: : Hi Sweden,

: Thank you so much its a epipraemnum pinnatum plant that clibs on the wall with big heart shaped green leaves it was so pretty i tried watering it and put it in the sun but no luck. thanks for you help can i maybee cut him off and start from new?

Hi Sweden,

Thanks for letting me know which plant. You could try cutting the stem to just above the last 2 leaves and hope that the roots didn't freeze. I would give it at least a month to see if anything sprouts from the shorter stem. These plants shouldn't be in temps lower than 50*F or 12*C. The correct spelling is Epipremnum pinnatum.

Do let me know if it survives.

Good luck,
