A few weeks ago I shared on IG Reels How I Propagate a Pothos Plant in WaterLast week I shared on my IG stories, how I pot my rooted Pothos plant. Being a new plant mom has been such a rewarding feeling for me. I've learned so much about being a plant mom along the way. Below, I'm sharing how to  Propagate a Pothos Plant in Water. 

How to Propagate a Pothos Plant in Water 

Materials Needed 

  • Water
  • Gardening Sheers
  • Clear container 


Step 1:

Make snips directly below the lowest leaf node. Nodes are those tiny brown bumps on the stem that are the key to growing new roots.

Step 2:

You’ll need a stem with at least two leaves to root your plant and you’ll want to remove the leaf that is closest to the stem. (Your new roots will form from the node.)

Step 3: 

Place Cuttings in Water: Fill a clear glass container submerge cuttings into water. Place the cuttings indoors near a window, in indirect sunlight. Refresh water every 1 to 2 weeks.

Continue once you have roots...

Step 4: 

Once the cuttings have at least one inch of roots transplant into the soil. 

Step 5:

Select a potting container with proper drainage holes. I prefer to use terracotta pots.

Step 6:

Place the cuttings around the pot edges and add more soil to keep the cuttings in place. Add more cuttings to the middle and add soil as needed. Water your new pothos plant until water runs out of the bottom of the pot.

Step 7: 

Place your new pothos in an area where it will get adequate light. Fertilize once a month.
