|I know this is devils ivy but for some reason it dont grow like any other devils ivy i had in the past. Its done nothing but give me a hard time since i brought it home. Most of it died off after having it about 2 months or little longer.
Im starting to believe maybe its a different type of devils ivy. Maybe a different strand meaning i wouldnt know what the plant wants if i have the name wrong.
I have grown these before without issues now its as if nothing i do makes him.happy.
These are the last few pieces... any ideas how i can get this guy to grow?

|I had not heard the name Devil's Ivy before and thought it was a Pothos. It is both plus it has a ton of other common names. The botanical name is Epipremnum aureum but they call it Devils' Ivy because it is almost "impossible to kill".
Looks like you have it growing in good soil. Are you allowing the soil to dry out before watering? Maybe water less often and mist occasionally and hope for some improvement.
