An evergreen vine in its native Polynesia, where it uses aerial roots to climb up to 20m with enormous leaves that reach up to a metre across, Epipremnum aureum – or Devil’s Ivy - is a true jungle plant.
Luckily, as a houseplant it is much less vigorous, yet still retains large, glossy green leaves with yellow streaks which grow to 10cm (4in) long. The trailing stems will grow and grow unless you cut them back, making this an ideal plant for hanging baskets, or climbing up a support such as a moss pole and it looks fantastic cascading down shelving.
Incredibly tolerant of low light, Epipremnum will even retain its leaf colour in near darkness. They’re so easy and undemanding to look after, requiring just a little trimming to keep them in check, and avoid overwatering.
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven performer.
House plants are a great help for improving our physical health and wellbeing by filtering harmful pollutants from the air inside our homes.
Supplied as a potted plant in a 12cm pot, growing to a height and spread of 2m (6½ft).
