Golden Pathos house plant

The Golden Pathos (Epipremnum aureum) is a flowering evergreen plant that grows in the wild. There, they can reach over 60' in height. Due to the attractiveness of this plant, it is often potted and grown in households where it can reach 6' in height. Ours is approximately 15 years old, and we recently re-potted it in a larger pot. The photo above shows the newly re-potted plant. It hangs out on our screened in porch some of the time. Also known as Devil's Ivy, this plant requires very little care. Some people use the Golden Pathos in aquariums. This plant is toxic to humans and domesticated pets if ingested, so use proper caution there. Our plant is approximately 5' in height.
