Pothos (Epipremnum aureum (Devil's Ivy / Pothos)
THIS IS AN ABOVE WATER PLANT.
Got fish that eat plants? How about putting the plants where the fish can't eat them?!
Again- This is not an AQUARIUM plant. This an ABOVE the aquarium plant.
Pothos... It has been called "The Easiest houseplant" So easy, you can stick out outta the back of your fishtank.
Here is how it works and should work for you...
Plants absorbe Nitrates. (both underwater and above it.) Plants can absorb Nitrates when THREE conditions are met... it this order.
1. They have good light. 2. When they have readily available CO2. 3. Readily available nutrients.
ABOVE THE WATER of your aquarium you can knock out 1 and 2. This is called the "Areal advantage" Part 3. The Pothos stuck into the back of your aquarium filter....Sucking out the nitrates.
Pothos is a Marvelous plant for Nitrate Absorption! It is a FAST Grower so it will be sucking down the nitrates in your tank....FAST.
Just to beat this point home: You have heard of aquaponics? (Lord help me if you haven't) A large mass of fish live in an area and their poopy water is then pumped to plants who "EAT" the waste and filter the water.
Same concept here only - We aren't going to eating the fish or the Pothos.
NOTE: I hear that Pothos is POISONOUS to cat. My cat Gogo was too stupid to ever try it....Don't let your cat :)
TRY SOME POTHOS NOW.
I am very happy with the plants I received. They arrived in perfect condition. Thank you.
I live in NYC and because of the COVID-19, everything is a chaos. The mail delivery people are overwhelmed and despite an initial mistake that the USPS made, I still received the plants. They were so well packaged that the plants came intact and immediately put them under the light. They look very clean and beautiful. Thank you so much for your dedicated work and for the wonderful plants. I cannot wait to have these plants on top of the aquarium. They are very pretty!
I didn’t buy yours, but I already have clippings of pothos I shoved in the back of a HOB 60g running on my planted 29g. I was a bit overstocked, but pothos made a measurable improvement and reduced time between water changes. I took out the carbon and just used sponge to hold cuttings in place. I’ve not seen pothos as pretty as this variety though. I love the red stems. This would stay gorgeous under decent lighting.
