The n joy pothos is a variegated pothos, with white borders to the leaves and big green patches. It’s a real beauty. It looks really stunning, almost like it is painted. It has a compact growth pattern. As they are very variegated you want to give them as much indirect sunlight as you can. We run down all you need to know.
Tip: we recommend Etsy for buying plants. Look for the best rated seller you can, and try to buy as close to your home as possible so the plant does not travel too far.
Medium to bright indirect sunlight is a good range.
Tip: they don’t want to get burned by direct sun, but they need good light to encourage variegation so give them good indirect sunlight but no direct.
