Caring for Cebu Blue Pothos: Your Comprehensive Guide to Growing and Nurturing this Stunning Plant
Native to the Cebu island in the Philippines, the Cebu Blue Pothos (Epipremnum Pinnatum 'Cebu Blue') is a unique variety of pothos that is in high demand due to its amazing impressive foliage. Characterized by thin and silvery green-blue leaves, it's a beginner friendly plant that thrives indoors.
The Cebu Blue Pothos is mostly kept as a hanging or trailing plant, but can become an astonishing mature fenestrated plant if given the right conditions. If you're looking to change it up, you'll want to provide a lot of light and something for it to climb on such as a moss pole.
Find a location that receives medium to bright indirect light for your Cebu Blue. This will allow your plant to grow big, healthy foliage and keep it's shiny greenish-blue tint. Unlike other Pothos such as Golden Pothos, these plants do not do well in lower light situations. If your plant isn't growing, we'd recommend supplementing with a plant grow light.
