Pothos Pearls and Jade
- The Pothos needs medium to bright indirect sunlight, but will also do well in medium light. Avoid direct sunlight. The lower the light, the less variegation you will see.
- Pothos prefers her soil to be on the dry side. Water when the top several inches of soil has dried out.
- The ideal growing medium is a blend of equal parts of houseplant soil, peat moss, and perlite.
- Pothos are poisonous to pets.
- Pothos propagation begins with the root nodes on the stem right below the leaf or branch junctures. The first method of propagating pothos is to place the cut ends of your stems in water. Place the jar of pothos cuttings in a place that gets plenty of light, but not direct sunlight. A month after the roots begin to show, you can plant the cuttings in soil and treat them as you would any other houseplant. The second method is to take the pothos cuttings and remove the first leaf above the cut ends. Make sure you cover the first set of root nodes. Set the cuttings in a potting mixture. Keep the soil moist and keep your rooting pothos out of direct sunlight. Roots should develop after one month.
