How Often Should I Water My Pothos Njoy?

With easyplant, taking care of your Pothos N'Joy is a breeze. Just check the easyplant reservoir once a month and refill it if empty.

Water every 1 Month
Without an easyplant pot, it's best to water your Pothos N'Joy only when the top 1-2 inches of soil become dry. Generally, you should water every 2-3 weeks, but this can vary depending on the light it receives. The more light it gets, the more quickly it will dry out. Overwatering can cause root rot, so it's best to lean on the dryer side. During the winter months, when the plant is less active and the sun is less intense, reduce your watering frequency.

Pothos Njoy Light Needs

Pothos N'Joy grows best in a well-lit space with bright indirect sunlight and can adapt to both direct sunlight and medium to low light. Avoid placing it in spaces without natural sunlight.

If you're unsure about what "bright indirect sunlight" means, consider placing the plant near a window with sheer curtains, which filters and softens the sun's rays. East or north-facing windows are usually ideal for this kind of light. While Pothos N'Joy is adaptable, try to avoid placing it in areas entirely devoid of natural sunlight.

Pothos Njoy Plant Care

Taking care of your Pothos N'Joy is rewarding. Place it in a spot where the temperature stays between 65 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit, and keep it away from chilly drafts or direct heaters. To keep your plant looking fresh and help it grow well, gently clean its leaves from dust every couple of weeks. This also lets the plant make the most of sunlight. Remember to turn the pot a little every month so all sides of your plant get even light.

How Big Do Pothos Njoy Plants Grow?

Pothos N'Joy is celebrated for its striking trailing vines that effortlessly add elegance to any indoor space. Indoors, with proper care, this variety of Pothos can reach lengths of up to 6 to 10 feet. However, in its natural outdoor environment, it has the potential to grow even longer, with vines extending up to 20 feet or more. To ensure the most vibrant and even growth indoors, place your Pothos N'Joy in a well-lit area and occasionally rotate the pot. This guarantees every side receives ample light, promoting a balanced spread of its beautiful vines.

Temperature & Humidity

Pothos N'Joy likes a warm and slightly humid environment, just like the tropical places it comes from. Try to keep the room temperature between 65 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit and make sure there's enough humidity. If your home feels dry, you can use a pebble tray or a humidifier to add moisture to the air around the plant. Just place the plant on a tray with pebbles and water, but make sure the pot isn't sitting in the water itself. Don't spray water on the leaves, as this can cause fungus problems. Keep your Pothos away from places where the temperature changes quickly, like heaters or drafty windows, to keep its leaves healthy.

Is Pothos Njoy Toxic for Pets & Kids?

The Pothos N'Joy is known to contain compounds that can irritate the mouth and throat when consumed. It's essential to place this plant out of reach of curious pets and children. Additionally, it's a good practice to wash your hands after handling any plant.

Troubleshooting Common Problems with Pothos Njoy

If your Pothos N'Joy has yellow leaves, it might be because of too much water. If you're using the easyplant pot, make sure you're only watering once a month. If you have a regular pot, wait until the top bit of soil is dry before you water again. Remember, older leaves can turn yellow and drop off as they age – that's normal. If the leaves are droopy, they might need more water, or they might have too much. Check the soil: if it's dry, give it some water; if it's wet, let it dry out a bit. Keep your plant away from cold drafts, too. If your plant isn't growing much or the leaves are pale, it probably needs more light. Move it somewhere brighter, but make sure it's not in direct sunlight.
