Pothos is easy to propage and cutting off the tip of the stem won't hurt your plant. In fact, it will branch out with two stems just below the pruning cut. Just cut off the top 4-inches of the stem . Make the cut just below a rood note. The root nodes are little brown bumps protruding from the stem of the pothos. Remove the bottom leaf and set the stem in a glass of water so that the bottom node is covered by water. This is where new roots will develop. Once your cutting has developed a root system you can pot it up and you'll have a new plant.
