Hi all,
Pothos (or even Photos [!] ) is a commonly used name by nurseries and gardeners for several forms of Epipremnum, Scindapsus, or Rhaphidophira. We must remember that the genus Pothos belongs to another subfamily Pothoideae, and the genera mentioned above belong to Monsteroideae, tribe Monstereae. The Monstereae tribe is easy to distinguish even when not in bloom. Just look at the leaves - one leaf has a right side broader, the next one has the left side broader and so on. When unfolding they are sequentially left and right convolute.

I wonder if the one nicknamed Pothos "splash" is one of the varieties of Scindapsus pictus.  Malesiana was offering a few different ones that I havent seen before.  Not sure if any of them get a purplish leaf though, the 2 more common forms are plain/dark green with cream/white speckles or markings.  Sounds very interesting to say the least Julius.  Keep us informed.
