Epipremnum aureum, commonly known as Pothos is one of the easiest plants to grow and propagate. It is also a perfect plant to share with friends and beginner plant enthusiasts. Recently, I decided it was time to give my Pothos a friendly trim and propagate by cutting.

Here are your simple step-by-step instructions on Pothos propagation:

  1. With clean scissors make a straight cut under a leaf node of the pothos vine you want to propagate.
  2. You can propagate your vine by removing the bottom few leaves and planing the cut end in water or soil. You can also cut each leaf, leaving the stem or node in tact. This is where you will get your new roots.
  3. Place your cuttings in moist soil and water when top couple inches are dry or stick your cuttings in water and watch for new roots.
  4. If propagating in water, when your roots are about 1.5 to 2 inches, remove from water and place in soil.
  5. If propagating straight in soil, keep your Pothos in bright light and keep the soil evenly moist, never soggy.
