Epipremnum Aureum N’joy, or Pothos N’joy is one of the newer varieties of variegated Pothos. N’joy is just as easy to grow as its Pothos counterparts, the Golden and Marble Queen and is a distinctly beautiful variety with white and green patches on the leaves.
Pothos are one of the most popular ranges of houseplants. This is largely due to their undemanding nature and their versatility. With your N’joy, you can either keep it trimmed back to make a compact desktop plant, let it spill over the edge of a shelf or out of a hanging basket or alternatively it can also be trained up a trellis or a moss pole to create a magnificent feature piece in your home.
N’Joy Pothos Plant Care
As the N’Joy is used to tropical environments, it’s best to keep your plant in temperatures around 15-29 degrees although it can tolerate slightly cooler temps. A slightly humid environment is also beneficial.
The N’Joy will best thrive in bright indirect light – this is to ensure the beautiful variegation is maintained.
It’s best to water your plant when the top few inches of soil have dried out. The roots do not like to be left wet so ensure that your pot and soil both have good drainage. Less water will be required over the cooler months. Regular misting is required, especially in the dry seasons.
Any well-draining mix will be suitable. The soil will need to be able to retain moisture, but not hold water.
During spring and summer, use an all-purpose liquid plant food to promote lush, new growth.
The Pothos family are considered to be toxic if ingested. Keep out of reach of pets and children.
The N’Joy is a tropical plant that requires a high level of humidity in the air. Regular misting is required, especially in the dry season. Placing a humidifier near the plant would help as well with preventing the leaves turning brown. A handy tip would be to check for pests when you water your plant. This should help prevent a large outbreak of bugs if you are checking regularly.
Root Rot – The N’joy can be prone to root rot. Ensure your plant has adequately draining soil and a pot with a drainage hole to ensure it does not become water-logged.
Brown spots: Brown spots on the leaves can be the result of a few things. The first being overwatering. It’s best to let the top few inches of soil dry out before you water again and reduce your watering frequency. Alternatively, this could be a result of too much light. Too much exposure to harsh sun can scorch the leaves and if this is the cause, we recommend you move your N’joy to a partially shaded area.
