Lighting and Humidity Conditions For Pothos
Pothos plants (Pothos Epipremnum Aureum) are one of the most popular indoor plants loved for their low maintenance care regimen. These trailing plants do best in a bright indirect light and high humidity levels. However, because these houseplants are so easy going, they can also adapt to a wide range of light conditions and humidity levels. Pothos can tolerate low light better than most tropical plants. It is important to note that the lower the light, the less variegation your plant will have.
Watering Your Pothos Plant
Depending on the temperatures, and plant placement your plants watering needs will vary. As one of the easiest houseplants to grow, they are not too needy when it comes to water and prefer to dry out between waterings. As a fairly drought tolerant plant, Pothos are great for plant parents that sometimes forget to water as they will wilt when dry, but the heart-shaped leaves will perk right back up after receiving a drink.
Best Pothos Soil
As with most indoor houseplants, Pothos enjoy a well draining potting soil and a pot with drainage holes. This step in your Pothos plant care regimen is crucial in protecting your plant from root rot. No plant wants to be constantly sitting in a pot full of water because, just like humans, they need to breathe.

Propagating Pothos Plants
An added and heavily practiced benefit of Pothos plants, other than their easy care and rapid growth rate, is their ability to be multiplied through the process of propagation. These plants are one of the most heavily propagated plants, mainly because they regenerate and grow roots so quickly!
There are various methods of propagation, but most popular is the process of water propagation. To propagate your Pothos plant, simply take a stem cutting from your plant that includes one to two leaves and a node.
Place your Pothos cutting in a clear container with water and place in an area that receives bright indirect light. You can add rooting powder to your propagating plant promote root growth.
The only step left is to wait for your baby cutting to grow roots, and this won't take long. Check back on your cutting in a few weeks to see roots sprouting.
