'Pearls and Jade' Pothos Cutting
The 'Pearls and Jade' Pothos is a cultivar of Epipremnum aureum with a thick, waxy leaf with bright green and white coloration. Pothos plants are generous growers and are fantastic first plants to propagate from cuttings.
When you receive your pothos cutting, remove it from the packaging immediately.
Un-rooted cuttings should be placed in a glass or jar of water as soon as possible. Make sure that nodes (the spot where the leaf meets the stem and aerial roots form) are below the level of the water, and place in bright, indirect light. Change and refresh water 2-3 times per week.
Within the next several weeks, you will see new root growth beginning from the node. Allow roots to become several inches long and well established before transferring to well drained potting soil. This may take anywhere from several weeks to several months depending on season, conditions, and what type of plant you are propagating.
Rooted cuttings may be planted into soil immediately, or may live happily in water for several weeks.
You may use clean, sharp scissors to divide your cutting into multiple pieces if you wish. Just make sure each section has viable nodes that can access the water.
CARE + MAINTENANCE
Light + temperature
Pothos thrive in bright, indirect light, although they are somewhat low-light tolerant. If light conditions are too low they will grow more slowly and may lose some variegation.
Maintain indoor temperatures of 65-85° F
Once potted, pothos like their soil to dry out a bit between watering.These plants are quite tolerant of an underwater; the leaves should spring right back up again if left unwatered for too long a stretch.
Pothos are beautiful, but toxic to cats and dogs. Please contact your veterinarian if you suspect a pet has ingested any part of the plant.
While pothos are a classic hanging plant with beautiful trailing vines, it is equally at home on a shelf or counter top.
Occasional pruning with clean, sharp scissors may help plants stay full and vigorous. As a bonus, these cuttings may also be propagated!
Why are leaves on my pothos turning yellow?
It is normal for older leaves on each vine to turn yellow and fall off occasionally, typically one at a time. If many leaves turn yellow at once or stems close to the soil feel soft, your pothos has likely been overwatered.
My pothos has long sections with no leaves, how do I fix it?
Since it is normal for older leaves to slowly fall off, long sections of bare vine may develop over time. New leaves will not grow on these sections. You may choose to prune these bare vines back, either close to the soil or just above the lowest remaining leaf. If the new sections of the vine have healthy leaves, you can always place the cutting in water to propagate and start a new plant, or pot it back in to your pothos to make the crown full and lush again.
