I've read about these, saw some in Lowe's the other day, and went back to get one today. Got the last one. I wonder how much more variegated it will get with increasing light? Anyone know?

I need another pothos like a hole in the head but this one I am going to look for! It's a beauty! Thanks for posting.

@seaecho I've edited my post here to say, this is apparently NOT Pothos (Epipremnum aureum 'Njoy') as I'd originally stated but it's still a pretty one!

Thanks to @GardeningJustin from Costa Farms for letting us know that Costa Farms does not carry N'Joy and Thanks to @Payton76 for letting us know that your lovely plant may very well be 'Glacier' Pothos (Epipremnum aureum 'Glacier')

I had all three; N'Joy, 'Glacier' and 'Pearls and Jade' at one time; I'm not sure if any of them are still around here anymore or if they were left at our other house when we moved ... I'll have to look through my plants to see what I have here. 😀

LOL, Shady! I know what you mean about pothos! I have only two others now, but in the past it got WAY out of hand! But. . . when I saw the 'N Joy' pictures on another message board, I realized that is what I'd seen at Lowe's. I'd seen it was a pothos and put it back down, thinking just what you said. I don't need another one of those! I was so glad one was left today! If I remember correctly, another one there had more white variegation than this one. Should have grabbed it the first time! I've learned that if I DON'T buy a plant when I'm on the fence about it, I'll ALWAYS end up regretting it later on. Usually that night, or the next day. This variety really is vivid--I love it! Thank you. Plantladylin, for the link!

Can anyone tell me what the difference is between "N Joy" and this one Pothos (Epipremnum aureum Pearls and Jade®) They look so similar.

Pearls and Jade have the green and white more or less randomly placed, and not in distinct areas like 'N Joy.' 'N Joy" also always has the green on the inside with the white on the outside. With Pearls and Jade it's kind of all mixed up together, for lack of a better way to put it. Compare this pic to the pic of mine, and you'll see what I mean.

Costa Farms Aka "Exotic Angel" dose not grow Njoy pothos.. They grow Glacier pothos . Lowes sells mostly Exotic Angel plants. So I would assume you have a glacier pothos.

I think in the case of some plants, the Exotic Angel labels are their own and the plants are the same as other more common cultivar names, with Exotic Angel's generated cultivar name. So, it could be N' Joy, IMO.

Hi Hamwild,

Payton76 is correct --- Costa Farms hasn't negotiated propagation rights for N'Joy, so you definitely won't find this cultivar coming out of our greenhouses. There were some issues with naming plants in the past (before we purchased the Exotic Angel Plants brand), and we're working hard to clean up them up on plant tags so that all variety-specific tags accurately represent that variety.

Hope this helps!
