Hello all!
My parents received this ivy as a wedding present years ago, and they were never told what kind it is. It's pretty hardy, all they do is water it occasionally and it seems to flourish. Could anyone help me identify the species? I can get more pictures if needed.
Thanks in advance!

Hi Rekos, Welcome!

I agree, your parents lovely plant is definitely Epipremnum aureum (commonly called Pothos and Devil's Ivy). They grow wild here in Florida, trailing along the ground and climbing the trees. As the plant matures and grows higher into the tree canopy, the leaves get very large and form splits.
