    Hey guys,

    So on Monday, I noticed that 2 leaves from my pothos plant went black over night...I had no idea why, the soil was moist because I had watered them the weeek before. So I cut the leaves out and am currently trying to propagate them to see if they can be saved. I also changed the soil and watered the plant from the bottom. The plant took all the water. Although, the top part doesn’t look wet though so I’m not sure if I should still add more water from the bottom so that it can reach the top.. also , today, I noticed 2 of the leaves from that same branch starting to go black so I cut off the branch completely and added them to the propagation batch. I’ve also noticed another leave Turning black a bit...I don’t know what this is happening. Any ideas ??

    Any updates? This is usually a tough plant.

    Welcome to the Forum!

    Had the blackened leaves been touching a cold windowpane?

    Suggest dead leaves instead be discarded.
