Pothos Marble Queen
The Marble Queen Pothos is a popular plant in the hardy pothos family. All members of this group have glossy, heart-shaped, leathery leaves but in different colors.
A sound drainage system is a must-have. If the drainage isn‚Äôt good, Pothos will have a poor growth rate and health.
If you are unsure of what soil mix is best for your Pearls & Jade, you can try out the following mix.
Two portions of Sphagnum moss,
Two portions of pumice,
Four portions of coco coir,
Four portions of perlite,
Six portions of orchid bark (or pebbles).
There‚Äôs one thing you should remember. Please don‚Äôt use any regular soil as it may contain pathogens or pests. Hence, choose any high-grade potting mix.
You should ensure that while planting the plant, there are no living organisms present in the ground; otherwise, they will absorb all the nutrients from the soil.
All pothos species also have identical water requirements.
While there is not much to think about while watering the plant, you have to understand the slight difference between underwatering and overwatering, because both these can kill your pothos plants. Hence, it‚Äôs mandatory to maintain the balance.
To test, insert your finger into the soil. If it feels moist or your finger comes out covered with soil, you can skip watering the plant.
However, if it feels dry or your finger comes out dry, you should add a small quantity of water. Or you can also observe the top layer for dampness or dryness.
