Baltic Blue Pothos (Epipremnum pinnatum Baltic Blue)
Baltic Blue Pothos Plant FeaturesBaltic Blue pothos is a must-have plant for pothos or aroid fans who are looking for something new and different to add to their houseplant collections. This clone of Epipremnum pinnatum features rich green leaves that develop a bluish cast as they mature. As is the case with most pothos varieties, the leaves of Baltic Blue show off dramatic fenestrations as the plant grows, but this selection tends to develop these cuts earlier than other varieties.
Baltic Blue pothos is suitable for growing on a bright desk or tabletop when young -- you can let its stems grow horizontally along a surface. Or you can grow it in a hanging basket, allowing the stems to gracefully trail down from the pot. Or, you can grow it up vertically on a totem or other support. It performs equally well no matter how you train it, making Baltic Blue one versatile plant! As is the case with most pothos varieties, it makes for a good tabletop plant at an early age, but if you grow it vertically, you can feature it in your home or office as a lovely floor plant.
Baltic Blue pothos is closely related to Cebu Blue pothos (Epipremnum pinnatum 'Cebu Blue'), but it is a different plant. Baltic Blue tends to have darker leaves that fenestrate earlier. Cebu Blue has foliage that has a much more silvery blue cast.

Baltic Blue Pothos Growing InstructionsLight
Baltic Blue Pothos can thrive in many light conditions. Ideally it grows best in medium- and high-light spots. (This kind of light creates a medium to strong shadow throughout much of the day). Too bright of light will turn the leaves greener than blue. Our Plant Hunter suggests growing it within 3 to 4 feet of an unobstructed east- or west-facing window where it will get at least 60 footcandles of light.
Baltic Blue pothos, like other pothos varieties, prefers to dry out a bit (but not completely) between waterings. Never leave the potting mix should wet or saturated for an extended time. Overwatering causes stress in pothos, which results in the foliage going yellow prematurely. Check the soil moisture before you water.
Baltic Blue pothos tolerates the average humidity levels found in most homes or offices. For optimal growth and performance, it's helpful to boost the amount of moisture in the air in particularly arid conditions.
Like other houseplants, Baltic Blue pothos benefits from twice yearly feeding, generally, every 6 months. Use a fertilizer formulated for houseplants or container plants. Follow the directions on the product packaging. You can fertilize it more often if you wish for your plant to grow faster. Never use more fertilizer (in terms of quantity or frequency) than the instructions on the product’s packaging recommend.
Young Baltic Blue pothos from our farm have been grown in a mounded form to reduce the amount of damage to the plant in shipping. As it matures, this pothos variety begins to vine and can be displayed as a hanging plant or trained to grow up a peat post. If you like to keep your Baltic Blue pothos compact, simply pinch back new growth; this encourages the plant to branch out, becoming more full. You can pinch or prune it at any time of the year without worry of hurting the plant.
This variety is grown for ornamental use and is not intended for human or animal consumption. We advise keeping it out of reach from children or pets that may nibble.
