Why are the leaves on my Pothos dying? - Knowledgebase Question

My Pothos plant seems to be doing well except it just started having some of its leaves turn yellow and die. It had been doing this slowly for about two weeks (one leaf every few day) but a lot of them just turned yellow overnight. Is this normal?

Agree, with Green's answer below, posted before mine, but if it accelerates past a normal rate, the soil could be becoming too dry between waterings.

Your plant looks beautiful. The yellow leaves are those that the plant no longer needs. Keep up the good work.
