Propagating pothos is easy, and fast!

All you need:

Jar or container to hold water

How to do it

Cut pothos at the brown or black node, you want to keep this with the cutting. This is where the roots will grow out of. Place the cutting in water.

You can fertilize the water if you want a faster process. Wait between a week and a month, and then pop the cuttings out and place them in soil. Make sure to keep the soil extra moist for about a week after planting the cuttings.

how to handle root rot

the jungle in my room

Before we start, let’s examine what root rot is
Pretty much the main cause of root rot on a indoor plant is over-watering. If you water too much, the soil won’t be able to absorb any water; leaving your plant basically sitting in a puddle of water. Of course leaving the roots to break down and rot. Once this happens, those rotted roots are pretty much done for. So how do we save the plant?

How to save a plant from root rot:
-The first thing you want to do is expose the roots by taking all the dirt off of them. To do this; take a hose or anything else that does the job of a hose, and wash the dirt off the roots. The only thing you should see is the plant, and the roots.
-Next thing you want to do is; cut every affected root of of the root ball. (A rotted root looks dark brown, and slimey, rather than a healthy root looking white & sometimes light brown and firm.)
-After you cut all the brown, rotted roots off, rinse the plant one more time with a hose.
-Then place roots in a solution of 50% hydrogen peroxide, and 50% water for about 40 minutes.
-Then place in a new pot with new soil. (you don’t want any of the old, affected soil) (In fact throw that old soil away.)
-Than water once every 5 days
-And Now you have a healthy plant!
