Thanks for the update....I just trimmed off some pothos and put just the stems into the tank. If your experiment continues with success I may try the submersion method

good luck with your cuttings, they will probably sprout roots QUICK! I will definitely keep this updated if I notice changes, good or bad :) Sushi LOVES to lounge on the leaves, who needs a betta hammock lol

Thanks for this thread! I have pothos in my tank, a few small cuttings just floating on the top. They have been in there for almost a month now and the fish just love swimming around them! I was worried that they would just die because they are mostly submerged, but so far so good. The plants still look healthy but I have not noticed any new growth, but I think it is because my tank isn't fully cycled yet. I have a huge pothos in my living room that I am always cutting down, so if I can put it in my tank that is just wonderful. :)

It takes a few months for submerged plants to die.

Like I said they are terrestrial to semi-aquatic plants.

Do you know if submerged pothos still benefit the tank at all? I really don't mind replacing mine every couple months if needed because like I said my big plant just goes crazy and I am constantly cutting off pieces. If it's benefiting the tank too though, that's a plus.
