It is more benefical and removes more waste semi-submerged.

Im no expert but IMO Id say that the roots are still in there doing thier job and im sure the leaves probably soak up some stuff too, plus I leave a few leaves emerged as well to grab stuff from the air. as I said Im no expert by any means but it seems logical to me that having it mostly submerged would be just as beneficial if not more so than roots only....but hopefully someone with better plant knowledge can chime in. I still do my water changes on the same schedule though just in case...

Good to know! The cuttings I currently have in my tank now are pretty small, only 3-4 leaves each. I will try to get them partially emerged now, but I might have to make some bigger cuttings first! :)

my buddy ALWAYS has cuttings so I figure I can afford to mess up a bit during this trial and error process, but so far so good....good luck with yours too :)

When there leaves are in the air they are not lilited by CO2 and work faster and remove formaldehyde, benzene, and xylene from the air.

That's exactly how I feel too. I always heard that pothos were next to impossible to kill, but I'm not sure how that applies to being in aquariums.

I saw one Pothos grow ten feet out of an aquarium filter.
