Global Green Pothos is a less well-known Pothos cultivar. Because of its vivid green colour and lovely leaf texture, this uncommon yet economical houseplant has gained appeal in recent years. Find the Global Green Pothos Care Guide in this page to ensure that you grow the plant effectively. 

Global Green Pothos is a newcomer to the world of tropical houseplants. Its lime and emerald-hued glossy green leaves have a distinctive design. Global green, like other Pothos, requires bright yet indirect light to preserve its magnificent marbled appearance. It looks best in hanging baskets or pots that are suspended from something. Between watering schedules and occasional feeding, it like its soil to dry out. 

Growing Process 

1. Selecting the Right Container 

It's a good idea to start the plant in an 8-10 inch container. It's ideal to grow them in hanging baskets or in a pot on a stand to show off their lovely tendrils. 

2. Propagation 

Plants may be grown in both soil and water 

In Water 

  • Choose a healthy stem and cut it 4-6 inches long at a 45-degree angle above the node. 

  • Put it in a glass jar filled with water and keep it in a warm, well-lit location. 

  • Once every 3-6 days, change the water. 

  • In 10-12 days, the cutting will sprout roots. After that, you can continue to develop it in water. 

In Soil 

  • Allow a few hours or a day for the cut end to dry and become callous after making the cuts as described above. 

  • Plant the cutting in well-draining, wet soil after dipping it in a rooting hormone. 

  • Place the pot in a location that receives bright yet indirect sunshine. 

  • It will take 2-4 weeks for the roots to develop. 

3. Growing Requirements 


It prefers strong, but filtered, light. The containers should be placed somewhat away from the sunny window, near east or north-facing windows, or on top of tables and shelves, where they will get filtered light. 


Although normal potting mixes work OK, you may improve drainage by including vermiculite or perlite in the growth media in a 2:1 ratio. One part of shredded pine bark or coconut coir can also aid in the development of the plant. Ideally, the pH level should be kept between 6-6.5. 


Standing in wet soil is a no-no for this houseplant. Allowing the soil to dry out somewhat between watering cycles is good. Check the topsoil with your index finger; if it seems dry to the touch, water the plant. 


This houseplant enjoys temperatures between 60-80°F or 15-26°C. However, as long as the plant is not in full sunlight, it can readily withstand higher temperatures. 

To avoid temperature swings, keep it away from windows and doors. It should not be exposed to temperatures below 50°F (10°C). 


Maintaining a humidity level of 40-60% around the plant will help it thrive. Keep the container somewhere humid, such a bathroom, laundry area, or kitchen. The wonderful aspect is that pothos can also grow in dry air. 


Without fertiliser, plants may thrive, albeit they will be smaller and develop more slowly. Use a balanced liquid fertiliser diluted to half strength every 5-7 weeks. In chilly areas, stop feeding in the fall until the winter. 

Diseases and Pests 

Pests like gnats, thrips, and mealybugs may wreak havoc on these plants. Use an insecticidal soap solution to keep them at bay. 

One of the most prevalent illnesses that affects plants is root rot. Avoid over-watering at all costs, and keep an eye out for wet soil. 

Bottom Line: 

Although this is not a poisonous houseplant, it does contain calcium oxalate crystals, which can cause tongue and throat discomfort if consumed. Keep it out of reach of children and pets who are playing.
