TOPIC: Golden Pothos - Office Lighting/Watering Questions

Golden Pothos - Office Lighting/Watering Questions 5 years 9 months ago #5120

Good afternoon,

I've added some greenery to my office cube, my first pothos ivy. The ivy sits underneath a fluroescent tube light 2 feet above it for around 6 hours until I leave. I usually place it on the filing cabinet for additional lighting when I leave. I'm seeing evidence of leaf burn I believe. Am I giving the plant too much light? I am keeping the soil semi-moist, should I be misting the plant as well? I'm also wondering if I should keep the plant in a dim area after I leave to let the plant "re-charge"? Any suggetions would be appreciated.

Take care,

Aaron

first thing first this is not bonsai. second thing floresent lighting will not burn leaves they do not generate enough heat.i dont think you need to worry about suplemental lighting i have seen tons of plants thrive in office lighting conditions.
