The Pothos (botanical name: Epipremnum aureum) has a well-deserved reputation as the easiest houseplant to own. It develops long vining stems (that can grow up to 8 feet long!) with leaves that unfurl open and grow larger and more variegated with time. Though the plant grows best in bright light, it can survive even in dark corners of a home or office. It has lush leather-like leaves that come in all sorts of colors and varieties. The Pothos is also a terrific air purifier and it filters our indoor toxins like formaldehyde and benzene from the air.
It’s so hard to mess up with this plant that it’s been nicknamed the “Devil’s Ivy” because it’s just so darn hardy. It is the perfect plant for someone who’s never had plants before or thinks they have a black thumb (we wholeheartedly believe that plants are for everybody and a little basic plant care knowledge goes a long way).
The only serious mistake one can make with the Pothos is overwatering. If the roots are waterlogged they may develop root rot and begin deteriorating. But this is the case with almost all houseplants, and watering less often is easier than always worrying about maintaining wet soil.
