Baltic Blue Pothos Growing Instructions

Light
Baltic Blue Pothos can thrive in many light conditions. Ideally it grows best in medium- and high-light spots. (This kind of light creates a medium to strong shadow throughout much of the day). Too bright of light will turn the leaves greener than blue. Our Plant Hunter suggests growing it within 3 to 4 feet of an unobstructed east- or west-facing window where it will get at least 60 footcandles of light. 

Water
Baltic Blue pothos, like other pothos varieties, prefers to dry out a bit (but not completely) between waterings. Never leave the potting mix should wet or saturated for an extended time. Overwatering causes stress in pothos, which results in the foliage going yellow prematurely. Check the soil moisture before you water.

Humidity
Baltic Blue pothos tolerates the average humidity levels found in most homes or offices. For optimal growth and performance, it's helpful to boost the amount of moisture in the air in particularly arid conditions. 

Fertilizing
Like other houseplants, Baltic Blue pothos benefits from twice yearly feeding, generally, every 6 months. Use a fertilizer formulated for houseplants or container plants. Follow the directions on the product packaging. You can fertilize it more often if you wish for your plant to grow faster. Never use more fertilizer (in terms of quantity or frequency) than the instructions on the product’s packaging recommend.

Pruning
Young Baltic Blue pothos from our farm have been grown in a mounded form to reduce the amount of damage to the plant in shipping. As it matures, this pothos variety begins to vine and can be displayed as a hanging plant or trained to grow up a peat post. If you like to keep your Baltic Blue pothos compact, simply pinch back new growth; this encourages the plant to branch out, becoming more full. 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.
