Basic Snow Queen Pothos Care

We always recommend Snow Queen Pothos plants to first time plant parents as they are easy to care for, propagate and grow quickly too! Below you will find our Snow Queen Pothos care guide with everything you need to know to help your 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 will retain the right amount of water.

Detailed Snow Queen Pothos Care

Whether you're looking to make sure your Snow Queen Pothos is in it's perfect conditions, or looking to see if one could work for your space. We've got you covered.

Keep them away from direct sunlight

Snow Queen Pothos plants need medium to bright, indirect light to thrive. Keep them away from direct sunshine as this can scorch their leaves. Whilst they can grow in lower light conditions, growth will be slower and the variegation on the leaves will fade.

Let the soil dry out between waterings

Snow Queen Pothos plants are sensitive to overwatering so you want to make sure you leave enough time between waterings for the potting mix to dry out.

Average room temperature is fine

As long as you are comfortable your Snow Queen Pothos will be too! They can deal with some warmer environments but keep them away from hotspots caused by direct light.

Mist your Snow Queen Pothos weekly

Snow Queen Pothos plants like a little bit of a boost to their humidity level so we recommend misting the plant once or twice a week. Make sure you do it in the morning to allow time for the water to evaporate before night otherwise this can cause leaf rot.

Fertililsing is optional

Whilst you might want to feed your Snow Queen Pothos, they are fine without it! We recommend fertilising only a few times during spring and summer.

Propagating your Snow Queen Pothos couldn't be easier

To propagate a Snow Queen Pothos all you need to do is take a stem cutting that includes at least one node and pop it in water. After a few weeks you should start to see roots growing out from the node.

Snow Queen Pothos are toxic

You want to keep any pets and small children away from your Snow Queen Pothos as they are toxic if ingested.

Brown leaves on a Snow Queen Pothos can be caused by watering issues. If the leaves are dry, crispy and brown it is most commonly caused by underwatering or a lack of humidity. If the leaves are soft and also yellow then overwatering will probably be the cause. Check the moisture levels in the soil to confirm and adjust your watering schedule accordingly.

Yellow leaves on a Snow Queen Pothos is most often caused by overwatering. Too much moisture in the soil will cause the roots to rot. Replace the soil if clumpy and waterlogged and cut back on how much/how often you water your Snow Queen Pothos.
