Mixed leaves!
#GoldenPothos
I have always done well with these, Sol is trailing at 20 feet long, my propogated ones with new growth. But dexter here is a mixed bag! All of a sudden some leaves are perked up, others drooped down. Well watered, and its all same cuttings which are both perky and droopy! Thoughts?
2ft to light, direct
8” pot with drainage
Last watered 14 hours ago

It looks fine to me, but they can be rather dramatic about watering habits... I suggest giving it a thorough soak/bottom watering. Let the soil dry out completely between waterings as well. They get a bit droopy and sad looking when thirsty, but perk up within a couple hours of being watered. (:
Honestly from the picture the plant looks pretty healthy, the drooping leaves could be just the plant starting to vine but I will say I have a sensitive golden pathos and he gets mad when I don't spread the water over the entire pot rather than just put in one location lol. He's dramatic πŸ˜‚
@WickedValkyrie @jazzyjess thanks you both! I have 2 others who just grew upward so this was new for me. Glad that its likely just how these vines grow but I will certainly try a good soak/bottom water for next watering. All my plants are drama queens πŸ‘Έ haha
The vines will grow down unless you steak them up (etc), but the leaves should still be somewhat "upward". These are my two biggest. They're 2-3 years old. (:
@WickedValkyrie how beautiful! Mine also is held up with command hooks, but there's been long stems with leaf thinking due to heat/no light. But it wraps around the room!
**thinning haha
@pettiteplants I love it! (:
