A+ Color Jessenia Pothos Plant
Jessenia Pothos is our favorite color changing plant here at the nursery. New leaves begin lemon in color with a splattering of lime and darken to a stunning green on green mottling. Relatively short node spacing makes it a great choice for indoor growing in hanging baskets or on your sunny windowsill. Please note that leaves will vary on the degree of variegation and some side shoots may have no variegation at all. Simple Trick: to cure this issue and maintain a well variegated plant simply trim the unvariegated vines just after the last variegated leaf and the new shoots should be variegated. Shopping Tip: Don’t buy cuttings, the new shoots are usually not going be variegated. Don’t buy Jessenia plants unless they are extremely variegated like the ones offered here.
Pothos are the fastest and easiest way to tropicalize your plant collection. These plants grow great indoors in hanging baskets or on totems or trellised locations. Typically grown as a houseplant, due to its ability to adapt to different environments. Pothos are grown as a long trailing vine with heart shape leaves. Under the right outdoor conditions, a few of these mini monsters will grow exponentially when allowed to attach to a large totem or tree and climb.This plant has been grown to maturity and is verified.
Why Verify? Juvenile forms of many aroid species look the same and proper identification at a young age is almost impossible. Unless you've actually grown and curated these plants to their full potential its easy to mix many species up. Additionally many plants originating from South America, Europe etc. are all to often given the same name even though at maturity they differ. With our new verify program you can see the mature form prior to your purchase.
How We Verify? This project began years ago, we now have an impressive 600+ varieties growing on large poles to verify their size, node spacing, leaf color, stem diameter, rate of growth etc.

Plants growing here are grown in a natural, humid, rainforest-like environment with little to no pesticides. Though it seldom occurs, when you receive your plant, leaves may drop, have spotting, folds, or even a bite mark or two in addition leaf browning may occur especially on plants with significant white coloration, this is only natural. Remember with plants you're in it for the long haul, to enjoy their natural beauty and possibly share a cutting or two with friends and family.
Here at the nursery, plants are grown under 40-80% shade cloth. If you're growing outdoors and plant directly in full sun you may experience leaf burn. It is best to acclimate this plant to its environment by keeping it outside and slowly moving it into a sunny area over a week or so to avoid stress. Please refer to the above guidelines.
We can not guarantee any future variegation patterns, coloration, survival or growth rate of any plant though all of the mother plants we propagate from have been successfully growing here for 20 plus years, some plants may still sport. Rest assured all variegation is natural, we do not agree with temporary Chemically Induced Variegation, (NO C.I.V.)
