Although the N’joy pothos care process is easy, there are a few things to keep in mind to ensure your plant stays healthy and happy. With a little bit of attention, your Pothos NJoy will thrive for years to come!

Keep the soil moist, but not soggy, by watering the plant when the soil is dry to the touch. And don’t forget to fertilize your pothos plant monthly during the growing season and prune it as needed.
What You’ll Need For Pothos Propagation
Pothos propagation is the process of growing new pothos plants from cuttings. It’s a simple and inexpensive way to fill your home with lush, green plants. Generally, all you need is a cutting from a healthy pothos plant and a pot with moist soil. With a little patience, you can have thriving pothos plants in no time.
However, there are a few things you’ll need to get started when propagating pothos:
How To Propagate N’joy Pothos?
You can propagate N’joy Pothos in various ways. By stem cuttings or by rooting in water, propagating your plants from cuttings will help get the plant started quickly. Here are a few methods that can help you prosper your beautiful pothos plant:
Propagate N’joy Pothos in Water
Propagating Pothos in water is an easy process. All you need to do is cut a 4-6 inch piece of stem from a healthy plant, remove the bottom leaves, and then place the cutting in a glass of water. Make sure to change the water every few days, and after a few weeks, you will start noticing roots beginning to form. Once the pothos roots are 2-3 inches long, the cutting can then be transplanted into potting soil.
Propagate N’joy Pothos in Soil
Pothos are easy to propagate in soil. Almost following the same steps as mentioned above, simply take a cutting from a healthy plant and insert the cutting into moistened soil. Keep the soil moist and warm, and in a few weeks, you should see new sprouts.
Propagate N’Joy Pothos in Potting Mix
The main difference between soil and potting mix is that potting mix is lighter and contains more organic matter. This makes it easier for roots to grow through and results in a healthier plant. It is also sterile and safer for growing plants from cuttings. To propagate pothos in potting mix, follow this step-by-step guide:
- Fill a pot with potting mix and moisten the mix with water.
- Take a stem cutting from a healthy pothos plant.
- Cut the stem at a 45-degree angle, just below a leaf node.
- Remove the leaves from the bottom half of the stem.
- Dip the cut end of the stem in rooting hormone and then insert it into the potting mix.
The pothos Njoy will continue to grow in the potting mix and may sprout new leaves and stems. You will soon notice the roots beginning to grow. You should by then be able to pull the plant out of the potting mix and place it in a new pot.
Propagate N’Joy Pothos from Stem Cuttings
One of the best ways to propagate the Pothos N’Joy plant is from stem cuttings. This will produce plants that are genetically identical to the parent plant. Here is a detailed guide on how to do it successfully supported by some propagation tips to have your own Pothos plant home garden.
Where To Cut Njoy Pothos to Propagate?
You can take cuttings from the tips of the vines just above where the roots are growing, or from any part of the plant that has healthy leaves. If you want to propagate your Pothos, you can also cut the stem into a few pieces, each with at least one leaf attached. These pieces can then be placed in water or soil to grow new plants.
What Size Cuttings Should I Take?
Pothos plants can be propagated by taking cuttings that are 4-6 inches long. The cutting should have at least 2-3 leaves on it, and it is best to take the cutting from a newer growth area of the plant.
Where To Put Pothos Cuttings?
After taking a cutting from the plant, dip it in rooting hormone and then plant it in the pot. Water the cutting well and place it in bright, indirect light. Keep the soil moist but not soggy. The cutting should root within 4-6 weeks.
Another way to do it is by placing the cuttings in a glass of water and changing it every few days. After a few weeks, you will see roots growing from the cuttings. Once the roots are 2-3 inches long you can then move the cuttings to the potting soil.
How To Maintain Pothos Cuttings?
It is vital to maintain healthy pothos cuttings while propagating the plant. To make sure to succeed in your plants’ propagation, keep the cuttings moist and in a humid, well-brightened environment. Also, keep the cutting away from direct sunlight as it may damage and turn the leaves yellow.
When Are The Cuttings Ready To Plant?
A while after propagating your Njoy Pothos’ cuttings either in soil or water, they must be moved into a bigger pot or planted in a garden. The cuttings should be ready to plant when they have roots that are one to two inches long.
Repotting Pothos N’Joy
Pothos don’t need repotting often. Once every 1-2 years is usually enough. You’ll know when your Njoy Pothos is in need of repotting if it becomes pot bound and roots begin growing out of the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot. It’s a good idea to repot the plant every two years. This will ensure your plant doesn’t become rootbound and help it continue to grow.
N’Joy Pothos Problems and Pests
Pothos is one of the most common houseplants, and they’re also one of the easiest to care for. But even the most low-maintenance plants can have problems from time to time. Here are some common problems with Pothos:
If you notice a yellowing of the leaves or brown spots on the edges of the leaves, this could be a sign of a nutrient deficiency. You’ll need to fertilize your plant regularly, especially during spring and summer. You can add a weak dose of fertilizer (1/2 tsp. per gallon of water) to the soil with each watering or place a pebble or small rock on the surface of the potting soil to release nutrients over time.
Too much water can cause the roots to rot and the leaves to yellow and too little water will cause the leaves to wilt and eventually drop off.
Pothos is a very hardy houseplant and problems are rare. However, mealybugs, spider mites, and aphids can be troublesome. If your plant is affected, check the undersides of the leaves for small insects. These pests can be controlled with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
N’joy Pothos is a beautiful, low-maintenance plant that is perfect for anyone looking to add some greenery to their home. The Pothos plant is easy to care for and propagate, making it a great plant for both beginners and experienced gardeners alike.
In short, to propagate N’joy pothos, take a stem cutting with at least two leaves and a node (the place where the leaf meets the stem). Cut the stem at an angle just below a node using a sharp knife or pruning shears. Place the cutting in soil or a glass of water and wait for roots to form. Once roots have formed, you can plant the cutting in a pot filled with moist soil.
If you’re looking for a plant that is both easy to take care of and looks great, Njoy Pothos is the plant for you!
