Pothos N’Joy - Common Problems
My plant is wilting: Pothos are a great companion, they tell you exactly when they need to be watered. If the leaves are starting to droop down, it’s time to water!
The leaves turning yellow: There is a chance your plant is overwatered. Allow the top 2 inches of the soil to dry before watering again. Plants also lose their leaves at the base as they grow older, this is natural.
The tips of my plant turning brown: Browning leaves are a sign of far too much sun or not enough water. Place your plant in a spot with bright indirect light but no direct sun. This will burn the leaves.
Signs of Overwatering: New growth becomes soft and brown and the leaves begin to drop.
Common Pests: Mealybugs, spider mites, and scale.
