How To Propagate Snow Queen Pothos: A Step-By-Step Guide

What is Snow Queen Pothos?

Snow Queen Pothos (Epipremnum aureum) is a type of tropical vining plant from Southeast Asia. It has long, trailing stems with heart-shaped leaves that can range in color from light or bright green to silvery blue. This variety of pothos is one of the most popular houseplants and its striking foliage makes it an eye-catching addition to any home.

Propagating Snow Queen Pothos

Propagating your Snow Queen Pothos can be done through stem cuttings or leaf cuttings. Both methods are relatively easy and will provide you with multiple plants in no time at all!

Stem Cuttings

When propagating via stem cuttings, select healthy stems that have at least two sets of leaves each (the more nodes, the better). Using sharp scissors or pruning shears, make clean cuts just below one node closer to the top portion of the stem. Trim away any leaves on the lower half so you’re left with only 2–4 inches (5–10 cm) of bare stem below each cutting node. Dip this end into root hormone powder if desired for faster rooting and then place them into well-draining potting soil; insert 1–2 stakes beside each cutting for support as they grow taller. Keep your newly planted cuttings in indirect sunlight and water when necessary but avoid overwatering; mist occasionally for added humidity until roots begin emerging from drainage holes at which point you may move them outdoors if desired but keep out of direct sun exposure until established (about 4 weeks).

Leaf Cuttings

Leaf propagation is another great way to propagate your Snow Queen Pothos! Simply remove a healthy leaf off its main stem near either side by twisting gently while pulling down rather than up on the leaf itself since this could cause damage to other nearby leaves in a cluster growth pattern situation; dip this section into root hormone powder before inserting it horizontally into moist soil about ½ inch deep – avoid burying too much as this could lead to rot issues due to lack of oxygen reaching those buried portions beneath surface level moisture content areas within potting mediums – after planting give enough water so that soil remains evenly damp throughout entire depth levels not just surface areas above where actual roots will form over time but avoid saturations as these can prevent oxygen transfer/circulation around roots causing rotting problems instead once again leading back toward possible death situations unfortunately unless caught early enough… once rooted keep plants evenly dampened yet never saturated & equally exposed indirectly lit sunny windowsills during daytimes hours indoors or slightly shadier outdoor settings depending upon climate zones present wherever located – always ensure adequate air flow between foliage surfaces topside regions especially during warmer Summer months ahead approaching quickly already now soon here soon very shortly… enjoy!! 🙂
