Epipremnum pinnatum or Pohtos is an evergreen vine or creeper that is grown in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 10-11. It can reach heights of up to 60 feet and its stems can get up to 1.5 inches in diameter. The leaves are heart-shaped and alternate and can grow up to 3 feet long and 18 inches wide. The juvenile plants have entire leaves but on mature plants, the leaves become irregularly pinnatifid. There are many attractive and hardy cultivars of this plant, such as the Epipremnum pinnatum "Skeleton Key" which starts with Pothos-like (Epipremnum aureum) leaves but as it climbs and matures, the leaves transform into a skeleton key shape.

When growing Epipremnum pinnatum, it does well in areas that provide semi-shade to full shade and it needs regular watering. It is best to water the plant moderately and make sure to never over water it as this can be irritating to the plant. When kept in a pot in colder regions, it's beneficial to provide the plant with extra protection during winter months by moving it to a warmer spot. This will ensure it incurs know frost or snow damage.
