Cebu Blue is one of those plants that you will ALWAYS hoard more of if you get the chance. It’s as stunning and exotic as it’s name, and maybe even a little simpler than it is beautiful, to care for.
The scientific name of Cebu Blue is Epipremnum Pinnatum. This is an evergreen vine that enjoys bright, indirect sunlight, minimal waterings, peat-based soil, and fertilizer twice a month during growing seasons. Like most tropical houseplants we can keep indoors, this plant does enjoy humidity, but can tolerate being in a less humid environment. This doesn’t mean your Cebu will thrive indoors, or without humidity, but it will deal with the conditions and not simply just die off instead. If you have the opportunity to keep your Cebu in a bright eastern or southern window, I promise it’ll love it there. Just ensure that it won’t get breezy drafts, or become cold. As soon as the weather starts shifting, you may want to move it to a less breezy location, or even inside a bright terrarium or grow tent would be great for the off-season.
Technically, tropical plants can be “tricked” into growing year round, as the tropical climates they’re accustomed to do not turn “cold” in their winter months. This would be done through maintaining a decently humid and bright environment such as a grow house, or tent.
