Can Pothos Live Outside / Plant Survive Outdoors? (Answered)



Golden Pothos, or Devil’s Ivy, (Epipremnum aureum) is one of the most popular and easy-to-grow houseplants.

Indoors, it will tumble over the sides of a hanging basket, climb up a moss pole or trellis, and grow long stems punctuated by green, heart-shaped leaves flecked with yellow.

6 Optimal Conditions for Pothos Living Outside


Pothos grows best in temperatures of 65 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit. It will die in temperatures below 50 degrees, become stressed, and cook in temperatures above 90 degrees.



Just like in tropical rainforests, Pothos plants thrive with humidity in the 50% to 70% range. They are tolerant of lower humidity, but the highly variegated cultivars, such as N’ Joy, Pearls and Jade, Marble Queen, and Harlequin, need higher humidity levels than their less variegated varieties.



In its native rainforest habitat, Pothos grows on the ground and climbs up a tree if it encounters one as it trails along. The light that it gets through the trees is filtered, dappled sun or bright shade – never direct sunlight.
