Growing Pothos Underwater

  • Yayınlanma Tarihi:  1 yıl önce
  • May 4th, 2017 A friend gives me a cutting of a Pothos plant. I trimmed it further, making 2 cuttings with 2 leaves each. Put them in cups filled with dechlorinated water. May 11th, 2017 A root grows in the first week. May 14th, 2017 The root grows longer. Notice that the root grows from a bud. The other cutting remains rootless. I trim the stem of the rootless cutting to lower the buds underwater. The cutting with a root goes to a new nursery. June 5th, 2017 In the past 3 weeks, new leaves grow on both plants. And roots grow strong on both plants. June 13th, 2017 Pothos grows very fast. I added newborn guppies to one nursery. I submerged most leaves of this plant. Here a new root and a new leaf are growing underwater. Only 1 leaf is above the water. August 11th, 2017 More leaves grow on the Pothos kept above water. The plant with 1 leaf above water grows slower. I want to check if this Pothos can grow submerged fully underwater. Cut the plant in two parts. Each part has roots. The cutting with 5 leaves goes back to the same nursery. This time, the whole plant is fully submerged underwater. August 17th, 2017 The plant I keep above the water grows very fast. I trim the newest leaf with a sprout. Let's see if this cutting will grow roots. Dip the cutting in water. August 23rd, 2017 The leaf on the last cutting got some brownish discoloration. And a new root started growing. September 9th, 2017 The plant above water has healthy leaves and well developed roots. There are many secondary roots. One leaf of the plant that grows underwater has a hole. Otherwise the plant looks healthy. Though, it did not grow noticeably. Here you can see a new root grows. November 6th, 2017 Here you can see a female guppy nibbles on algae that has grown on the leaves of pothos. I cultivate algae in all my aquariums Here you can see an underwater (fast growing) land moss The Pothos on the other hand grows very slow underwater. December 4th, 2017 I cut off a wilted leaf from the plant that grows above water. The underwater plant is unchanged. March 22nd, 2018 I cut off another wilted leaf from the plant that grows above water. I made a cutting with 2 leaves and a sprout of a new leaf. The new cutting goes on top of my HD aquarium to grow roots. March 25th, 2018 A new leaf grows on the underwater Pothos! The Pothos grows underwater at the same slow pace as Peace lily plants - without any maintenance Have fun and happy plants :) Blog: More fun on my website Views as Money:

    Does this require non-chlorinated water only? Great English and helpful video, new subscriber. Thank you! 👍

    the submerged pothos lasted quite a while! how long did it survive? Did it die? why did the algae only appear in the submerged pothos?

    Have you tried with dracaena deremensis? I am giving testing this right now and I am not too sure about my rate of success to say the least.

    Don't they need aeration? No oxygen, no life.

    Many malls grow pothos and you could ask for some cuttings - these plants are regularly trimmed - I've seen 6 - 7 foot long cuttings, 2-3 feet long usual size, better than the cuttings just going into the garbage, most malls etc. don't bother composting plant cuttings. What a waste !

    Hm. I got some pothos cheap from the grocery store and was excited, but now I'm not sure... It appears I have a different pothos specie, not vining type. I put a whole plant in the tank and it's doing fine so far, and also pulled out one rooted stem from the rest and put that in, roots only and no soil. It's doing okay so far as well. I guess time will tell.

    hey i was wondering if the pothos roots add oxygen into the tank? which would save me from getting an air pump. i just set up my tank and have my pothos clones growing in the top. Roots/stem in water 3 leaves under water and the rest of plant above the tank. let me know please and thanks
