The Pothos is one of the first indoor plants that many newcomers start with, and for good reason. It is easy to maintain and very versatile that you can:

  • Grow in hanging pots and it will cascade down
  • Grow it on a plant totem or a moss stick
  • Grow it horizontally on table tops, mantels or window sills
  • You can grow it in low light conditions, but it will really thrive in brighter interiors. It also does not require a lot of water – you just need to make sure that the potting soil becomes moist and not wet.

The best part is that there are so many unique varieties of Pothos that you can grow your own Potho jungle full of colorful variety and trailing beauty.

Golden Pothos

You can easily find Golden Pothos in your local garden center or nursery, as they are the most common of all Potho plant species. They are easy to spot because they have revealing heart-shaped green leaves splashed with golden hues.

Also known as devil’s ivy, the Golden Pothos is quite resistant and probably the easiest to grow of all the varieties of Pothos that exist.

Queen Of Marble Pothos

Marble Queen Pothos is another common variety of Pothos that has a cheesecake appearance. White and dark green are intertwined like a tapestry or a knitted blanket, creating a beautiful variegation.

It is a very colorful variety and therefore grows more slowly because there is less chlorophyll in each leaf. You may want to bring them closer to a light source or window sill to stimulate their growth.

Neon Pothos

The Neon Pothos is a unique type of Pothos. The heart-shaped leaves are bright lime green in color! The younger, budding leaves have lighter hues, while the older, mature leaves have a deep neon tint.

you want your Neon Pothos to have that striking neon color, then let them grow under a bright light. In low light or low light conditions, the leaves tend to remain dull and dark.

Jessenia Pothos

Jessenia Pothos have bright green heart-shaped foliage with greenish-yellow reflections. Each leaf of Jessenia Pothos will turn out to be different from the others, just like the Marble Queen. Jessenia also tends to grow much slower than uncolored Pothos due to the lack of chlorophyll.

You can easily distinguish between Marble Queen and Jessenia, because the lime green Variation of Jessenia is much darker than the lighter and whiter Variation of Marble Queen.

Manjula Pothos

Manjula Pothos is actually a patented variety of Pothos originally produced by the University of Florida. The main distinguishing feature between Manjula and other types of Pothos is that the heart-shaped leaves of Manjula Pothos have curved edges that refuse to lie flat.

The leaves are also variegated with shades of cream, silver, white and green. As with the other species of Pothos, their Manjula Pothos leaves differ from each other; some have large green spots and others are heavily freckled and painted with the other shades.

In addition, the Manjula leaf variety is not clearly cut, so you can expect green spots on the whiter areas.
