We’ve had this golden pothos for a couple of years at the back of our room which doesn’t get much light and some of the vines reverted to the non-variegated form

Since then I’ve learned that variegated pothos needs higher light but I also wanted to keep the vines without chopping them up into node cuttings. Would it be possible to cut the long vines from the parent and root/repot them whole? I’ve tried air layering without stripping the outer layer but no roots formed after several months.

I really want to move the variegated portion to a much brighter area as it has had very little growth here but keep the vines in their current location.

    I’ve done it successfully, they grow new roots in water in about 6-8 weeks, then into a new pot!

      They will live in water for a long time as well…

          Depending on the time of year and other factors they will also put out air roots and even without the air roots you can clone it straight into dirt during spring and summer.

    Yes, you can root any length cutting. Longer cuttings will generally do better as well.

    It’s very hard to kill a golden pothos. Just cut it up and throw it in dirt, or throw it in a bowl of water for a week or a year, it really doesn’t care. The plants don’t die
