Global Green Pothos

Epipremnum aureum 'Global Green'

Global Green Pothos Plant Features

Global Green is a delightfully colorful new variety of pothos that features delightful green-on-green variegation -- the mid-green leaves feature darker green edges. You might occasionally also see small slivers or patches of cream or white on this variety. Thanks to all the chlorophyll in the leaves, you might find Global Green is a quick grower compared to more highly variegated varieties like Pearls and Jade® or Manjula. 

Global Green pothos may be a new introduction into North America, but it's just as easy to grow as other pothos varieties. Global Green is happy in various light conditions and isn’t too fussy about watering. It's pruned in an attractive mounding form when it's shipped to stores, making it an ideal plant for side tables, mantles, and bathrooms. As it matures, it becomes trailing or climbing. To encourage its vertical habit, plant it in a hanging basket or train it to grow upwards on a peat post or trellis. Like other pothos, Global Green develops aerial roots which help it climb up, up, and away. In fact, it can easily reach 10 feet long.

It’s so unusual that it has been patented (PP33,530). Costa Farms has been granted exclusive propagation rights in North America by the breeder.

Global Green Pothos Growing Instructions

Light
Global Green pothos is tolerant of a wide range of light conditions. While it tolerates low light, it grows best in medium- and high-light spots. (This kind of light creates a medium to strong shadow throughout much of the day). To keep its variegation strong and distinct, grow it within 3 to 4 feet of an unshaded east- or west-facing window. If it doesn't get enough light, the variegation can fade. But don't fret: Global Green pothos thrives happily under both natural and artificial light. 

Watering
Treat Global Green pothos like other pothos varieties: Allow the potting mix to start to dry between watering again. Be sure the potting mix never stays soppy or saturated for extended periods. If it stays too wet, the roots can suffocate, die, and then rot away. Check the soil moisture levels before you water.

Humidity
Global Green pothos does well with the humidity levels found in most homes or offices. For optimal growth and performance (as well as increasing leaf size), it's helpful to boost the amount of moisture in the air, particularly in arid conditions.

Fertilizing
Like other houseplants, Global Green pothos benefits from twice yearly feeding, generally in spring and summer when there's more light and the days are longer. Use a fertilizer formulated for use on houseplants. Follow the directions on the product packaging. You can fertilize it more often if you wish for your plant to grow faster, but never exceed the recommendations on the product packaging (in terms of quantity or frequency). Excess fertilizer can burn and kill the roots. 

Pruning
Young Global Green pothos from our farm are pruned in a tight mound to reduce physical damage that may affect the plant in shipping or while being shopped at the store. As it matures, Global Green pothos climbs, and can be displayed as a hanging plant or trained to grow up a peat post. If you like to keep yours compact, pinch back new growth as necessary; this encourages the plant to develop side branches, giving it a full, lush look instead of fewer long stems. You can pinch or prune it at any time of the year without worry of hurting the plant.

This variety is grown for ornamental use and is not intended for human or animal consumption. We advise keeping it out of reach from children or pets that may nibble.
