--Tropic, if you have more pics to share, can you post them? Yours and those in the wild.--
(Better late than never.) I've pulled out some photos of Golden Pothos (Epipremnum aurum) in the garden, plus took a few more. They give an idea of the stages they go through and what they look like at maturity.
A young plant starting out on its journey upwards.
Once they're up off they ground they fill out.
A lot of large vines going up with more new ones starting out.
These are 18 to 20 metres up in the trees.
This palm is 15+ metres tall. One advantage palms have is that their fronds will eventually drop. Golden Pothos that attaches to the frond will end up falling away with it.
Climbed up on the shed roof to get this photo.
Up on the same shed, this Pothos is racing the Syngonium to get to the top.
It's a bit difficult to get a proper perspective on the size of the leaves when they're so high up in the trees. Here's one that fell down, that's a standard chair for comparison. Bear in mind that was only a tiny piece of the plant that fell.
