Water throughly until water exits the drainage hole(s) and discard the excess water. Don’t water again until the top inch or so of the potting mix dries out. One common symptom of the soil getting too dry is that you will see all the leaves start curling under. If you notice this, feel the soil.
Fertilize all year except during the winter. Use 1/4″ teaspoon liquid fertilizer per gallon of water every time you water. You will really notice a difference with a quality fertilizer. Plants grow better, are more vigorous and flowering houseplants also produce more flowers.

Pothos are subject to root rot so its better to keep them on the dry side rather than too wet. Pothos likes to have its soil dry out between waterings and therefore accepts erratic watering too. The leaves droop when the plant is thirsty! Grow it in a well drained pot and fertilise the plant once a month.
