Planting pothos in the ground. How much area does it need for roots? Also, will the roots harm pipes?
Pothos is pretty much the kind of plant that will make its way whatever the conditions. Don't even concern yourself with room for roots - pothos will grow according to whatever room it has, and it doesn't need much to start growing up the trees. The one thing it doesn't like is too much sun. If the spot is too bright, its roots will set off on their own search for a more hospitable spot. I've never heard of pothos roots damaging pipes, because the roots are pretty much on the surface. However, any plant's roots have the capability to "damage" pipes if the pipes are where the roots can reach them.
