My pothos (ivy) is now turning yellow and dying gradually. It has always been a beautiful green with large leaves. Wht is this happening? I changed the soil to miracle grow time released for nurishment. I water one a week or when needed as the soil is drying and not moist to the touch. i don't do additional feeding.

It sounds like you are doing things right but such symptoms usually point to either soggy wet or dry soil for a period of time; usually when the soil is allowed to dry out too much. Perhaps the plants suffered some root loss when you changed the soil out. Maintain even moisturenad feed them with a soluble plant food such as Miracle Gro or Peters at the label rate. They should respond with new green growth and be fine.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
