2” pot
Last watered 2 weeks ago
If you recently repotted it and went up in pot size it may just be focusing on growing new roots. Those pots look pretty big for those plants so they're probably just doing all their growing under the dirt where you can't see it.
@Planthoader I also agree with @tattedscientist. The pots are a bit big for your plant. I would down size it to half of what you have now and then you may start seeing new growth in a few weeks.
Dang it!! I just deleted my comment. 🤦‍♀️
Let me try again:

Good morning, Catherine! I love the names of your plants. 😁

Pothos like to have the soil dry out between waterings. They don't need to have the soil consistently moist. 

When the soil dries out between waterings, the roots go into survival-mode and they start to stretch out looking for moisture.

I believe the first plant is a Global Green. It's a #wishlistplant of mine. I'm not sure if they grow more slowly than a more common Golden Pothos.

I would not repot them at this time, I would just leaf them alone and allow the soil to dry out before watering again. You can "snooze" the plant if the soil hasn't properly dried out if Greg is telling you to water the plants.
@tattedscientist is right about the roots establishing if the plants were just recently potted.

Also, something that helps me to be more patient with my plants is something I read about another plant:

The first year, they sleep. The second year, they creep. The third year, they leap!

I know Pothos don't take that long to grow, but when they're acclimating to a new spot, it can take a while for you to see new growth.  (:

Keep us posted!
@sarahsalith I have no patience 😆!! I’ll fluff up the dirt and try that. The only potting soil I can find down here is miracle grow ugh! Right now can’t even find perlite either
