The Golden pothos (Epipremnum aureum) belongs to Araceae (the Arum family). It is an evergreen perennial herb that is native to the Solomon Islands in the South Pacific. It crawls on the ground or climbs up trees. The ovate leaves are usually 10 to 30 cm long, but in its native habitat, the stems become woody and the leaves can grow up to one meter in size. The flowers are small, encased in spathe bracts, but are rarely seen in cultivation. It is called "黄金葛" (Oogon-kazura) in Japanese.
