Epipremnum amplissimum - Silver Streak Pothos
Epipremnum amplissimum is a climbing aroid in the Monsteroideae subfamily that grows long, lanceolate leaves dappled with slight silver striping. It's no more difficult to grow than the average Epipremnum aureum, but the leaf shape is much more unique! However, while the standard golden pothos is fine to cascade from hanging baskets, this species really needs some support to keep growing strong and healthy. We recommend using a moss pole or bamboo stake to keep your Epipremnum amplissimum growing vertically.
• Light: Medium to bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when the top half of soil dries out
• Considerations: To promote larger and mature leaves, occasionally mist the vertical support of your choice so the aerial roots are more likely to attach. Avoid too much direct sun.

Did not arrive in good shape
I have ordered from Pistils in the past, and my experience is that if I order something hearty, like a hoya, the plant arrives in good shape. However, I have ordered two more delicate plants now, including a calathea and this Epipremnun, and both arrived in bad shape -- curled leaves with brown edges and some leaves that were completely wilted and crispy. I understand that there's some adjustment for a plant that's shipped, but this seems beyond that. Sadly, I will likely not purchase anything like this again from Pistils, because this was not an inexpensive plant, and it certainly wasn't worth the price plus the shipping that I paid for it.
