Hi, I have had this photos for a couple of weeks. It is getting new leaves and I thought it was happy but I recently found some black parts and I'd like some advise.

Is it normal? Am I doing smth wrong? (pls, see the pictures for more info) Thanks!

Another question about the photos. I found this on the soil, any idea of what it might be? There are several, I didn't fertilize it because I just bought it so I'm not sure of what it might be. Hopefully not an infection, (last picture).

Your Pothos is fine. It is normal for some leaves to discolor and die back.

The soil in the last photo looks very dry. If you keep your Pothos in its plastic nursery pot - and I suggest that you do - then you should water it very thoroughly as soon as the surface of the soil feels dry to the touch or turns a lighter shade of brown. Always water thoroughly until some water runs through the drain hopes. Best to do that in the sink.

You can fertilize it once per month at half strength but no more than that.
