Up to 60 ft (18 m) tall in its native forests of Malaysia to New
Guinea, this species can easily be kept to a manageable size in
cultivation. The juvenile leaves are oblong-lanceolate and usually
entire, although they are sometimes perforated or pinnatifid.
The perforated, adult leaves are up to 3 ft (1 m) long by 18 in (45
cm) wide and often have translucent spots along the midrib. Aureum (syns
Epipremnum aureum, Pothos aureus, Rhaphidophora aurea, Scindapsus
aureus), devils ivy or pothos, has apple-green, heart-shaped leaves
marbled with creamy white or gold.
