Pothos center turning brown; vines are fine.
Hi, I have pothos hanging in a window that gets indirect light. The center of the plant (the area directly above the soil) is browning and dying. The leaves just fall right off when I touch them. The hanging vines, however, are sturdy with no signs of problems. I recently checked the roots for rot and there is none. I water when the top inch or two of soil are dry and the pot has drainage. The plant is still growing steadily, but it is just losing volume at the base/center. Is there something wrong? Could I be doing something better? Or is that normal for the plant to lose volume at the base? Thank you!

The center of the plant may have died out from lack of light or even can be due to watering down the center of the plant.
This might be a time to propagate come new plants from the long tendrils.
