I bought recently a pothos n'joy. I know that the variegation should be white and green.
When I brought it home it was extremely dry. So I watered it pretty well. Since then I watered it maybe once more. I checked the root and they seemed as it needs to be repot it into a bigger pot. They are everywhere and some have the same shape as the pot.
I've noticed some of the leaves are super white and green and other are yellow/cream and green. I don't know why. It sits in front of a window so it doesn't loose the variegation and the new leaves are growing extremely big.
I just don't understand why are they yellow and green instead of white and green.
Is it a problem with the plant? Should I move it closer to the window or give it more or less water? Or maybe repot it?
First picture is when I bought it. The rest is from now.

Your Pothos is a hybrid and the coloration can change for reasons beyond your control. Just keep it healthy and let it do its thing.

The root system you described is exactly as it should be and it does not need to be repotted. Plants do best when kept moderately potbound as yours is.

Give it lots of bright indirect sunlight, close to a window, but just beyond the reach of the direct rays of the sun.

Thank you very much for your help!
I will keep talking care of it as I did until now 😊
