The Q&A Archives: Pothos leaves are turning yellow

Question: What causes the leaves of an indoor pothos plant to suddenly turn yellow?

Answer: If the yellowing is restricted to just the older leaves, it's natural; if the yellowing occurs on both old and new leaves, it could indicate root rot, especially if the leaves turn bright yellow and begin wilting from the base outward.

Hope this information is helpful.
