  1. Appearance: The 'Marble Queen' Pothos features creamy-white leaves marbled with green. The variegation can range from a nearly solid white leaf with minimal green to a more evenly marbled look.

  2. Size: This plant can be kept as a tabletop plant or allowed to grow long and trailed along shelves, walls, or hanged in baskets. If unchecked, its vines can grow several feet long.

  3. Light Requirements: It prefers bright, indirect light to maintain its variegation but can tolerate lower light conditions. However, in lower light, the variegation might become more subdued, leading to more green than white on the leaves.

  4. Watering: 'Marble Queen' Pothos likes to dry out between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so it's crucial to ensure the plant is in a pot with good drainage and the soil isn't kept consistently wet.

  5. Soil: A well-draining potting mix is ideal. Most general-purpose houseplant soils will work, but adding some perlite or orchid bark can help improve drainage.

  6. Temperature and Humidity: It prefers temperatures between 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C). While Pothos can adapt to a variety of humidity levels, they appreciate higher humidity, especially when it comes to the more variegated varieties like 'Marble Queen'.

  7. Toxicity: All parts of the Pothos plant are toxic when ingested due to the presence of calcium oxalate crystals. It's crucial to keep them out of reach from pets and children.

  8. Propagation: One of the joys of Pothos is how easily they can be propagated. Simply snip a cutting just below a node (where a leaf attaches to the stem) and place it in water until roots develop, or you can directly plant it in soil.

  9. Pest Issues: Generally pest-resistant, but it's always good to keep an eye out for common houseplant pests like mealybugs, spider mites, or aphids.

  10. Maintenance: Pothos plants are relatively low-maintenance. You can prune them to maintain a desired shape or encourage a bushier growth. If leaves become dusty, you can wipe them down with a damp cloth.

  11. Air-Purifying Qualities: Pothos, including the 'Marble Queen' variety, is often cited for its air-purifying qualities, able to help remove indoor air pollutants like formaldehyde.
