golden pothos

Epipremnum aureum

Description:

An epiphyte growing to 20 m tall, with stems up to 4 cm diameter, climbing by means of aerial roots which hook over tree branches. The leaves are evergreen, alternate, heart-shaped, entire on juvenile plants, but irregularly pinnatifid on mature plants, up to 100 cm long and 45 cm broad (juvenile leaves much smaller, typically under 20 cm long). The flowers are produced in a spathe up to 23 cm long. This plant produces trailing stems when it climbs up trees and these take root when they reach the ground and grow along it. The leaves on these trailing stems grow up to 10cm long and are the ones normally seen on this plant when it is cultivated as a pot plant. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epipremnum_...

Habitat:

This golden pothos was grown in the office garden. As it turns out very damaging. It overgrew the bamboo wall it was meant to climb and climbed on the building wall. When removed, part of the paint came with the roots (2nd and 3rd photos).
