Can anyone help with my marble queen? She is losing leaves like crazy and I don't know what to do, I water once every week or two, when the soil is dry. She's located to the right of a south east facing window, though I am in canada and it's currently winter. I had her for four months and she was thriving beautifully until last month. There's new growth, but she's losing faster than she gains

It would do better if it were not hanging so high above the window. The leaves closest to the pot are not getting enough light, so lowering the pot would help.

The soil should dry down about a half-inch before watering it thoroughly.

Pothos are best kept pruned back somewhat. As vines get very long, they tend to lose older leaves closer to the pot while continuing to add new leaves at the tip ends. New growth will emerge on any healthy stem at whatever point you cut that stem back to. So you can control where new growth emerges.

Pruned off cuttings root readily in plain water.
