Last Updated: June 13, 2022

Basic Marble Queen Pothos Care

Getting its name from the marble-like variegation on its leaves, the Marble Queen Pothos is a must-have houseplant for anyone who is after something special. Below you’ll find everything you need to know to help your Marble Queen Pothos plant thrive!



Bright Indirect Light

I love the sunshine but too much direct light will damage my leaves.


Water Moderately

I don’t like my soil to be too dry or too soggy. Little and often is what I’m after.


Medium Humidity

Please make sure the air isn’t too dry, otherwise I won’t be a happy plant.


Potting Soil

I need soil specifically for indoor plants as it retains the right amount of water.

Can adapt to most light levels

Marble Queen Pothos plants can grow in anything from low to medium to bright, indirect light. You want to keep it away from bright direct light however as this can damage the variegation on the leaves and scorch the plant.

Note that though they can adapt to lower light environments, you will notice the variegation on new leaves starting to fade.

Be careful not to overwater

Marble Queen Pothos like to have a little bit of moisture in the soil but are susceptible to root rot if it is too soggy. Make sure the potting mix has time to dry out somewhat between watering to avoid this.

Humidity isn't too much of an issue

Marble Queen Pothos plants are happy in drier environments or humid ones so don’t worry too much about changing the levels to please this plant.

Marble Queen Pothos plants don't like cool temperatures

When caring for a Marble Queen Pothos it’s important they are grown in room temperature or above. Keep them away from drafty doors/windows or air conditioning vents as the constant cool air will damage your plant’s health.

You don't need to feed regularly

In fact, you don’t really need to fertilise your Marble Queen Pothos at all if you don’t want to. We recommend using a weak water-soluble fertiliser once during spring to help with the growth period.

Propagate through stem cuttings

Propagating Marble Queen Pothos really couldn’t be easier and this could explain the abundance of pothos plants in many plant parent’s homes! All you need to do is snip off a piece of the stem that has a node (where the stem and leaf meet). Pop the cutting in fresh water and after a few weeks, you should start to see roots growing from the node.

Unfortunately Marble Queen Pothos plants are toxic

Keep your Marble Queen Pothos away from any pets or small children that might be tempted to nibble on your plants when you aren’t looking as they can cause some stomach irritation if digested.
