Why do I need to prune my Pothos?

Pothos Golden Pruning Question
Question: Why do I need to prune my Pothos?
Answer: Have you ever seen a Pothos that has never been pruned? It has two or three runners that just go on and on with no fullness in the center of the plant. Granted, you may like that look, but it is not the best for the health and longevity of the plant. You should cut the runners about one node from the top of the soil. Don’t prune at the end of the runner, as that is where the new growth will start. And you want to prune about 1/3 of the plant at a time. As the new growth starts, prune again. Remember that wherever you prune a plant is where the new growth will begin. If you keep this up (and add a little fertilizer), you will have a beautiful FULL plant again. And those runners that you cut?? Put them in water. Once they begin rooting, you can put them in soil and you have yourself a new plant!
