Watering a Pothos

Anonymous added on October 22, 2016 | Answered

I am considering getting a pothos. However, we take a lot of trips and are often gone for one month. Is it possible to leave this plant without water for a month? Thank you

A Pothos is quite easy to grow and actually prefers a drier soil. You could most likely water the plant before you leave and it would be fine for a few weeks at a time.
A month may be a bit long to go for water.
Succulent plants may be a good option for you. A Jade plant can also go quite a bit of time in between watering.
