Silver Satin Pothos likes bright, indirect light year round. Harsh, direct sunlight will scorch the leaves, while too little light will cause the leaves to lose their variegation. Water your Pothos enough to keep the soil moist, but not wet or saturated. It’s best to water when the top inch of the soil is dry.
Cut through the stem 1/4 inch above a leaf scar using a clean knife or scissors. The pothos sends out new stems at scars beneath a cutting point, resulting in a fuller, shorter plant. You can cut back the stems as far as necessary to maintain the desired size.
Subsequently, question is, when should I repot silver pothos? Container Size A pot depth of 10 inches supplies enough room for the plant to grow. Only move the pothos to a larger pot if the roots begin blocking the drainage holes or if the plant starts to lift from the soil. Spring, during active growth, is the best time for repotting.
Just so, how do you take care of a Scindapsus plant?

Where do I cut my pothos?
Cut 4-inch stem sections with at least three healthy leaves from the parent pothos using a clean, sharp knife or pruner. Make the cut just below a root node. The root nodes are little brown bumps protruding from the stem of the pothos. Remove leaves from the bottom 1 to 2 inches of the cuttings.
How do you fix a pothos leggy?
You can’t do any damage by pruning a stem all the way back to within a couple of inches of the soil. Pruning is a great (and only) way to rejuvenate a leggy vining plant.
