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.

Requirements for Growing Baltic Blue Pothos
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.

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.
