 7 Ways: How to Get Pothos to Trail Faster

Your Pothos Well-Hydrated

To grow and thrive, all plants require ample amounts of water. When you give your Pothos too little water, its leaves may curl, turn yellow, and eventually stop growing.

When you place your Pothos in low light conditions, it will not be able to create enough energy to grow well. This is why you often see low variegation, small new leaves, and leggy stems on Pothos in dark corners.


Encourage Trailing With Pruning
