Had to share this. I started work in a plant nursery this year and I'm like the resident builder/ machine operator. Anyways, I was looking at a building that they wanted knocked down and rebuilt and came across this hidden away in the back corner- a whole heap of pothos.
Hmmm:smug:

I've wanted to try pothos in a few enclosures and see how it fairs but never see it for sale anywhere.
I asked the boss and he said I could take as many as I want, so I grabbed three lush, bushy pots -2 green and 1 variegated.
Awesome, I love free stuff and its even better when it's invert related free stuff;)

Nice score!
I love pothos. (Not for inverts per se, just as a plant) Super easy to grow, hardy, and the cuttings will root in water within two weeks. Used to have one in my old office but I could never bear to throw the cuttings away when I pruned it.....had nearly a dozen of them when I finally transferred. Hopefully whoever inherited my office took good care of them all.

That's awesome!

I have a variety of pothos spread through almost every room of my house. :) It is such an easy plant to care for, and I love their trailing leaves.

This variegated pothos is one of my favorites out of the ones I own :) So pretty!

Oh that is really nice @Leila, the one I got is mostly green with odd splashes of colour. Yours is much more pretty ;)
I just find random plants when browsing in stores, and I buy them. I am not a Plantae aficionado, but I love the calmness they lend to a room, thus I continue to include them in all of my spaces. :) Pothos are my go-to. They are so forgiving and do well with my once a week watering.

I think I have this same variant. I also randomly acquired it.
Do the leaves shimmer a bit in the light?

Ya know, I'm not quite sure. I keep both of my variegated pothos (as shown in that photo) in an upstairs bedroom that gets eastern (morning) light. But I often forget to open the blinds, as this particular plant does well without direct sun anyway (in my experience. I'm not a Plantae expert.)

So I have never noticed a shimmer on the leaves due to the above circumstances. ❤

I just obtained one of these a few weeks ago (I believe this variety is Scindapsus pictus/"satin pothos"), split it up, and planted it in a few new vivs. It's already growing like crazy and looks great!

You Australians with your stupidly beautiful "I can grow Pothos outside because it never gets cold here for any reason" weather.

That's a super cool find. I'm shocked you've never seen them for sale--they're everywhere here. My mom has two growing, and my math teacher used to have one that was eating his desk. I also worked at a research station of sorts where they basically let a pothos grow wild indoors--it was a 20'+ tall vine with huge leaves that was climbing an indoor painted wall. Crazy stuff. Keep us updated

@Leila @BepopCola those look the same to me, and I've never seen that particular variety in person but I think it's the nicest I've seen. Real looker lol.
