8 Reasons for Pothos Not Growing

Too Little Light

Houseplants like Pothos require sunlight to photosynthesize. Through photosynthesis, plants create energy, which they need to be able to grow new, healthy leaves.



Just like plants need light, they also need ample amounts of water. Water is essential because it delivers nutrients from the soil into the plant, aids photosynthesis, and helps the plant sustain its stems, leaves, and roots.
