About the Epipremnum


Though a common table plant, the Epiprenum is actually toxic, so you definitely will want to hang it somewhere your pet or child won't reach.


The Epipremnum pinnatum is commonly found in the tropical and subtropical parts of Asia, Australia, and the Pacific. It has a lot of popular names, but two of the most common are marble queen (because the plant will stay green no matter the amount of light it receives) and and devil's ivy (because it is invasive in some regions and really hard to get rid of).

Air Purification

A great houseplant and a great air purifying plant too. One of the best at removing toxins from the air, which is one reason people tend to have more than one in different areas of the house.

Caring for an Epipremnum


The Epiprenum needs moderate watering, meaning if you forget to water it every now and then it'll be ok, as long as the soil is not totally dry. Be more regular during the hot and dry seasons, but careful not to overwater it and allow excess water to drain.

Lighting and Placement

Epipremnums are versatile plants, thriving in various light conditions. They can tolerate both full sun and partial shade, making them adaptable to different environments.


Not a lot of plant food needed here; every other month of feeding is fine. Give yours some fertilizer that is high in nitrogen, and diluted to 1/2 the recommended strength. Easy does it.


This plant prefers to be more root-bound in a smaller pot. Once it grows out of it, repot it to the next pot size up. Repotting every other year should be fine.

Pruning and Flowering

Prune Epipremnums to control size and shape, trimming back any leggy or overgrown vines. Remove dead or yellowing leaves regularly to promote new growth. These plants are fantastic for propagating as well!

Epipremnum SOS
