Is this pest damage or what? The rest of the plant looks fine, it just randomly gets these yellowing leaves with dots on them. Could it be from underwatering? I definitely do not over water this plant and it is not in much direct sun.

The odd yellow leaf on Pothos is absolutely normal: just pull it out and forget about it until the next pops up.

Ok. I am so happy to hear that it isnt pests. The little dots are what was worrying me! Thanks for the advice! Hurray!

Those freckles look too small for funfal damage. Good idea to remove the affected leaves anyway.

Maybe thrips, I think they were talking about yellowing leaves, not the dots

quarantine the plant, and watch for pests

I'm thinking possibly oedema, which appears in different ways on different plants. It's caused by the plant taking up excess water, not necessarily exactly overwatering. You said you're not overwatering, but it could have been a transient condition. I don't think thrips.
For me, gardening is really just an excuse for playing in the dirt. Admittedly, plants are a satisfying by-product.

I agree with Zoe. We get it on Algerian and English Ivy every summer when we up the watering because it's 100+. Not enough to rot, just enough to be too much.

Pothos can be happily grown in water. It is rarely attacked by any insects. It may be a lack of water.

For Kevalsha in relation to Pothos being grown in water and not developing edema. Different roots, different responses. Not a lack of water.

I put my Pothos in the shower and gave it a good rinse. Next I will spray it down with Captain Jacks Dead Bug Brew. Then I'll keep it quarantined from the rest of my plants.

It doesn't have an insect problem, but if you feel you need to separate it, go ahead.

I would take a couple of leaves, in a ziplock bag, to a professional nursery, not a chain place, if you can help it. They can tell you what it is and advise. Good luck.
