Hello, I have a golden pothos that's thriving and I love it's long trailing stems. I'd also really like to take cuttings to make more plants, but the thought of trimming those big long stems pains me.

What happens to a stem when I take a cutting? Will it continue to grow, or just stop dead?

Welcome to the forum.

Just trim them into 1/2 or 1/3. Go to youtube and see how others go about it. Note
  1. the time of the year,
  2. the length,
  3. medium (compost) and
  4. light level and
  5. where to cut.
You will enjoy it. Don't over-think it.

Thanks, no concerns about growing the cutting though, it's what happens to the stem on the parent plant? I've not been able to find an answer on that anywhere.

Some plant will suffer or produce sap at the wrong time of the year. Don't think you need to worry if you do it at the right time of the year. If worried, put a plaster on it!:LOL::ROFLMAO:
