Golden Pothos: Since its green leaves are laced with the color gold, it is called Golden Pothos. It has a long and tortuous naming history, and it has been reclassified several times.
Devil's Vine: It's also referred to as Devil’s Vine because it is quite impossible to kill the vine.
According to Feng Shui, areas like the tops of cabinets and corners gather dead energy that can restrict a home's positivity. Placing a Golden Pothos there relieves you of this problem because they restore positive energy and also are very easy to care for.
☘ The Golden Pothos is a popular houseplant, largely due to the way in which it cleans the air.
☘ It's called “Money Plant ” by people living in the Indian subcontinent, Chinese, Taiwanese, Thai and some Southeast Asian countries.
☘ Golden Pothos was rated one of the best houseplants for removing all indoor air toxins.
☘ In the NASA report, it was one of the best all-around performers, removing 73% of benzene from a sealed experimental chamber in a 24-hour period (the fifth-best on the list) and 9.2% of Trichloroethylene (7th on the list).
☘ This plant was featured in a TED Talk by Kamal Meattle as one of the three essential plants for cleaning the air.
☘ In newly-renovated homes, the Golden Pothos has been shown to absorb benzene, trichloroethylene and formaldehyde, although you cannot rely on the plant alone to remove all harmful gases from a room. Nevertheless, they have tenacious vitality, and can quickly convert formaldehyde into sugars or amino acids, while decomposing any benzene emitted by photocopiers and printers, making it no surprise that this plant is often seen in homes and offices.
