Pothos indoor plant.
I watered my pothos plant. The next day it looked like yeast in the pot bottom. It has a smell like wet yeast. I moved the plant outside. I have had pothos for quite some time and have never seen anything like this. Any ideas?

It most certainly could be yeast. This is usually not a problem. Do you collect your water from a source which could be carrying the bacteria? An A/C condensation pipe would be high in bacterial yeast, as can be a kitchen near cooking equipment.
Fortunately, this is able to be cured. Just add wettable sulfur to the soil, and spray with neem oil.
