My Golden Pothos, or Epipremnum aureum, has been the easiest and fastest-growing plant I own. Of all of the indoor plants that are hard to kill, the pothos can survive for quite a while with indirect light and little water. I love the vines that mine is creating, it resembles an ivy (also known as Devil’s Ivy). I plan to hang this indoor plant from a macrame hanger on the ceiling.
