CUTTING ONLY right now

The Shangri La Pothos, scientifically known as Epipremnum aureum 'Shangri La,' is a captivating and sought-after plant that has earned a special place in the hearts of plant enthusiasts and indoor gardeners alike. As a variegated cultivar of the Epipremnum aureum species, it showcases stunning green leaves with creamy white and silvery splashes, creating an enchanting contrast that sets it apart from other common houseplants.

Origin and Discovery:
The Pothos plant species, including the Shangri La variety, is native to the Southeast Asian region, particularly found in countries like Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand. The name "Pothos" was derived from the ancient Greek term "Epipremnum," meaning "upon the trunk." This name is a nod to the plant's natural tendency to climb trees in its native habitat.

The Shangri La Pothos is believed to have been discovered through natural mutations within the Epipremnum aureum species, leading to the unique and visually appealing variegation patterns seen in its leaves. The plant's name, "Shangri La," evokes an aura of mystery and allure, taking inspiration from the mythical Himalayan utopia described in James Hilton's novel "Lost Horizon."

Appearance:
One of the most striking features of the Shangri La Pothos is its vibrant, heart-shaped leaves, which exhibit intricate patterns of green and white hues. The creamy white variegation appears as if an artist carefully splashed paint onto the lush green canvas of the leaves. Each leaf is unique, creating an overall appearance of elegance and sophistication.

Caring for Shangri La Pothos:
One of the reasons for the popularity of the Shangri La Pothos is its ease of care, making it an ideal choice for both experienced and novice gardeners. Here are some key care tips for this charming green marvel:

Light: Shangri La Pothos thrives in medium to bright, indirect light. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight for prolonged periods as it may lead to leaf burns.

Watering: Like most Pothos varieties, the Shangri La prefers moderately moist soil. Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Overwatering should be avoided as it can lead to root rot.

Temperature and Humidity: The plant enjoys warm and humid conditions, similar to its natural tropical habitat. Maintain a temperature range of 65-85°F (18-29°C) and provide occasional misting to enhance humidity.

Soil: A well-draining and nutrient-rich potting mix is suitable for Shangri La Pothos. You can also add some perlite or orchid bark to improve drainage.

Propagation: Propagating Shangri La Pothos is relatively simple. It can be done through stem cuttings placed in water or directly in soil.

Pruning: Regular pruning helps maintain the plant's shape and encourages new growth. Trim any leggy or yellowing stems to keep the plant healthy and attractive.

Benefits:
Apart from its aesthetic appeal, Shangri La Pothos offers several benefits as a houseplant. It is known to be an air-purifying plant, effectively removing indoor pollutants like formaldehyde, benzene, and xylene, making it a valuable addition to any living space.

Note of Caution:
While Pothos plants, including the Shangri La variety, are popular for their low toxicity, they are not entirely safe for pets or small children if ingested. It's essential to keep them out of reach and seek immediate medical attention if accidental ingestion occurs.
