Satin pothos plant not doing too good
I got this plant in at the end of January and she immediately shriveled up. The leaves became super crunchy and I noticed mold. So I scrapped off the top of the dirt and added cinnamon. I cut off some leaves off the plant to help her preserve her energy but uh, yeah. A piece of her also comes out really easily

I’ve accepted that she’s gonna die, I’m getting a replacement too. But I’m really trying to save her

6ft to light, indirect
4” pot with drainage
Last watered 11 months ago
I would take cuttings with 2-3 nodes and use distilled water to propagate. Put in bright, indirect light, about 400FC. Change the water every week. Once the roots are about 2-3 inches long, plant in soil.

I’m not sure what cinnamon would do to save your plant. If the leaves are curling, it could be you’re under watering. If you’re not underwatering and the leaves are crisping and browning, you could have root rot. Root rot may occur bc there isn’t enough light for the roots to absorb the water from the soil.

I put mine with bright, indirect light (400-600 FC) with 1-3 hours of direct morning sunlight. I bottom water every 10 days. My soil mix is 1/3 regular organic potting mix, 1/3 perlite, and 1/3 charcoal.
Looks like the effects of “root rot” or damage by fungal infection. It’s good to learn from these things: some we can take cuttings to attempt propagation or just noting the condition of the roots (soil drainage poor, over watering, cold air, etc. Plants themselves can teach us many things! Good luck with the new plant!
@kimmiewin thank you! I will definitely be trying that
I see one strong piece on the right. I’d take the good piece and ditch all the rotten stuff, plant surgery if you will. It might be worth saving that stem
@Lila you’re welcome! Good luck! 🪴
