Just checked and all your props are marked correctly! They're beautiful cuttings and should grow into very nice plants!
That’s it I’m moving back to SA
@kscape are you in the Army? My husband did 37 yrs in the Army. Thank you or whomever serves for you service and sacrifices. πŸ’š
@AmusingEndive Thank you to your husband as well! My boyfriend’s family is all Army, especially his grandfather who served in Vietnam 🀍

They were stationed here awhile back, never left and we’ve moved closer to them 😊
Not jealous at all! 😍
@kscape oh cool, my husband went to Good for training before he went to Iraq in 2009. Thank the whole family for their service and sacrifice.
@ABCD I got more today! Help me ID them 🀭
The philo is 😍, and so is the marble queen!
@tmbryant37 Please help me 😭😭 I’m so overwhelmed and confused by all the Pothos πŸ™ƒ

Can I ask you a HUGE favor Tabetha? Could you kindly look at my Oasis and help me confirm I ID’d them right? 😭😭🀍
@kscape attempt 2 πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…
They all look right but I might be wrong 🀷🏽
@ABCD on my Oasis? Or on the post? 😊
@ABCD Ah! Thank you so so so much 🀍🀍🀍
@kscape but im not good at IDing so don’t settle for that answer
@ABCD lmao it’s okay! I think they’re all correct 🀭
Can I ask what kscape means?
@ABCD it’s just a screen name I use! A combination of that and escape, oh and the β€œi” as internet 😊
@kscape Thanks for the answer love! There are so many pothos out there, and a lot of the variegated ones look very similar so it's easy to get overwhelmed with so many options.

I am a big fan of both those and philos so if you have any questions as they grow please tag me 😁
@tmbryant37 Yes yes please! I might bother you here and there! I’ve only owned fully matured Pothos but for some reason, my brain has a hard time ID’ing with just a couple of leaves!

So can I keep them in their own glass containers? What about light? I have a south facing window and get bright, direct light. I also have a grow light! Do I change the water every week? Is any water okay?

Sorry! First time propagating these plants so I’m nervous haha πŸ˜…πŸ˜…
Pothos are super easy to propagate and you know more than you think you do based in your questions so they'll be just fine πŸ™‚

They should stay in water until they have about 3 inches of solid root, not just a few hairs.

Changing the water every week is good, and if you have rooting powder you can give them a dip now before any roots form to give them a kick start.

Props like lots of bright indirect light and humidity. Pothos leaves will burn in direct light as you may have seen in your adult plants.

The philos you have will get the same care as they develop their roots so all the babies can be in the same nursery section.
@tmbryant37 Thank you so much! I’ve heard about the rooting hormones thingy, is there a brand or a specific one to use? Or is there’s a cost-friendly alternative on Amazon? I’m kind of broke but am interested in them! What about rotting of stem? Can that occur? 😊
This is the one I use, and I've seen it at Walmart for a little less than it's listed here: Bonide BND925 - Bontone II Rooting Powder, Hormone Root Fertilizer 1.25 Oz

Theoretically the stem could rot if the cutting isn't going to take, but all of yours look to be in good shape. If the stems were super beat up or torn or broken that's when you would see rot instead of growth. But I'm assuming your cuttings have nodes attached and that node is what tells them to root. Just be sure to keep the water line above the node and below the leaves.
@tmbryant37 you have been so incredibly helpful!! Thank you so much once again! Can’t wait to update on these in a couple of weeks or so 😊🌿
Any time! Please do keep us updated on how they're coming along.
