How do you cut pothos so it keeps growing?
To prune, use a sharp, clean pair of scissors or secateurs to make a cut just below a node. If your goal is to encourage bushy growth, prune close to the crown to create lots of shorter stems from which new leaves will emerge. If you want to shorten up a long vine, snip it off wherever you prefer.
Why isn’t my pothos growing after cutting?
Pothos likes warms temperatures to grow, so if you’re keeping your cuttings too cold, it will hinder root growth! Aim to keep your cuttings above 68F (20C) for best results, but make sure there is still some light present!
Does cutting pothos encourage growth?
Pruning pothos plants is one of the best ways to encourage new, healthy growth on the plant, so trimming won’t mean that your plant is stunted forever. Just make sure that you prune properly, cutting shortly above a growth node, to give it the best chance possible.
