Pothos Plants

pothos rooted in water

Zone 8-9 | kitty63 added on October 18, 2015 | Answered

I have a pothos rooted in water. The stem is long with leaves on the end. Can I plant the roots? Will I get more shoots from the roots or will it continue to grow from the original stem? Not sure what to do with it now that it has become so long.

You can plant the cutting now that it has roots, but if it is long and leggy I would trim it back to about 6 inches in length.
You can root the section that you cut off also!
