Propagating Pothos

Pothos are one of the most common houseplants. They come in varying colored patterns, are easy to maintain as they are not as fussy about light or water as other plants. They are very versatile as well; they can be cut short, or left to run wild to trail over shelves or even climb your wall like ivy. They are also so popular because they are easy to propagate. 


To propagate begin by snipping off 4 to 6 inch lengths of healthy stem for your pothos cuttings, making sure each cutting has four or more leaves. Remove the leaf that is closest to the cut end. Once you’ve cut your stems, you’re ready to begin rooting.




Place the cut ends in a jar or cup filled with filtered room-temperature water. For an extra boost you can dip the cut end into hormone rooting powder. Simply place the cutting and water in an area that gets plenty of light and wait. A month after the first roots appear you should move the roots into soil. If left too long the roots will have a hard time adjusting to soil.
