- Watering: Exotic Forest ships freshly watered plants. Do not water your Pothos until it exhibits the proper signs.
- Repotting: Do not immediately repot your plant, which would likely result in shock and leaf-loss. Allow it to acclimate to its new environment for at least one week.
- Lighting: Place your Pothos in filtered, low light for a few days to acclimate. Relocate your Marble Queen Pothos to your desired location that fits its care needs afterward. Do not ever place a freshly un-boxed plant in direct sun.

FAQ about Marble Queen Pothos:
- What’s the best watering schedule for the Marble Queen Pothos? This is a hard question to answer: depending on your plant’s growth and environment, your watering “schedule” will differ. The best solution? Regularly check your soil’s moisture levels and water when 50% of the soil is dry. Can’t reach that far? Use a clean chopstick or plant stake; if it pulls out clean, that means it’s time to water!
- Can the Marble Queen Pothos survive in low light? Technically, yes. Do we recommend it? Not really. In low-light conditions, your Marble Queen Pothos will eventually lose some of its variegation and can revert to all-green. Another danger? Overwatering! With low light, water doesn't evaporate as quickly as you’re used to, so overwatering is a serious threat.
- What’s the scientific name for the Marble Queen Pothos? The “proper” name for the Marble Queen Pothos is Epipremnum aureum ‘Marble Queen’.
