I would like to know what indoor plants I can get that are very easy to grow. I have a nice Pothos at the moment, although I gather it needs to be moved out of direct sun (yellowing leaves). It did very well in the lower light of my old apt. Is there something foolproof that likes lots of direct sun that I can't kill? And how much water does it need? I let my Pothos (Susan) dry out pretty well before I water.

I live in Sequim, WA and have 3 indoor variegated Pothos plants. All 3 are developing brown spots on all of the leaves. I recently moved up here from CA and had always had Pothos down in CA because they were so easy to take care of, taking abuse and would still live. But these that I have only had since I moved up here less than 6 months are really looking bad. I am trying to let them dry out in between watering. I know I should have it warmer in the house than 60-65 degrees, but I'm going through that time where heat just doesn't agree with me. Anything else I can do to save these poor things other than find a new home for them?
The brown spots are commonly caused by over watering. With the cooler temps, they just do not need as much water. In the circumstances, I would actually recommend waiting till you see some wilting before watering. Then soak the pot in the sink to rehydrate the rootball. Once the brown spots clear up, you can resume watering just when the soil feels dry.
I notice a Hawaiian pothos in the garbage where I worked. It looked healthy, but had these white spots on it. I can't tell what it is or how to take care of it. I would like to take it home with me. Can you please help?
The white spots are likely a fungus, but could be a pest. The fungus can be treated with a fungicide and pests can be treated with a pesticide. I personally like neem oil as it is both a fungicide and a pesticide, so it treats for both at the same time.
I think I just severely over watered my beautiful new golden pothos. I am a novice to plants and had no idea until water was spilling not only at least an inch high onto the saucer, but all over the floor. I could have sworn the soil was soaking in the water quickly, and I was waiting for it to puddle on top, which it never did. Is it too late to save it? And how do I avoid doing this next time? Again, I am a total novice to houseplants and greens in general, so please take that into consideration as to how you word your reply to me.
Always allow plants to dry out some between waterings. You can usually check them by sticking your finger in the soil (about an inch). If it's dry, water. If it's still somewhat moist or wet, leave it alone.

Why are my pothos leaves turning brown and drying out at the tips?
This indicates a watering issue. Either the plant is not getting enough water or there is something affecting the roots that is preventing them from taking up water.
I have fuzzy/furry white patches on my pothos leaves. The plant has large leaves and has always looked very healthy until now. Might have needed water a few days ago (when I watered it today). There are several other houseplants in same room next to it.
It soundslike you may have mealybugs. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/mealybugs-white-residue-on-plants-leaves.htm
I have Scindapsus plant in my room. I purchased this plant last month form IKEA. After I purchased this plant, I shifted this to another big pot. After few days, I've noticed that leaves of the plant started turning black from one edge. Also, the leaves which are new started turning black from one side. What do I do?
This sounds like a watering issue. It can be that you are either under watering or over watering. Water the plant only when the soil is dry to the touch on the top of the soil.
