Plant Care Guide:
1. Light Requirements: The Marble Queen thrives in bright, indirect light but can tolerate lower light conditions. Place it near a window where it can receive filtered sunlight or in a well-lit room. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.
2. Watering: This plant prefers slightly moist soil but can tolerate periods of drying out between waterings. Allow the top inch of soil to dry before watering thoroughly. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so it's important to avoid waterlogged conditions.
3. Temperature and Humidity: The Marble Queen adapts well to average room temperatures ranging from 60-85°F (15-29°C). It can tolerate lower temperatures but should be protected from drafts. The plant thrives in moderate humidity levels, but it can also adapt to drier environments.
4. Soil and Fertilization: Use well-draining, peat-based soil to ensure proper water drainage. Fertilize the Marble Queen every 2-3 months during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer. Follow the instructions on the fertilizer packaging for proper dilution and application.
5. Pruning and Maintenance: Regular pruning helps maintain the Marble Queen's compact and bushy appearance. Trim any leggy or overgrown stems to encourage new growth. You can also trim off any yellow or damaged leaves to keep the plant looking its best.
6. Toxicity: It's important to note that the Marble Queen Pothos, like other Pothos varieties, can be toxic if ingested. Keep it out of reach of pets and children.
