We are often asked about the amazing plant that lives behind the Check Out Desk. Did you know that it has a name? Meet Seymore!
Seymore is a 10+ years old pothos plant. Pothos, scientifically known as Epipremnum aureum, are popular indoor plants in the Pacific Northwest because they are easy to care for and they remove pollutants from the air.
We water Seymore twice a week with a little bit of plant fertilizer to keep him happy. Usually twice a year, Seymore goes on a crazy growth spurt and has to be taken down for untangling. Also at least twice a year, entire sections of Seymore die off and have to be removed to keep him looking performance-ready.
These days, Seymore is not alone. He had to be repotted last year, and in the process of fitting him into the new pot(s), he split up into several pieces. These baby Seymores are thriving and contributing to the green environment at the library.
Pothos are popular plants and are often available from your nearest garden supply store. Adopt a pothos today!
