Golden Pothos - Triple Planted
This plant is pick up only. I'm trying something different since it's not safe to ship plants right now with such long courier delays for some regions, so it's really important to please read the Plant Pick Up FAQ's at the end before you buy to avoid disappointment.
Triple Planted Golden Pothos
This beauty has been grown from a more highly variegated Golden Pothos mother plant, with lighter and more dappled variegation than some you see for sale. This pup is also triple planted to create a more lush, full plant as she matures.
Give her plenty of light to encourage even more variegation. New leaves start with golden yellow and this particular plant's mother lightens to almost white variegation faster than my other Golden Pothos do. Being a clone, this pup should follow suit. Golden Pothos will normally fade to white variegation as they mature on the old leaves anyway, but this pup's mum starts off lighter and whitens faster.
All photos are of the same plant, which is the exact plant you'll receive. Note a little damage on one leaf (shown in the photos). I haven't removed it but you can if it bothers you. Trimming will encourage new growth but I'll leave that up to you.
Currently in an 11.5cm Teku clear pot that allows you to easily monitor moisture level and root health at a glance. Planted and well rooted in Premium Bioleaf Aroid Custom Blend potting mix for the best start in life. Happily putting out new growth. Fed half-strength Foliage Pro with every water to avoid deficiencies.
Make sure to read the plant pick-up FAQ's below before you buy.
Golden Pothos Quick Care
Same care as you'd give your Philodendron, Epipremnum and other Pothos. Golden Pothos prefer bright, indirect light (no direct sun on these leaves), but their darker green leaves do handle medium light better than most. Like most variegated plants, brighter light will encourage and support more variegation. They prefer a light, free-draining mix (I use this custom aroid blend). Frequent, light fertilising is ideal when growing (if kept somewhere warm and bright, these guys grow all year round).
They can climb or vine (climbing will give you bigger leaves). Keep them lightly moist to moist, not dry, not wet. I let the top 5cms or so dry out before watering again, but best not to leave them to get fully dry to the bottom. When it's time to repot, a clear pot means you can monitor root health and moisture levels with ease. Water more frequently in brighter, warmer conditions, less often in lower light or cooler temperatures. I find mine do better when top watered.
In a typical kiwi summer they're likely to need weekly watering, but it depends on your conditions. They prefer humidity above 50% (I use one of the cordless H2O humidifiers), but handle drier conditions better than other tropicals. You can always check the humidity using a cheap hygrometer if you're unsure.
*Plant pick up FAQ's*
Please read before you buy
With current demand causing delivery delays of 5+ days in some regions, I'm not shipping plants at present for their safety. Please only purchase provided you are happy with the following requirements. Please read in full before you buy.
If your question isn't answered below, ask first before you buy, but do keep in mind as there's only one of this exact plant shown, so there's a chance you may miss out while waiting to hear back from me, but I'll do my best to reply quickly. Your question will likely be answered below, so read this first...
I want it! How do I get this plant?
Add to cart then check out like normal. Because it's pick-up only, it doesn't matter what address you enter when you checkout, so enter your address like usual. You'll see PICK UP appears as your only shipping option. This plant cannot be shipped to you. There is only one available, the exact plant shown in all photos. Once you've paid and completed your order, it's all yours! Be sure to read the rest of the pick up FAQ's below before you go ahead.
Where is pick-up from?
One Tree Hill in Auckland. Once you've completed your order, I'll email you to arrange a pick-up day and time that suits you. Pick-up is available 7 days a week, between 8am and 8pm, Monday to Sunday. I'll let you know the pick-up address and my mobile number so we can keep in touch.
You can choose any half hour on any day to suit your schedule for pick up. Please note it will be contactless pick-up, so your plant will be placed safely under cover for you to collect, on the day and time you choose. Just text me when you're on your way. Only your plant will be waiting for you to avoid confusion. It will even have your name on it :)
What if I my plans change?
If pick-up needs to change closer to the time, all good, I'll give you my mobile number so we can keep in touch. As long as pick up is completed within 7 days of ordering, I'm flexible on day and time. I'll email you after you order to organise a day and time that works for you.
Can I order other items for pick-up also?
At the moment I can offer 'click and collect' for plants only. I'm unable to combine orders for collection, or offer collection for plants along with other items, whether you place orders separately or together. If you add other items to your order, plants will be refunded and relisted, and the other items shipped as normal. You can add multiple plants to one order, just not other non-planty items.
If you place two orders, you can pick-up your plants, however your other items will be shipped as normal. If you'd like to collect a plant (or more than one), make sure you have plants only on your order. No exceptions to this requirement sorry. And yes, I do hope to offer click and collect to everyone for everything when things get back to 'normal'.
Can someone else pick my order up for me?
Sure! The only two people who know what day and time your plant will be ready for collection is you and me, so if you want to share those details with someone else so they can collect for you, all good, that's up to you. Just ask them to text me when they're on their way.
Can you put a plant 'on hold' for me?
The exact plant for sale, is this one that's shown, so there's only the one. All photos are of the same plant. If you 'add to cart' that doesn't block others from buying it. Once your order is paid for and completed, your plant is all yours. Just adding to cart does not 'save' a plant for you, or stop others from buying it. I can't hold a plant for you. It really is 'first in, first served' and orders do need to be completed and paid for on the website.
Can you make an exception for me?
If you know me, you know the answer would usually be yes. I'll normally go out of my way to make sure everyone's happy, including changing the way things are normally done to suit my lovely customers. BUT not this time sorry. It's really important you're happy with the requirements above, otherwise it's best not to buy.
Shipping and Delivery
FLAT RATE SHIPPING
Flat rate shipping is $5.50 nationwide (or $9.50 for rural). Add as many products to your order as you like without paying anything extra for shipping. The only exceptions are plants and fragile or oversize products (like handmade pottery and coffee table books), which have their own rates.
For $2 you can upgrade to signature required. Well worth it for anything valuable or limited edition that can't be replaced. Choosing signature required also gives both of us the ability to claim if anything goes wrong with the courier. Signature required is flat rate $7.50 nationwide (or $12.50 for rural).

"Super impressed with this business. Something that is lost nowadays, is customer service. This however is not the case with Anna from “Love that Leaf”. Very happy with my purchase, very happy with the product information provided and very happy with the quick shipping and great packaging. Thanks!" Melayna Anderson
"By far the best customer care I've had in a long time. Website is such a wealth of information and the email with instructions for use after my purchase was fantastic. The pipette for measuring the correct amount was such a great inclusion, and the personalised message on the package was very cool. Definitely my go to shop for plant supplies now.
