About the Neon Pothos
If you're a beginner plant parent who loves the beauty of indoor greenery without the fuss, then the Neon Pothos is perfect for your next plant purchase.
A cultivar of the beloved Pothos, the Neon Pothos plant's bright green heart-shaped leaves will wow you while its tough-cookie nature will put your plant caring stresses at ease.
There's so much you can do with this plant in your indoor space. From hanging baskets to trellises, the Neon Pothos is ready to make a statement in your home.
The Neon Pothos plant belongs to the Araceae family, which happens to be the same family as some other houseplant favorites like the Philodendron, Monstera, and Peace Lily. Interestingly, the Pothos is the only species in the flowering family that does not produce blooms.
Other popular Pothos varieties you'll find in this family include the ever-popular Golden Pothos, Marble Queen Pothos, and Satin Pothos.
The Neon Pothos originates from the lush landscapes of the Solomon Islands, where it thrives by climbing trees and growing along the tropical forest floor. You'll also find the Neon Pothos in the tropical regions of Southeast Asia and the Polynesian Islands.
From the moment your eye catches the Neon Pothos, you'll see instantly how it got its name.
While the Neon Pothos shares its iconic heart-shaped leaves with other Pothos plants, it sets itself apart with its lime-green coloring. Instead of the traditional white variegation found in other Pothos varieties, the Noen Pothos displays solid lemon-lime leaves that appear almost radiant.
When this Pothos plant is young, its leaves unfurl in the most striking neon green color. Over time, the leaves start to gradually turn into a darker green as the plant matures. As new leaves grow and old ones transform, it creates a stunning ombre effect.
Besides its showy foliage, the vines also enhance the beauty of the plant as they hang down.
Styling a Neon Pothos plant in your home is a creative journey with endless options. These plants are versatile with their growth patterns, trailing, hanging, or climbing, so it won't be hard to make it stand out in your space.
A great design choice is suspending your Neon Pothos in a hanging basket, allowing its vines to gracefully cascade down. The plant's unique coloring complements minimal aesthetics, adding color to bookshelves and tropical vibes to cozy seating areas.
Another styling option is to weave your Neon Pothos around a moss pole or trellis. A trellis works great for creating a Pothos wall that becomes the focal point of any room.
