Cebu Blue Care

Epipremnum pinnatum ‘Cebu blue’ is a pretty and popular variety of pothos with shiny, silvery-blue leaves that seem to sparkle in the right light. Trailing or climbing, Cebu blue is a beautiful addition to any indoor jungle, and it gets bonus points for being such an easy-care plant.

Light

Cebu blue is fairly laid-back about lighting so it will happily live in a medium light situation, but for the lushest and prettiest foliage give it plenty of bright indirect light. If you choose to move it outside for the summer, find a spot with filtered sunlight such as under a larger plant or tree.

Watering

Give it a thorough soak and let it dry out a little bit between watering, and your Cebu should be happy. You’ll be able to tell if you’re going too long between watering — you may notice your plant looking wilted or displaying yellowed leaves.

Temperature & Humidity

The Cebu is tolerant of normal household temperatures and humidity, but if you live in a particularly dry area and see any of the effects of lack of humidity you may want to try a pebble tray, humidifier, or grouping your plants together to boost humidity.

Potting Mix

While your Cebu blue will probably be fine with a bagged potting mix, we prefer a chunky, well-draining mix that includes orchid bark and perlite or vermiculite. (Just remember that vermiculite retains more moisture than perlite — to learn more about common soil amendments, click here!)

Fertilizing

You can give a well-balanced general-purpose indoor plant fertilizer to your Cebu during the growing to help it thrive. These plants are such good growers on their own that you probably will not need to fertilize much, especially if you’ve just potted it with any slow-release fertilizer in the soil mix.
