    Hi everyone,

    I've got a badly neglected Pothos here that I'd like to "repair".

    As you can see from the photo, it's attached by only a single stem. The stem is quite long and starting to feel weak and flimsy where it meets the soil.

    What would be the best way to repair this plant so that I can get it standing more upright and get it growing into something more stable?

    I realize Pothos are easily propagated. I'd like to avoid using water only as I've read it produces only weak roots which may not root properly once put into soil.

    Can I just cut the current stem down to a couple of inches, apply rooting powder and then stick it in the soil and expect it to root with the current number of leaves that are on it? Or would it be better to divide it up and plant separate segments?
