Meet The Family: Marble Queen Pothos – Low Maintenance Beginner Plant

My Marble Queen Pothos is definitely one of my top 5 favourite plants. Besides being a visually appealing plant, she is also super easy to care for. I bought her at Hanley’s Home And Garden Centre in Cork in February and she has more than doubled her size in the last four months. 

With my “Meet The Family” series of posts I will be introducing you to my plants and tell you a little bit more about the story behind each plant. I will also attempt to share more about my plant care, and how the plant responds to the conditions in our apartment.

A Marble Queen can survive in lower light conditions, but they do need light to grow. I keep mine in our North facing bedroom windowsill where she received indirect light. I want to speed up her growth as much as possible as I really want her to start trailing. I rotate her quite often so she is growing evenly rather than just one sided so it might still be a while before she can be moved to a hanging planter. I have however noticed that the newer leaves are whiter now that we have more bright Summer days. 

She is planted in my houseplant soil mix that consists of store bought houseplant soil mixed with perlite. At the moment I water her once a week and mist every other day, depending on the weather. She hasn’t shown any signs of overwatering or underwatering even when I neglected to water her. She is also one of my only plants that haven’t lost a leaf so fingers crossed! 

I really thought I would have more to say about her, but I just now realised that she has been so consistent and easy going that I don’t really have to do much to keep her happy. I loved her presence so much I bought a Neon Pothos as well! But more on that one later. 

This plant has honestly brought me so much joy that I want to gift one to each and every friend and family member. They are super easy to care for and I can 100% recommend her to a new plant parent. Do you have a Marble Queen or do you have any questions regarding their care? I would love to hear from you. Leave a reply by commenting below!
