Where do you prune pothos?
Take each individual vine and determine where you'd like to prune it. You'll always want to cut the vine ¼ inch (about 2/3 cm.) above each leaf. The point where the leaf meets the vine is called a node, and your pothos will send out a new vine in that area after you've pruned.
When should I cut back my pothos?
Pruning at the wrong time can lead to bare stems and vines or a stressed plant. It's best only to prune your Pothos during its growing period which is typically from spring into early fall. This allows the Pothos to recover quickly from the stress of being pruned and quickly establish new growth.
How far back can you cut pothos?
Once your pothos has been around as an indoor plant for a few years, it may begin to get leggy or develop a lot of bare spots. It is possible to prune back pothos stems as far back as about 2” inches from the soil. This drastic pruning allows the plant to regrow as if it were a young plant again.
How do you make a pothos branch?
Will leaves grow back on pothos?
Whether removed by you, fallen off because of a disease or as a result of damage, pothos plants can't regrow their leaves. But don't worry, like other plants, the pothos will make new leaves.
Why won't My pothos grow more leaves?
Too little water is a common cause of stunted Pothos plants. These tropical plants require filtered light, high humidity, and grow best in temperatures of 70 to 90 degrees F. (21-32 C.). All plant growth is diminished in temperatures above or below those listed.
Can you cut pothos and replant?
It is best to transplant rooted pothos cuttings as soon as they start roots. The preferred method of how to propagate a pothos begins the same as the first. Take the pothos cuttings and remove the first leaf above the cut ends. Dip the cut end in rooting hormone.
Should I cut off damaged pothos leaves?
As unfortunate as it is, leaves that are more than 50 percent damaged, are diseased, or are dead should be removed from your plant. They won't be able to bounce back, and this will allow your pothos plant to direct nutrients and energy to not only healthier growth, but new growth as well.
