  • Thanks Tetley for reply. I live in india and here the temp is arond 25-30 degree celcius. So the atmosphere is still not that cold. So do u still think that this pothos is feeling the cold. Other pothos are going normal. Also i have seen videos that whenever leaves are curling or drooping then that is the sign of underwatering. Please guide.?

  • What soil have you got it in, it looks quite solid?

    Hi Alkesh - I agree with Chrissy. It looks like very heavy soil in your pot - the roots need to breathe air as well as drink.
    You need to use compost ('potting compost' in the UK), not soil for your plant to do well.
    Once you have your plant in some compost, it will need a feed now and then.
    Pothos doesn't like direct sunlight, so keep it somewhere with good light but not direct sunlight.
    In India I'm sure it's warm enough to grow very happily outdoors.

  • Thanks crissy, i have used Mainly riverbed soil, little normal soil and menure.

  • Hi tetley, i water it when i feel that the top of soil is dry by touching the top soil. There are six holes below and it drains well. 

  • It is cow dung menure.

  • No, purchased from shop.

    I live in Brighton, UK and have my silver pothos in a pot hanging near a window - a bright spot but no direct sunlight.  About half of the leaves have always curled. I mist it occasionally and it does grow, but even new leaves curl.  I used a good-quality houseplant compost and filtered water.
    Apparently the photo function on this website is not working.
