I learned from Craig Milran on Instagram and through the internet that by potting your pothos with a moss pole, you give the plant the upright structure it needs (and would have in nature) to encourage larger mature leaves, as opposed to the smaller leaves produced on an unsupported plant that puts it in "trail and find light" mode. Also helps with humidity - something I'm constantly fighting with here in Arizona.
My Golden Pothos is my first try with a moss pole. I repotted the freshly separated sections in a circle around the well-saturated pole, then adhered some of the inner stalks to the moss pole using plant Velcro in my new beautiful pot from @potey (now I want all my pots to be cylindrical 😭) it was really easy!
Everything I mentioned is available in my Plant Mama list on Amazon! (https://amzn.to/351SDh5)
I have always loved plants; I have awesome memories of caring for grafted cacti and Venus fly traps and gardening with my late stepmom (with varied success in all areas).
In 2019, I got deeply into plants along with what seemed like the entire internet. I turned to plants in response to the stressors of moving in with my partner and having a very rough time together, and the lack of stimuli I was experiencing in all of my worlds. Raising and caring for plants gives me a sense of accomplishment and usefulness that I self-prescribed to soothe the strain of my life this year.
In 7 months, I have gone from 0 to 28 plants under my care! I realized that I spend a hell of a lot of time, energy, and money tending to my leaf babies, but I never feel overworked or overwhelmed dealing with them the same way other things in life can take it out of me. Plant-keeping is one of my purest sources of happiness - check out my reasons and feel free to use one (or more) of them to justify a trip to your local plant store for an impromptu adoption of a leaf baby!
