Pothos scientific name is epipremnum aureum. Wife started a 7G tank last year with the roots of this plant in it. The roots did grow everywhere and they were touching the substrate.

Algae quickly disappeared completely, I mean COMPLETELY, tank was so clean, as if it was cleaned with Javex.

Plants and algae grower.
