Suggestions on perking her up? Repot maybe? Thanks!

#GoldenPothos
Last watered 1 month ago
Hi Crystal. Are you keeping her outside? Depending on your climate that might not be ideal. Also, what is the light situation like and how often are you watering? Pothos can live in shade but will thrive in bright, not direct sunlight. Also, Pothos like to dry out a little between waterings, so always check and don’t rely on the app. Hope this helps. πŸͺ΄πŸ™‚
She’s also just gotten very leggy. I’d recommend choosing the longest (about 1/3 of the stems or so) to snip off so you can propagate the ends πŸ’š
Hi I don’t know how to send you the link but go on youtube and search for a channel called @Plantswithkryastal
@LaSiguanaba Thank you! I have her on our carport. She gets a small amount of almost direct light in the morning, but mostly indirect. We are in Florida. I’ve trimmed her a little, but I see roots in the bottom of the pot. I know they like to be tight, but I don’t want her root bound.
@debbiedo I have trimmed her and am propagating now, but I think I need to do more as well. I want her bushy! lol thank you πŸ™‚
@Imissmydeaddog checking it out now πŸ™‚
@NotablePipevine You’re welcome! Looking at the photo, I’m thinking the weight of her branches may be contributing to the top looking a little sparse as well. If you can propagate some of the stems into the pot, it would probably look a lot fuller. I would check the root ball first, and repot if necessary. You should post before and after shots once she’s fluffy again! I’d love to see her shine. ✨ 😁
@Imissmydeaddog I love her!
@NotablePipevine you can also take some of the longer bits with nodes and place the node side down in soil, it’ll regrow from the node. It could look sparse for awhile but it’ll fill out. I love pothos for their heartiness and diversity.
I’ve lived in the Okeechobee area and I can tell you firsthand the reason why it’s not doing well is it’s way too high of humidity and heat. That’s why it’s becoming legging dropping off leaves from accumulating too much water. Pathos are from rainforest settings and can’t take the high heat with humidity.
If it’s outside, it’s basically being steamed like spinach or broccoli. If you lived in a different climate, I would suggest different advice but within Central Florida without an ocean breeze, I would suggest you bring it inside.β™₯️
@Imissmydeaddog love her!!
