Skeleton Key Pothos


This isn't your average pothos! Skeleton Key (Epipremnum pinnatum Skeleton Key) stuns with deeply lobed, split leaves (as the plant matures) that resemble, you guessed it, a skeleton key. This unique deep-green foliage adds an edgy, sculptural element to your space, making it a must-have for trendsetting plant collectors or if you want a showstopping plant to decorate your room.


Skeleton Key Pothos isn't all good looks, though. It's a superstar when it comes to ease of care, so it’s fantastic for beginners and experienced plant enthusiasts. We have a limited supply of this on-trend wonder. Add some conversation-starting flair to your plant collection before it disappears! We grow Skeleton Key in a hanging basket so you can enjoy it in a window. Or you can pop the hanger off and enjoy it as a tabletop plant. 


Note: Our Skeleton Key Pothos don't yet have their characteristic mature foliage, but your plant will develop it as the plant matures.

Epipremnum pinnatum Skeleton Key


Skeleton Key is a form of Epipremnum pinnatum, and as such, it’s a sibling of popular varieties like Albo, Cebu Blue, Baltic Blue, and Sunburst Pothos. Like these varieties, it’s an easy-growing species that loves tropical conditions but adapts well to your home.

For optimal growth, give your Skeleton Key Pothos lots (and lots) of bright light inside. In most areas, some direct sun coming through a window is fine (especially if you give it a chance to acclimate to the more direct light). It tolerates medium and lower light levels well, though it won’t look as good or grow as fast. Water it as the top 25 to 50 percent or so of the potting mix dries to the touch. Skeleton Key thrives in average to above-average household temperatures; keep it above 55F for best results. Average to above-average relative humidity levels are just fine, too.


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.
