Scorched Pothos. =(

CyanoticJuly 23, 2013

Hi everyone!

Basically, this story can be summed up by saying that I'm a forgetful dimwit sometimes. I had taken quite a few pothos cuttings from one of the plants in my office. I brought them home, potted them, watered them, and left them outside overnight to dry out a bit, as I always do when I repot.

Well, this morning, I meant to bring them inside, but I COMPLETELY forgot. =( They were outside, in direct, intense New Mexico sunlight and heat during the hottest part of the day. Now they are pretty severely sunscorched. =( There's brown, thin spots on most of the leaves. There's a lot of green left, but quite a bit of sun damage.

Will they survive? Is there anything I can do to help them? I already brought them inside, and rewatered them (they were parched). I'm nervous about this happening with a new, unestablished cutting. =(

Thanks everyone!

Won't take long to find out. It depends on how thorough the "cooking" was. All day in direct sun, low humidity and high air temperature aren't listed anywhere amongst that plant's preferences. You can only wait and see.
