The disinctive, almost camouflaged patterned variegation of the N'Joy made it an instant hit when this cultivar was created from it's parent plant, the equally popular Marble Queen.
The compact form and a slower growth habit than most pothos plants makes the N'Joy a great table plant, or a wonderful plant to let spill out out of pots and baskets as a hanging plant.
With smaller leaves and shorter internodes than most other pothos, this tissue cultivar of Epipremnum pinnatum, according to the patent filing,was discovered as an offshoot of a Marble Queen cultivar in Mumbai in 2007 and prompty patented for it's striking variegation and unique appearance! At least that's as far as we can gleam - the details of the many epipremnum cultivars are complex and disputed!
It's since gone on to be a hugely popular houseplant, loved for it's no-fuss easy care attitude and it's perky, bushy habit.
As mature plants, the leaves will become pinnate, but it's rare for the plants to grow to the size required for this as houseplants.

Like most pothos, the N'Joy will tolerate a wide variety of lighting conditions. To thrive, though, you should place it somewhere with very bright light, but little direct sun.
Pothos like plenty of air around their roots. Water thoroughly but irregularly, allowing the compost to dry almost completely between waterings.
Keep pothos plants warm. Above 12º year-round is ideal.
