Marble Queen Pothos Leaves Turning Black and Brown

My plant is dying quickly! A few leaves per day. When I got it less than a month ago it was very full. It seems like the leaves with white are dying. Im Pretty sure it’s getting enough sun and water.

Hi Emma,

Over watered Marble Queen Pothos gets brown and black leaves

Overwatered Marble Queen Pothos

It looks like an over watering problem. Marble queen pothos like their soil to be kept on the dry side. During the spring and summer, water well and then allow the top 50% of the soil to dry out before watering again. During the fall and winter, let the soil get almost totally dry before watering. If in doubt, wait for the leaves to become soft and droop a little before you water. Be sure there are drip holes in the bottom of the pot so excess water can drain out and the plant does not sit in water. This plant likes bright indirect light, but no direct sun.
