Devil’s ivy, Golden Pothos has so many names because it’s one of the most popular houseplants in the world. It’s versatile and grows naturally in tropical forests all around the world. It grows up the trunks of large trees, happily living in quite deep shade. That’s how it gets its name, devil’s ivy, because it’s a friend of the darkness. As an indoor plant, its needs are simple. It manages in almost any light conditions, needs infrequent watering and generally just gets on with things.
The trailing vine of Epipremnum Aureum will impress you with its ability to drape beautifully over a shelf or hanging basket and liven up any room.

Epipremnum Aureum is an evergreen climber. Pothos even made the top 10 in the NASA Clean Air Study conducted into air purifying houseplants, as it removes the harmful substances present in virtually all households, offices and schools.
The Golden Pothos is able to neutralise these harmful gases by absorbing them and breaking them down. The air humidity is improved by their regulating evaporation process. As they effectively convert CO² into oxygen, the air becomes healthier.
