What is Njoy Pothos?

N’Joy Pothos is a variety of pothos with smaller leaves with lots of white variegation.

Other names for Njoy Pothos include:

  • Epipremnum aureum ‘n’joy’
  • Epipremnum pinnatum ‘Njoy’

Njoy Pothos origins

N’Joy pothos is a cultivator of the Marble Queen Pothos. It was basically bred from the marble queen for a very similar plant, just with smaller leaves with even more variegation.

Is Njoy Pothos rare?

I got my NJoy at Lowes, so I think that means it’s not rare. However, it’s not one of the most common pothos varieties.

Even if it’s not rare, it’s still a really pretty plant and a great addition to any houseplant collection.

Is Njoy Pothos toxic?

All pothos plants are considered toxic if eaten. So, you definitely want to keep them out of reach of curious pets and kids.

Are pothos n joy easy to care for?

Pothos NJoy is a super easy to care for plant and great for beginner houseplant owners!

Is NJoy pothos a slow grower?

In my experience, the more white that a pothos has on it’s leaves, the slower of a grower it is. This is one of the slowest growing pothos varieties!

For this reason, they tend to be more “mounding” than vining – they just don’t grow long vines as quickly as, say, a golden pothos!

Njoy Pothos care guide

Pothos are super easy to care for plants and NJoy Pothos are no exception.

Njoy Pothos watering

Water your pothos when the top 2 inches of soil feel dry to the touch. You can put your finger in the soil to feel if it is ready to water.

Be sure that your pot has drainage holes in the bottom. This ensures that excess water can drain out. Pooling water means that roots can’t get oxygen and will rot and die, killing the plant.

How often should I water my Njoy Pothos?

Water your plant when the top 2 inches of soil feel dry – usually once a week. It is better to under water than over water.

Should I mist my Njoy Pothos?

Pothos love humidity. You can mist them, add a pebble tray, or run a humidifier, especially in drier climates.

Njoy Pothos lighting needs

In general, pothos plants can live with medium to bright, indirect light. However, variegated pothos such as this one will need a bit more light. In low light, they will lose their variegation and turn more green.

So, stick to bright, indirect light!

Can I keep Njoy Pothos outdoors?

You can keep your pothos in the shade outdoors as long as temperatures are at least 50 degrees overnight! They make a beautiful hanging planter or in the base of a potted tree.

Can NJoy pothos take direct sunlight?

Njoy pothos will get sunburn in direct sunlight. This will lead to yellowed or brown crispy leaves. They do much better in bright, indirect light such as on a covered porch.

Njoy Pothos soil + potting

Pothos do best with well draining soil. Usually a standard potting mix is fine. Be sure that your pot has plenty of drainage to avoid soggy soil and pooling water.

Does Njoy Pothos like to be root bound?

Pothos will slow down their growth and can even start dropping leaves if they get root bound. It’s usually best to move them to a pot 1 inch larger in diameter each spring.

Does Njoy Pothos need a moss pole?

This type of pothos is a slow grower, so it will take a long time to climb a moss pole. That being said, they definitely will climb and tend to get larger leaves when they have something to climb.

Here’s my guide on how to make a moss pole!

Njoy Pothos fertilization

Apply any houseplant fertilizer once a month in warm growing months to encourage more and faster growth.

How to propagate Njoy Pothos

It is extremely easy to propagate Njoy Pothos in water.

  2. Snip the branch with sharp scissors
  3. Remove any lower leaves
  4. Place in water so at least 1 – preferably 2 – nodes are underwater
  5. Change the water once a week and top off as necessary
  6. See roots form in 2-4 weeks
  7. Once the roots are 2-3 inches long, plant in soil

Troubleshooting Njoy Pothos

Why does my NJoy pothos have yellow leaves?

Yellow leaves usually indicate that your plant is overwatered. If the soil feels soggy, let it dry out completely before watering again.

Why does my NJoy pothos have brown leaves?

Brown, crispy leaves indicate that your plant is dry. It’s either under watered, in too much sun, or too much heat.

Usually this can be fixed with a good watering, but if the soil is hard and compact, it might benefit from being repotted in fresh soil.

Why is my NJoy pothos not growing?

Remember – these are a very slow growing plant. However, if you want to speed up growing, make sure they have an ideal environment: bright light, adequate watering, and fertilize once a month.
