@reenasplants 🌿HOW TO MAKE YOUR PLANT VERY FULL🌿 I get a lot of questions about how my golden Pothos looks so full. Since I got this plant as a 4 inch pot, I have constantly been propagating it and putting the cuttings back into the main plant. Doing this ensures that the top of the pot stays busy and full and doesn’t look bare. I do this less often now that the plant is so big but if I notice any bare spots, I will plant in a propagated cutting or two! Do you plant propagation back into the main plant or do you start a whole new plant with them? . . . . indoor jungle houseplants easy plants plant tips plant hacks plant care plant help plant styling propagation plant room #plantcare #plantcaretips #pothos #goldenpothos #climbingplants #variegatedplants ♬ Bounce - Oliver Tree

Pothos Care Tips and Hacks

Plant care might feel overwhelming, especially when your golden pothos isn't growing as expected.

Growing a pothos is typically a simple process, but there might be times when your plant doesn't seem to be doing well.

Here are some tips and hacks inspired by reenasplants and the plant care community:

Potting Mix

The right potting mix can make a significant difference in your plant's health. Golden pothos prefers a well-draining soil mix to prevent waterlogging and root rot.

A blend of peat moss, perlite, and compost creates a light, airy mix that retains moisture while allowing excess water to drain away.


One of the most common mistakes is overwatering. Golden pothos prefers the top inch of its soil to dry out between waterings.

To check, simply stick your finger into the soil. If it's dry up to your first knuckle, it's time to water.


While golden pothos can tolerate low light, it does best in bright, indirect light. Too much direct sunlight can scorch the leaves, causing them to turn yellow or brown.


Even the best potting soil can become depleted of nutrients over time. T

o keep your pothos thriving, feed it with a balanced houseplant fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer).

Always follow the product's instructions to avoid over-fertilizing.


Pruning your golden pothos can stimulate growth and keep it looking full. Trim back any long or leggy vines to maintain the desired shape and size.

These trimmings can be used for propagation, as seen in the video!
