Silver and Shiny!

The photos of this pothos do not do it justice. The silver sheen on this plant is so beautiful in person! The shiny silver really stands out next to all the other plants. The leaves are very large which I feel will provide great hiding places in my tree frog viv. My plant arrived in perfect condition thanks to the excellent packaging. I am so impressed with Josh's Frogs!
