Will my Pothos Recover?
I have pothos plant that my mom had sent to school on my first day of teaching 5 years ago. Miraculously I (and my students) have managed not to kill it. I brought it home for the summer to repot it, since its hasn't really grown much. It has pretty mush always had two small vines with about 3-4 leaves and thats it. It's never grown crazy big. I've never had to trim it or anything. It is my understanding that these plants can really take off, but mine never did. I repotted it 2 years ago, since it was in a tiny pot and it was root locked. when I repotted it this time, there were hardly any roots at all, but the vines themselves were still green and healthy looking.
Here's where I'm concerned. When I repotted it, it was in a wilty state. I used fresh soil, and then watered it to draining and put it outside. I didn't read the directions until afterward, but it it was in direct sun, super hot temperatures, and I think I overwatered it to compensate for the heat and sun. I noticed today that the uppermost leaves are starting to turn brown and getting thin. I quickly brought it inside and out of the direct blazing sun. I check some videos online about clipping for propagation techniques. I clipped the two healthiest looking leaves and put them in the soil.
Do you think that it will come back? Once those leaves start to turn brown, is it doomed? I'm really worried, because I really love this little plant. I want it to thrive and I can't believe I'm killing an un-killable plant!
