I have a lemon lime pathos and it gets black spots on it. Can anyone help me?

Over-watering is one of the most common reasons for the appearance of brown and black spots on pothos leaves. When there's excess water in the potted soil, the roots of the pothos plant begins to rot and die. This, in turn, can cause the leaves to wilt and develop black and brown spots along the edges.

Are the black spots mushy? I am assuming it’s from overwatering and not a disease.
I’ll cut back on the water. The soil gets really dry between watering and it kind of freaks me out but now I have Greg hopefully it will be more consistent. Thank you.
This looks like edema. Like the others said cut back on the water. It’s always better to under water than over, easier for the plant to come back from. The plant will also tell you when thirsty by starting to droop and the leaves curling. Don’t panic, just give a thorough drink at that point and she’ll perk back up.
@GardenWitch thank you!
@KikiGoldblatt thank you.
I think Greg usually helps with people who forget to water their plant. So if Greg tells you to water your plant when the top 1-2 inches is still moist, I'd say let it dry out a bit more. Pothos are very resistant plants :))
