Pothos are by far one of my favorite houseplants to have. They are very low maintenance and are fast growing I’d you feed and water them.
I feed them every one to three months even though they require feeding monthly. And still they thrive so when I tell you they are low maintenance I mean that.
I feed my Pothos with Jobbes plant food spikes. They are slow release plant food stakes I insert in the soil and let do their thing.
I water my Pothos when they are dry which is usually every two weeks or so. Most of the ones I have are in pots near the window in indirect sunlight. The ones in direct sunlight tend to grow two times as fast as those in indirect light.
I have one right now that been on a shelf in indirect sunlight and is nearly vining to the floor.
I also have a few vines I cut from another Pothos that need to be propagated. Today I’ll start with the already cut vines that need propagating.
How to Propogate a Pothos Houseplant
— small transparent containers (like these)
The nod is were the new roots will grow from so you need to ensure each leaf cutting has one.
And here’s what the leaf cutting with the nod should look like after cutting away the stems.
Step 3 – All Pothos clipping need to root is sunlight and fresh water. Under those conditions within a few weeks my cutting have new roots and are ready to be potted.
I like to group several leaves in one jar to create stability and keep the leaves in place. I also do this so the roots intertwine and I can plant all of the leaves together in one pot when it’s time.
How long before I can pot my rooted Pothos?
Its usually anywhere from 3 to 6 weeks before I pot my rooted Pothos. I give each cutting enough time to form a 3+ inch root before potting.
How often should I change the water?
You should change the water in your container once a week and no longer than every 14 days. Not changing the water can lead to sick leaves, gnats and slow growth.
After a few weeks of water and sunlight your root system should look Iike this.
Once your root system is developed you can transfer the bunch of new plants to a single pot or plant each new plant in its own pot.
