Why is my pothos black?
Like humans, the leaf tissues are sensitive to scorching direct sunlight and can burn if left there for too long. The areas where the sun hits the leaves will start to turn brown and ultimately black as they die off. Burned Pothos leaves will unfortunately never recover.
When pothos leaves turn black?
Pothos leaves blacken due to too much or too little water, temperature changes, overexposure to light, pests or disease, and over-fertilizing. This may be remedied by regulating the amount of water, relocating your plants in partially lit and humid areas, applying pesticides, and decreasing fertilizer use.
How do you fix black pothos leaves?
Throw away the old soil, and rinse the roots with a mix of 1-part 3% hydrogen peroxide and two parts water. Repot the pothos in a fresh, well-draining soil mix, and water moderately for the next couple of weeks. Also, avoid using the same container for bottom-watering your pothos plants.
