Plant Bio

Epipremnum aureum Shangri-La

Shangri-La, also sometimes nicknamed Sleeping Pothos because its leaves don’t fully open, is a distinctive and hard-to-find variety said to be developed in Japan in the early 2000s. It features textural leaves that tend to stay closed or cupped. We know this plant isn’t for everyone, but we wanted to make it more available in North America.

Like other Epipremnum varieties, while it tolerates low light, it loves a bright spot and grows best within 3 to 4 feet of an unobstructed east- or west-facing window. It prefers average household temperatures and humidity levels (40 percent or more is ideal, but not necessary to be successful with this plant). Water as the half or so of the potting mix dries to the touch. Please take care not to overwater it and do keep it away from hot or cold drafts.

Note: This plant may have some natural degree of toxicity and may cause discomfort or illness if ingested. Additionally, exposure to the sap of this plant may cause discomfort to individuals with a sensitivity to it upon contact. Grown for ornamental purposes and not intended for human or animal consumption.
