About

Cebu Blue is a vining houseplant with shiny silvery-blue leaves that look sparkly under bright light. It is native to Cebu Island in the Philippines, as well as Asia and Australia. Cebu Blue is in the Pothos family and, like other pothos, is a fast-growing climber that thrives with very little fuss. 


The leaves start out delicate and lance-shaped, showing off many shades of blue-green and blue-silver. When Cebu Blue reaches maturity, the leaves turn primarily green, broaden, and develop deep fenestrations. As a houseplant, though, it takes a while to reach this point and will keep the lance-shaped silvery-blue leaves for a long time. In maturity, it is often confused with a deeply fenestrated Monstera species. 


Because the immature and mature plants look so different, this species is very muddled. There are 24 known synonyms for E.pinnatum. Cebu Blue is a natural variation of the standard dark-green leaved specimen.

Other Notes

Epipremnum pinnatums are also known as dragon-tail plants and centipede tongavine. They are invasive in many regions, so keep them indoors.
