Our how to  propagate pothos guide will discuss the best methods with easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions.

Materials You Will Need

– Sharp pair of scissors or pruning shears; – Small glass or jar (if propagating in water); – Pot with drainage holes; – Chunky soil mix is made from fresh potting soil, perlite, and coco coir.

When to Propagate Pothos

You can propagate pothos all year round. However, for best results, try propagating pothos in spring and summer when the plant is actively growing. This is because Pothos cuttings grow roots faster during the brighter, warmer months and will root slower in winter.

How Many Pothos Cuttings Do You Need?

To make a bushy pothos plant, you will need at least 3-4 cuttings per pot. For a 6-inch pot, five cuttings should be enough. This will give the roots space to develop and give the pothos a fuller look.

How to Cut the  Pothos Vine for Propagation

Start by untangling your  pothos plant, and pick 3-4 of  the longest vines for propagation. Each vine should have at least 6-7 leaves.
