Manjula Pothos is a new variation of Pothos that features large, heart-shaped leaves with variegation that can range from white, light yellow, and cream. Like other pothos varieties, it is extremely hardy and doesn't require any special lighting to grow. Pothos (Epipremnum aureum) plants are very popular houseplants that are nicknamed “devil’s ivy” because of their extreme hardiness.
When grown in an aquarium setting, it acts as natural filtration that helps keep nitrate levels down and can help reduce algae. You can grow it out of your aquarium by either placing it in a hang-on-the-back filter or by tangling its roots directly in the water. Over time it will grow long, stringy roots that can act as cover for fish or fry to hide in.
