Pothos is a member of the Araceae family. It grows in south-east Asia, Indonesia and on the Solomon Islands. In the tropical rainforests the plant is a rich source of food for animals including lizards and other reptiles. The Latin name Epipremnum Pinatum is derived from the Greek word 'epi' which means 'on' and 'premnon', Greek for ‘stem’. This is because the plant grows up the stem — or trunk — of trees.
