Pothos kingii

This unique Pothos species is new to the US hobby and is native to Peninsular Malaysia and Thailand. I have not seen it offered for sale in the US. It resembles Pothos barberianus in it’s leaf venation, but is significantly larger even in it’s immature form. It is a shingling species that can grow quite tall in nature (21ft).  The leaves have hovered around 1″ in terrarium culture for me, but aroid.org has leaves reaching 9″ in nature.  It’s hard to say whether or not it will keep the 1″ leaves indefinitely.  It is a new acquisition to me and I will update this description should it the growth habit change.  It has been slow growing so far.
