Golden pothos
Hello! I just got given this little stem cutoff that was cut from a larger version of itself at my work. I was advised to keep it in a container of water to let the roots grow out and then transplant it to a pot. Should it sit in the container of water and grow out or should I do something else with it? Thanks! <3 #help #GoldenPothos
2ft to light, indirect
4” pot without drainage
Last watered 4 months ago
You can leave it in the water until the roots double in size. I like to change the water once a week so it’s fresh and give it sunlight. Then you can transplant it and watch it grow until you can cut a little stem and make more plant babies. That’s what I do with my pothos β˜€οΈ
@Ariana thank you so much! I really appreciate it <3
@ProBoneset no problem!
Just to add on to what the previous person said, changing out water regularly is a must because plants need the oxygen from the water and after a few days it runs out. That’s when roots and ends start to rot, because they become over saturated with water and can’t breathe :)
@mossycabbages thank you so much aswell! <3
I sometimes put cuttings dipping into my fish tank and they grow beautifully. Just don’t submerge the actual leaf or it will rot
@user40c49372 That’s actually a wonderful idea as we have three different fish tanks! Thank you 🐠
Awesome!!! Can’t wait to see it once it takes off
I think that’s a piece draping in the back
@user40c49372 ooh! That’s so cool!
The roots reach for the gravel. It went half way across my 35 gallon tank at the time. You can also use bamboo in the tanks, like fully submerged. Looks awesome.
Wow that’s impressive! And bamboo looks awesome in fish tanks! We have some here
@Jilliebeanstalk I’m totally going to do this! Great tip!
Golden pothos are actually super fun to have. They’re really hard to kill and grow very quick. I have them all over my room because they don’t need much sunlight. Actually some of mine don’t get any sunlight at all and they grow wonderfully
something else that you could do it put it right into the soil. But whenever you are doing this, you need to make sure that the first 2 inches of the soil is moist at all times. this almost acts as the water and allows the roots to produce! (: happy growing!
@Jilliebeanstalk kewl I was thinking about buying fish tank decorate real pretty just for water plants
Wonderful
