'Pearls and Jade' is a cultivar of Pothos that is small in stature compared to other cultivars of Epipremnum aureum. The mature leaves of 'Pearls and Jade' are about 2 to 3 inches in length, in contrast to the 4.5 to 5 inch long leaves of its parent 'Marble Queen'. The cultivar 'Pearls and Jade' has very pretty variegated foliage, with leaves displaying many irregular streaks and blotches of green, white, and gray coloration. This plant prefers a well-draining potting medium. Keep the soil moist, but let it dry between waterings. It does well in both bright and lower-light situations and thrives in high humidity. It works well in a hanging basket, as a desktop plant with the stems trailing over the sides of the container, or in a pot with a totem so the stems can attach and climb the post. In frost-free areas it can be grown outdoors as a groundcover.

Pothos is said to be good at removing indoor pollutants like formaldehyde from the air, making it a great plant to grow indoors. Be aware, though, that the plant has toxic properties, and one should be vigilant when growing this plant in a household with children and pets.
