Pothos plants are tropical and require regular watering. The soil should be well-draining to help avoid overwatering. You can keep the soil moist but should ensure it isn’t soggy. These plants are susceptible to root rot if they are overwatered.
An overwatered pothos will have several telltale signs of something wrong, including limp yellowing or browning leaves, brown spots or water blisters on the leaf’s foliage, soggy soil, and even fungal problems.
- Soggy Soil - Yellowing Leaves - Brown Leaves - Soft or “Limp” Leaves - Shriveled and Mushy Appearance - Curling Leaves - Water Blister - Brown Spots
The most effective next step is to replant it in new soil. This will enable your plant’s roots to air out and potentially revive your plant. Whether or not you can save your plant depends on how much of the root system has been impacted by root rot.
