Golden Pothos is a great plant for beginners - it's pretty forgiving as far as houseplants go, and so long as they get enough sun and water, they'll grow long trailing stems (and keep on growing and growing!). They make great plants for shelves and hanging baskets.
Water: In warmer months, water thoroughly when soil feels dry to touch. During winter, keep soil slightly moist.
Light: Thrive in bright, indirect light. Can handle lower levels of light, but you will notice loss of variegation on leaves.
Soil: Does best in rich, well draining potting soil.
Humidity: These guys love humidity. Mist often, keep on a pebble tray or near a humidifier for best results.
Fertilizer: Fertilize once a month throughout growing season.
