I have made several cuttings from a semi dead all green pothos. The new plants are interesting in that some cuttings have remained all green while others have become beautifully variegated. I understand how this can happen....but my question involves the new leaves on the cuttings from my newly rooted plants. I was careful with the "new" cuttings....I even used rooting hormone this time around but new leaves are growing in healthy looking but much smaller then usual... How do I prevent this/what did I do wrong?
To restate....these plants are 2nd generation cuttings....the original cuttings had the same size leaves throughout.....but now that I have made cutting from those cuttings I as getting progressively smaller leaves....Help!

The leaves will grow as the plant matures. In nature, fully mature leaves have splits and slits. Here are examples from our database:
