Q.

How Often Should I Water My Pothos & Diffenbachia?

My husband and I recently bought these plants. We've been watering them about twice a week, but I'm noticing that some of the leaves are turning yellow. Are we overwatering?

Yes, you are likely overwatering. Rather than watering on a schedual, you should be checking on a schedual. Twice a week, check the top of the soil. If the top of the soil is dry to the touch, the plant needs to be watered. If the soil is still damp to the touch on top, then you don't need to water.
