Tiny Pothos root bound?
I've had a pothos for years that hasn't been growing great lately. I have been convinced that it was in too big a pot (3 quarts) so today I took it out to put it in a smaller one but found that it was pretty root bound. The roots aren't as tight as they could be but they filled the pot completely and held the soil well.
Now I have no idea what to do because all of the pothos plants I've seen growing elsewhere that are much larger than mine are in really small pots. So I don't understand how my tiny pothos with just a few long vines could be root bound?
Right now the pothos is sitting in water-I'm trying to loosen up the soil so I can fit it into a smaller pot. Should I plant it in a smaller pot or does it need a larger one?
