Pothos barberianus

This unusual Pothos is relatively new to the US hobby, really only surfacing for sale in the past year (2019).  It has finely marked leaves that emerge red or yellow and then turn to green. It is similar to Marcgravia in that in a terrarium it will often stay in its immature state indefinitely, with leaves staying around 1/4 inch.  It can however, grow leaves up to 7 inches.

It is slow growing and likes to climb up a wooden surface.  It is found in Borneo, Peninsular Malaysia, and Sumatra in “a wide range of habitats from primary and disturbed lowland forest on clays to ridgetop kerangas.” (Kew.org).
