Pothos: Pears and Jade
This stunning variety of marble queen pothos has delicate white and green leaves.
Pearls and jade pothos require several hours of bright, indirect light every day in order to support their variegated foliage. Avoid placing these plants in direct sunlight as their papery-thin leaves are sensitive to leaf burn. Directly in front of a north- or east-facing window, or a couple of feet back from a west- or south-facing window are all ideal locations for these pothos.
These plants do best when planted in soil that is rich, airy, and well-draining. They enjoy moist conditions but are sensitive to root rot if they are exposed to soggy soil. A mixture of equal parts potting soil, perlite, and orchid bark is an ideal mix for pearls and jade pothos.
Like most pothos plants, pearls and jade pothos enjoy regular watering but can withstand some drought if needed. Ideally, they should be watered once the top 1 to 2 inches of soil has dried out. The exact frequency of watering will change slightly depending on the time of year. For example, during the spring and summer when daylight hours are plentiful and temperatures are warmer, you may need to water your pearls and jade pothos once a week, while in the fall and winter, you may only need to water it once every two weeks. Testing the moisture in your plant's soil, either with your finger or a moisture meter, before watering will help you to determine whether it is ready for a drink.
Temperature and Humidity
Pearls and jade pothos are tropical plants that do best in warm, slightly humid conditions. For the most part, standard household temperature and humidity levels are fine for these plants, although if your home is on the dry side, you may want to provide your plant with some extra humidity to help it thrive. Ensure that your pearls and jade pothos is not exposed to temperatures below 50 degrees Fahrenheit (10 degrees Celsius). While these plants are most common as houseplants, you can grow pearls and jade pothos outdoors year-round in USDA zones 9 through 12 if you wish.
