It is a tropical plant native to the Solomon Islands.
Golden Pothos is a very common variety, with the classic dark green leaves with yellow and creamy white streaks.
Hawaiian Pothos is another similar cultivar with more intense yellow coloration.
In its native habitat the vines can grow 20' to 40' long, but as a houseplant the vines rarely exceed 8'.
The plant looks its best sitting on a high table or in a hanging basket, where the long vines can drape over the sides of the pot.
Devil's Ivy thrives in comfortable room temperatures between 60-80 F.
Set it near a bright window, but out of direct sunlight.
It thrives in bright light filtered through a sheer curtain.
When the leaves lose their yellow variegation, it usually means that the plant isn't getting enough light.
You can train the vines to climb around a window by attaching them to support hooks on the window frame, or simply let the vines dangle.
Avoid drafty windows and locations near air vents or radiators.
Devil's Ivy is poisonous to cats, so keep the plant out of Garfield's reach.
Devil's Ivy won't tolerate soggy potting soil.
Allow the top inch or two of soil to dry and then fill the pot with water.
After the excess moisture drains through, empty the saucer under the pot.
It's normal for a Devil's Ivy plant to shed a few leaves, but constant yellowing and shedding usually means that the plant is kept too wet.
In spring, summer and fall, feed Devil’s Ivy every two weeks with a balanced houseplant fertilizer.
Feed only once a month in winter to give the plant a rest.
Pinch out the growing tips from time to time to keep the plant bushy.
