Why are my pothos leaves turning brown?
Then, why are the tips of my pothos leaves turning brown?
Watering. Over-watering a pothos plant may result in brown spots on the leaves, especially if the soil is heavy and dense. When soil becomes waterlogged, oxygen cannot reach the roots, which stresses the plant and prevents it from taking up water and nutrients. As a result, brown spots may appear on the foliage.
Also Know, how often do you water a pothos plant? You need to water your pothos only if the pot/planter has been completely dry, but a bit neglect won't hurt the plant much. Depending where you live, for indoor plant this might be somewhere between 3–7 days. Outdoor plant need a bit more water until it is established (you can water it every 2–4 days).
Consequently, how do you tell if pothos is dying?
If the leaves are limp, but still green, and the soil is dry, the plant probably needs water. If the leaves are yellow, you've probably over-watered the plant. Golden pothos does not like wet roots and needs the soil to dry out between waterings. Check the stems and roots for dark, soft spots.
Can you cut brown tips off plants?
Yes, but leave just a little bit of brown on each leaf to avoid stressing the plant. If it's brown and dry, then cut the whole leaf, but not too far from the main branch so that it will grow a new leaf. If it still green but just the tip is brown, then use a sharp pair of scissors to just trim the edges.
