How propagate pothos - all tips you needed know!

Pothos plants can be propagated through stem cuttings or by planting cuttings in water. Here are the steps for propagating pothos through stem cuttings:

  • Select a healthy stem on your pothos plant and use a sharp, clean knife or scissors to cut the stem just below a leaf node (a bump on the stem where a leaf grows). Make sure the cutting is at least 4-6 inches long.

  • Remove the lower leaves from the cutting, leaving only a few at the top.

  • you can propagate at water: leave cutting at glass of water at light location or:

  1. Dip the cut end of the stem in rooting hormone. This will encourage the cutting to grow roots.

  2. Fill a small pot or container with a well-draining soil mix, such as a mixture of potting soil and perlite or vermiculite.

  3. Plant the cutting in the soil mix, making sure that the leaf nodes are buried in the soil. Water the soil lightly.

  4. Place the pot in a warm, sunny location and keep the soil moist but not soggy. It may take several weeks for the cutting to root and start growing new leaves.

To propagate pothos in water, follow the same steps as above, but instead of planting the cutting in soil, place it in a jar or vase of water. Change the water every few days to keep it fresh and wait for roots to form before planting the cutting in soil.
