How to Make a Pothos Look Bushier: Use These 4 Methods



If you have a leggy pothos plant and don’t want to give it a drastic trim, here are four methods to provide it with a fuller, bushier look.

Propagate Cuttings in the Same Pot

Take a few pothos cuttings, then simply plant them in the same pot as the mother plant. You don’t even need to root them in water first. 


Grow Two Plants in One Pot

If you have two leggy pothos plants, you can plant them in the same pot to achieve a fuller look. Or, if you have a pothos plant that’s lost some leaves from the top, you can plant a younger, smaller pothos next to it to fill in the bald spots.


Loop the Long Vines Around the Pot

This is a great way to fix a pothos plant that’s only growing on one side or a plant with only one very long stem. 


Coil and Pin the Vines on Top of the  Soil

You can use this method to fix pothos with long vines and no leaves. Basically, it is a form of air layering, a propagation method that encourages new root and leaf growth without cutting the stems from the mother plant.
