Cebu Blue Pothos
What I need for a happy home:
Light: The Cebu blue pothos thrives in bright, indirect light. It can tolerate medium and low light conditions as well. However, I’ve noticed that the less light it gets, the slower it growth gets. Also, its leaves don’t get a big as they normally do.
On the other hand, bright, indirect light allows it to not only grow bigger but also fuller and bushier as well. In this setting they also produce their most vibrant colors.
This is one plant you do not want to keep under direct sunlight. This will cause its leaves to scorch and burn.
As far as directions go in your home, you can grow them in the east, west and south facing windows. It also won't have any issues in the north.
From what I’ve seen, an east facing window is the best spot. Here, you don’t have to protect it from the sun because the morning light isn’t intense. So, you can just leave it there and it will be very happy.
On the other hand, in a south facing location, you need to protect it using curtains or keep it in a corner away from direct sunlight. This is especially true during the mid afternoons. That way it gets filtered or dappled light when the sun is most intense.
In the north, you want to do the opposite. Here, you want to find the brightest spot possible to give it enough light. While a north facing location has lower light, I’ve found that if you put it in a bright enough spot, the plant won’t have any issues.
Watering your cebu blue pothos is very similar to that of the golden pothos which is the most popular kind of pothos. It isn’t a particularly thirsty plant which makes it fairly low maintenance in this department.
However, you do want to keep the soil slightly moist. Avoid letting the soil dry. More importantly don’t let it stay wet or soggy.
The good news is, the plant is fairly resilient in that it can withstand a little lack of water. And, when this happens, it will tell you.
You’ll notice it start to look sluggish. Instead of being bright and looking lively, its stems will droop and its leaves will look dry. The color will also be visibly more dull.
When this happens, water it. Within 1 to 2 days you’ll see it perk back up again. But, it is important to not let this keep happening. While it can recover this way, your plant won’t look its best. And if allowed to happen too often, it will begin to deteriorate.
