Epipremnum is from the Greek 'epi' meaning "upon" and 'premnon' meaning "a trunk".
Pinnatum means "feathered" in Latin and refers to the splits in the mature foliage.
E. pinnatum has leaves are elongated, narrow and green with hints of a bluish grey color. If allowed to climb up a surface or a pole the leaves will become larger and begins to develop multiple splits in each leaf.
E. pinnatum wants bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some direct light but avoid hot midday sun or the leaves will scorch.
Yellowing leaves are a sign of too much water. Ensure the pot has good drainage and allow the surface of the soil to dry between watering. Older leaves will naturally yellow and die eventually.
If the soil is staying moist for more than two weeks between watering, or the soil feels soggy or very wet after a week then consider repotting the plant into a smaller container: the roots staying wet for too long will lead to root rot and a quick decline in the plant's health. When repotting use a well drained mix (see aroid soil)
E. pinnatum cannot take direct sun, except in the early mornings or late evenings. Make sure it is situated away from parts of the home that get direct, hot midday sun.
