I'll transition the pothos to the full strength light gradually, at the moment the greenhouse only gets direct sun for a few hours in the morning. It sounds like the Aglaonema doesn't like temperatures below 15C so probably not a good option for me. The greenhouse can stull drop to 3-4C on the coldest nights here.

pothos (above) grows wild where I live, and really isn't hurt by some direct sun
The one above grows where a friends laundry drains, it is so aggressive it grew into the slats of his air conditioner while on vacation, and destroyed it.

Except that isn't pothos, I forgot what it's called tho, really popular in s. Florida

I think that is the sexually mature form of pothos, only possible with direct light.

Ikea sell cheap pothos. Takes a lil while to take off in a bathroom window. But once rocking cuttings transfer well.

This happened a week or so ago, I guess after 6-7 years they all just decided to up and die? Nothing added, changed chemicals or nothing. I Just trimmed it all down, so my 2'x4' planter now looks like this.

There is signs of new growth comming in so I dont know what happened, interesting to say the least......

It...

What kind of potting mixture are you using? The plant looks over watered in the picture. Regular soil isn't the best medium to use with potted plants. Soil doesn't allow any oxygen to get to the plant roots.

Zero dirt, whats in the box is lava rock and bio balls suspended above the bottom. What you see is just minor gunk sitting on top of the bio media
