  2. Watering: Allow the top inch or two of the soil to dry out between waterings. Water thoroughly but ensure proper drainage to prevent overwatering and root rot. Water less frequently during the dormant winter months.

  4. Soil and Fertilization: Use a well-draining potting mix. Fertilize every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced liquid fertilizer to support healthy growth and variegation.

  5. Pruning and Maintenance: Trim leggy vines and remove any yellowing or damaged leaves to maintain an elegant appearance. You can also propagate cuttings to create new plants.

  6. Toxicity: The Skeleton Key Pothos is toxic if ingested, so keep it out of reach of children and pets.
