Steps to propagate Pothos in water from cutting
1. Simply take a cutting from a pothos plant with a sharp clean shear. Make sure to get at least two to three nodes with your cutting and then remove the bottom leaves. Removing the bottom leaves keeps the stem clean to submerge in water and for the roots to develop.
2. After cleaning pothos cutting place the cutting in water submerging at least two nodes in water. Place the cutting next to a window.
Pothos plants grow very rapidly. There are many different varieties of pothos that have vibrant colors and different patterns.
Pothos is a tropical plant which thrives in temperatures between 60 to 80 degree Fahrenheit. Pothos will not survive above 85 degrees Fahrenheit and even below 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
In tropical regions and places like Hawaii you can even plant Pothos outside all year round, however in regions with extreme heat or extreme cold you must grow pothos inside the house.
When planted indoors Pothos also help to increase humidity and help to ease allergy as well. Pothos leaves act like little natural air filters for your own.
3. After three to four weeks pothos plants begin to develop really nice set of roots. The plant also starts to produce new leaves as well. It is a great experience to see the roots develop in the water right in front of your eyes.

Steps to plant Pothos after propagating
1. So what I have here is a hanging basket and I think this pothos will be perfect to grow in this hanging basket and what I have is very loose organic soil. This is made with organic compost, some perlite for drainage, and also from coconut coir which retains moisture as well.
2. I’m getting my containers ready and you can see pothos has also developed new sets of leaves as well. So you can also grow pothos indoors just in water as well.
3. I’m going to make a little section and take my pothos and I’m simply going to create a little area in the container and plant it sideways just like you plant tomatoes.
This way lots of the stem is going to be in contact with as well and that’s what you want because it will keep growing more and more roots. So more the stem that is in contact with the soil the more roots it will generate and more moisture it will absorb and better it will grow.
4. So one last step let’s water this pothos plant. Water generously because it just came out of the water so it’s looking for a lot of moisture. We’re going to water generously to completely moisten the soil make the soil wet and afterward you can just keep the soil moist and it should do just fine.
All right the Pothos plant has been propagated it’s been planted and I’m going to hang it on a balcony.
Also, remember if the temperature goes above eighty degrees Fahrenheit you must bring the pothos plant inside, or if it goes below 45 degrees Fahrenheit even below 50 degrees Fahrenheit in winter you must bring it inside because this is a tropical plant it will not tolerate extreme hot or extremely cold temperatures.
