I received this marble queen on Thursday.. I received her with 4 yellowing leaves and root bound in the mail… I cutoff a few of the yellowing leaves to ensure white stems, was that a ok move? any suggestions on making her transition smooth? I appreciate any feedback #HappyPlants #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #PlantAddict #NewGrowth #PropagationStation #MarbleQueenPothos #PothosPack #PothosWater #PothosNJoy #PlantTherapy

Hi! She’s a beaut! Dont worry about the ones you cut off but you may want tot to wait until she acclimates to her new home to do further pruning. Pothos are pretty hardy and typically prolific plants. She should acclimate and flourish. Snipping right next to a node is best.
The rule of thumb is not to remove more than 1/3 of the plant at a time. Just as a guide. The yellowing could be due to too much water or too little light. Like Jean said, I’m sure she will flourish after she settles
@StarCoralcactus thank you! I also discovered she is root bound :( so that must be part of the reason as well. She is receiving indirect sunlight from my east window. I will also need to repot her!
@TheOddAsity I cut off like 2 or 3 leaves because I was afraid it would turn the stem green. I watched a video saying it was helpful but I am never sure!! Thank you for you help I appreciate all the information!
I've noticed that leaving them in their pot for a week and watering them helps them get used to your home environment.

Pothos are pretty easy to care for so make sure you water, use plant food every watering and they should be fine.
