Baltic Blue Pothos Plant Information

Baltic Blue Pothos (Epipremnum pinnatum ‘Baltic Blue’) is native to Northern Australia to Malaysia, across Indochina, and in the southern part of Japan, China, and Taiwan. This tropical climber produces rich green foliage that takes a blue cast with maturity. Baltic Blue Pothos also displays striking fenestrations (lobes) as it grows.

This pothos variety is closely related to Cebu Blue pothos (Epipremnum pinnatum ‘Cebu Blue’), but both are different, as Baltic Blue Pothos shows off darker foliage and earlier fenestrations.

Light

Baltic Blue Pothos has a deep blue-green hue on the foliage. To ensure it takes the best color, expose it to a minimum of 2-3 hours in the direct mild morning sun. Without proper light exposure, the leaves may turn pale.

Avoid keeping the plant in complete shade or the harsh afternoon sunlight.

Soil

Baltic Blue Pothos would thrive in a regular potting mix. Use a blend of vermiculite or perlite in the growing medium in a ratio of 2:1 to enhance drainage.

You can add one portion of shredded pine bark or coconut coir to boost the growth. It grows best at a pH level between 6-7.

Also, during the colder months, the plant enters the dormant stage, so cut back on watering in winter.

Temperature and Humidity

Baltic Blue pothos grows best in the temperature range of 60-80°F or 16-27°C. Do not expose it to a temperature below 50°F or 10°C.

It would do just fine in normal household humidity.
