Water the soil thoroughly after the soil is almost completely dry. It is a good indication that it needs water when the leaves start wilting. Water more often in the growing season and reduce the frequency during the winter months. It is best to refrain from watering if you cannot decide if its time to add more. Larger pothos can live without water for longer periods, but younger, less established plants need to be watered on a regular basis until their roots have fully developed.
All pothos love loose, nutrient-rich potting soil. Use a soil medium that can retain moisture but also allows for draining excess water to avoid root rot. Most pre-mixed soils will suffice. Make sure that there is plenty of organic matter, like coco-coir, peat moss, or shredded leaves, and avoid soils that contain moisture retaining crystals. If your soil drains too quickly, we recommend re-potting your Hi Color Marble Queen Pothos into a compost-rich soil mixture with fewer drainage materials.

As with most tropical indoor plants, Hi Color Marble Queen Pothos will benefit from higher humidity levels (over 50%) but will do fine in average household air.
Epipremnum aureum ‘Hi Color Marble Queen’ highly benefits from regular fertilizing. Use a weak solution of a complete liquid fertilizer every two weeks throughout the growing season (diluted to ¼ of the recommended strength). Do not fertilize during the winter months. Sometimes your indoor plants will grow all year long. If this is the case, fertilize them during this time with a ¼-strength diluted liquid fertilizer once a month, or top dress the soil with worm castings or rich compost.
This glorious Hi Color Marble Queen Pothos grows is a rapid grower once established, and given proper care and love! Its leaves can grow up to 2' long and the vines can reach 20+' in length, but this rarely happens indoors.
