How to Grow Different Pothos in One Pot?
The procedure of growing two or more pothos in the same pot is also popular as Frankensteining pothos, and it is as simple as it sounds.
All you have to do is take 5 to 6 inches long cuttings just below a node from your favorite cultivars, then plant them in a pot. That’s it! You are done. Water well and keep the pot at a location where it gets plenty of bright but indirect light.
Make sure to place them together, right in the center of the container, as it will give enough space for the vines to dangle down from the corner of the pot once each grows.

Things to Take Care of While Growing Different Pothos in One Pot
As all the varieties and types of pothos have more or less the same growing requirements, you can easily grow them in one pot.
1. Size of the Pot
The only thing you need to take care of while growing two or more different pothos in the same pot is its size. Do not use a small container like a 3-4 inches wide one, as it will push the plants to fight for nutrients, and it will also make them crowded in no time.
So, what’s the solution for this? Simple — use a pot at least 8 inches big. This will provide ample space for the roots of both the plants to grow actively, which will keep them healthy and thriving.
2. Pruning and Maintenance
Pothos, being vining plants, can get quite bushy over time, and having various cultivars in the same pot can make them quite ‘busy’ in a pot. To ensure the size stays in check, prune the vines regularly. Also, snip away damaged or yellowing stems and leaves from time to time.
You might also have to re-pot them in a bigger pot as soon as the plant becomes root-bound.
