General Info

Name story

Golden pothos
Since its green leaves are laced with the color gold, it is called Golden Pothos. Epipremnum aureum has a long and tortuous naming history, and it has been reclassified several times. It was first classified as Pothos aureus. In 1962, scholars discovered that it actually had a blossoming phase. Since then, scholars closely observed and investigated the plant's flowers, leaves and growth, and determined its latin name to be Epipremnum aureum.
Devil's ivy
Even if kept in the dark, it can stay green the whole year long, just like the tenacity of the devil. It is also known as devil's ivy because it is almost impossible to kill.

Symbolism

Happiness, good fortune, determination to achieve one's goals, wealth
