    Default Pothos growth journal.

    About a week ago I acquired a small cutting of Pothos and placed it with its stalk under the water level and the leaves protruding from the tank.



    After a week of having practically no light (I was away, so lights off). Two roots have formed for the stalk, one larger one on the left, and a smaller one on the right hand water level.



    So I thought I'd make a journal to track to growth! I'm hoping to train it up the wall behind the tank and make a nice feature in my bedroom

    Has anyone else grown Pothos like this? There's a massive thread on Monsterfish Keepers that has heaps of info on it.

    I haven't, but I've read about it! Apparently it grows really well in a hang on back filter. I'd love to grow some in future! Maybe even from a cutting some day

    I 'discretely' acquired my cutting from one of the planters in a shopping centre!

    That's awesome! I wouldn't be sure which kind to get!

    Update time.

    Painfully slow growing. Only put out one new leaf since I put it in there! The roots have gone crazy this last couple of weeks though!



    Hopefully the leaf growth picks up.
