Global Green Pothos Care

The Global Green is a beautiful and easy-to-care-for houseplant that is perfect for those who want to add some greenery to their home without having to worry about too much maintenance. In this article, we will discuss the steps to care for your beloved houseplant so that it stays healthy and looks elegantly.

Light

Your Global Green Pothos will do best in bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some direct sunlight, but it is is essential to avoid too much direct sun as this can scorch the leaves. If your pothos plant is not getting enough light, you may notice the leaves start to turn yellow or pale green.

Soil

The pothos plant does best in a well-draining potting mix. You can use a commercial potting mix or make your own by mixing equal parts perlite and peat moss. Be sure to add extra perlite if your potting mix is too dense. Add enough water so that the mix is moist but not soggy.

Watering

Just have your pothos “drink” when the top inch of soil is dry. Water the plant deeply, and then allow the excess water to drain away. Be sure not to leave your pothos sitting in water as this can cause root rot. In general, you should dampen your pothos plant about once a week. During the winter, you may need to water it less often as the plant will go into a semi-dormant state and won’t need as much “drinking”.

Fertilizer

Feed this plant every two weeks during the growing season with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength. During the winter, you can reduce fertilizing to once a month.

Temperature

The ideal temperature to apply for this plant will depend on the time of year. During the summer, it should be kept in a warm room with temperatures between 65 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit. In the winter, it can be moved to a cooler room where the temperature is between 55 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit.

Humidity

As a tropical plant, it prefers humid environments but is also tolerant of average household humidity levels. If you live in a particularly dry climate, you may want to mist your plant occasionally or place it on a pebble tray filled with water to help raise the ambient humidity level around it. 

Repotting

This fast-growing vine will need to be repotted every one to two years. When repotting, choose a pot that is slightly larger than the current pot. Be sure to use a well-draining potting mix and water deeply after repotting. Allow the excess water to drain away before putting the plant back in its location.

With just a little bit of care, your Global Green Pothos will thrive and add some beautiful greenery to your home.

Global Green Pothos Propagation

propagation from a healthy vine

To propagate a global green pothos, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Cut a pothos plant with the right care, and it will grow new roots! Begin by cutting a healthy vine. Sanitize the knife or pruners with diluted alcohol to prevent the disease from entering your plant.
  2. Make a 45° cut behind the back node. The brownish nubs that emerge where leaves meet the stem can serve as nodes for new roots to form and grow; it’s important you have at least 2 nodes completely covered by water when your plant is fully submerged.
  3. Root your cutting in a jar of fresh water and change the water weekly. Keep it anywhere that’s room temperature and provide indirect sunlight, like outside on an east-facing window.
  4. When the pothos cutting has robust roots that are 2-4” long, you can transplant it into a well-drained potting mix just like your other plants.
  5. You can use the method that involves sphagnum moss and perlite or coco coir as media for planting roots, then keep them consistently moist with an occasional misting to help encourage healthy growth.

Toxicity

The pothos plant is a popular indoor plant that is often used in homes and offices. While it is generally considered to be safe, there are a few potential dangers associated with this plant.

One of the biggest concerns with the Global Green is its toxicity. If ingested, the leaves and berries of this plant can cause nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. In some cases, more serious health complications may occur.

It’s important to keep this plant out of reach of children and pets and to wash your hands thoroughly after handling it. If you experience any symptoms after exposure to the this plant, contact your doctor immediately.

Common Problems

Global Green is a popular indoor plant that has been widely used for many years. There are several problems with this plant, the most common being yellow leaves and not growing. 

Yellow Leaves

One reason for the yellow leaves may be due to the light levels the plant is receiving. If the plant is not getting enough light, it will produce less chlorophyll, which will cause the leaves to turn yellow. Another possibility is that the soil is too wet or dry. The soil should be kept moist but not wet. If it’s too wet, the roots will rot, and the plant will wilt if it’s too dry.

Not Growing

The hardy-trailing vine may also not grow because of low humidity levels or incorrect watering practices. To increase humidity levels, place the pot on a tray of pebbles and water and keep it in a location where humidity is high (near a kitchen or bathroom). Be sure to check often to make sure the water doesn’t evaporate. Regarding watering, you should water thoroughly when the top inch of the soil feels dry to the touch.

Care Tips

If you want to keep your Global Green looking its best, follow these simple tips:

  • Keep the potting mix moist but not wet.
  • Fertilize with a balanced fertilizer every other week.
  • Water regularly, but don’t overwater.
  • Allow the plant to dry out between waterings.
  • Make sure the plant gets plenty of bright light—but avoid direct sunlight.
  • Prune as needed to maintain shape and encourage new growth.
