula, Jewel Pothos, or Happy Leaf Pothos, is one of the more unique and rare cultivars of Pothos at this time, a true sight to be seen. The large, heart-shaped leaves and their slightly wavy edges are covered in vibrant markings of creams and greens. Although they tend to grow rather slowly, the outcome of stunning foliage will make it worth it.
They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, although early morning or late evening sun is fine. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is best and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.
They will thrive in medium to bright light, but also can tolerate low light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. They can be placed almost anywhere in the room but remember, plants will grow based on how much light they receive.
They like the soil to be relatively dry before the next watering. That usually takes about 2 weeks in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but for them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water (i.e. droopy, floppy, or soft leaves). Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.
They can live in any average home humidity condition and are fairly hardy.
Although this plant can tolerate medium to low light, to maintain those large and beautifully variegated leaves, you will want to keep your plant in lots of bright, indirect light. Feel free to trim your plant regularly as this encourages it to develop more side-shoots and reduces the demand for the plant to develop a larger root system while confined. Their cuttings propagate very easily in water.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
