You should pay attention to this when buying an efeutute
The first thing you are likely to look at when purchasing your houseplant is what it looks like. And the appearance of the efeutute is largely determined by the species and variety. There are, for example, single-colored, dotted or striped efeututen. The most popular efeutute species for indoor plants are the golden efeutute ( Epipremnum aureum ) and the spotted efeutute ( Epipremnum pinnatum ). Both types can have multi-colored leaves with white, silvery, or yellowish patterns. There are a total of 15 different Efeutute species and of course many more varieties.

The next step in purchasing is to make sure the plant is in good condition. Should the Efeutute lose leaves, wilt or show discoloration on the leaves in the store, then you should keep looking. A putrid smell on the pot can indicate waterlogging and moldy roots. Again, buying is not recommended.
Summary of signs of a healthy efeutute:
- Vital and healthy impression
- Plant does not lose leaves
- No stains or discoloration on the leaves
- No putrid smell
You should also make sure that the plant is not attacked by pests. Efeututen are sometimes victims of spider mites ( Tetranychidae ). You can recognize such an infestation by the leaves of the plant that are discolored or blotchy yellow.
