Watering My New Golden Pothos

Anonymous added on August 6, 2011 | Answered

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.
