Glacier Pothos Care Guide


Glacier Pothos needs bright indirect light to maintain its variegation. This will also prevent issues such as leggy stems or very little growth. However, you’ll want to avoid direct sunlight exposure, as this can scorch the leaves.


Plant in a well-draining but moisture-retentive soil mix. A combination of equal parts potting soil, orchid bark, and perlite would be ideal.


This plant needs moderate watering, but avoid letting it dry out completely. The easiest way to check if the plant needs more water is to test the soil with your finger.
