Epipremnum aureum is the scientific name of this plant. The species is a popular houseplant in temperate regions. The plant has multiple common names including golden pothos, Ceylon creeper, hunter’s robe, ivy arum, money plant, silver vine, Solomon Islands ivy and taro vine. It is also called devil’s vine or devil’s ivy because it is almost impossible to kill, and it stays green even when kept in the dark.
Originally, it was endemic to the island of Mo’orea from the Society Islands. However, it is now wild in many tropical countries.
Money plant is an evergreen vine growing to 400 m (1,312 ft) tall, with stems up to 4 cm (2 in) in diameter, climbing by means of aerial roots which adhere to surfaces. The leaves are alternate, heart-shaped, entire on juvenile plants, but irregularly pinnatifid on mature plants, up to 100 cm (39 in) long and 45 cm (18 in) broad; juvenile leaves are much smaller, typically under 20 cm (8 in) long. This plant produces trailing stems when it climbs up trees and these take root when they reach the ground and grow along it. The leaves on these trailing stems grow up to 10 cm (4 in) long and are the ones normally seen on this plant when it is cultivated as a potted plant.
It is a popular houseplant with numerous cultivars selected for leaves with white, yellow, or light green variegation. As an indoor plant it can reach more than 2 m in height if it is given the adequate support (a tutor to climb), but hardly develops adult-sized leaves. The best results are achieved by providing indirect light, long periods of direct sunlight burn the leaves.
Generally, the plant will only need watering when the soil feels dry to the touch. A liquid fertilizer can be added. Never add fertilizers just after trimming. Always add fertilizers in shade or in evening. Never add them in sunlight, as it can burn leaves. However, it is a very robust plant that supports bad growing conditions. The plant grows rapidly in hydroponic culture. The plant is also efficient at removing indoor pollutants such as formaldehyde, trichloroethene, toluene, xylene and benzene.
