How to Propagate Pothos

Regularly pruning back and propagating pothos plants leads to fuller, bushier parent plants as it promotes new growth at the base instead of just long vines.

 A single pothos plant can produce an unlimited supply of new baby clone plants over time through cuttings due to the plant's natural regeneration abilities.

Pothos is one of the easiest, most beginner-friendly plants to propagate via cuttings compared to trickier botanicals.

 When selecting pothos cuttings for propagation, target long, healthy vines, cutting 6-8 inches below the last leaf at an angle.

Pothos vines can continue growing and multiplying indefinitely, producing an unlimited supply of new plants.

 To water propagate pothos, place cuttings in small containers filled with room temperature fresh water, changing it out every 2-3 days.

Once pothos cuttings have developed 2-3 inch root systems from propagation, they can be planted by inserting into small starter pots with well-draining potting soil.

After propagating pothos cuttings in water or soil and transplanting into starter pots, allow the new plants time to further develop their root systems by watering moderately to keep soil moist but not saturated.
