How can I make my pothos grow better?

Pothos are one of the easiest houseplants to grow, making it a popular choice among plant enthusiasts. With its attractive, trailing vines and ability to thrive in low light conditions, it’s no wonder that pothos is a favorite among plant lovers. But if you want your pothos to really thrive and grow, there are a few things you can do to help it along.


pothos plant care


  1. Lighting: While pothos can tolerate low light conditions, it will grow better in brighter light. Place your pothos in a spot that receives bright, indirect sunlight for at least a few hours a day.

  2. Watering: Pothos likes to be kept consistently moist, but not waterlogged. Water your pothos when the top inch of soil is dry to the touch. Be sure to use well-draining soil and a pot with drainage holes to prevent overwatering.

  3. Fertilizing: Pothos is a heavy feeder and benefits from regular fertilization. Use a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer once a month during the growing season to promote healthy growth and vibrant foliage.

  4. Humidity: Pothos prefers higher humidity levels, but can tolerate normal household humidity. To increase humidity, you can place a tray of water near your plant or mist it with water regularly.

  5. Pruning: Regular pruning will help your pothos grow bushier and fuller. Use sharp, clean scissors or pruning shears to remove any yellow or dead leaves, and trim back any long, leggy vines to encourage new growth.

  6. Propagation: Pothos is easy to propagate and can be a fun way to grow your collection or share your plant with friends. Simply cut a stem with at least one leaf node and place it in water or soil until it roots.
