A coworker of mine has a beautiful pothos plant and offered to cut of a piece of it so that I may propagate my own plant. The only issue is that I live an hour away and take public transportation and do not want to kill the clippings. How long can the cut leaves last for after being cut? I don't want to kill them, and now as I'm writing this I'm considering taking them in a baggie or a water bottle to prevent them from not only not having water, but from also being crushed. I don't know what to do. Also, how hardy are these plants during the winter months? Thank you for your help.

Transporting your Pothos cuttings home is the easy part, as long as you keep them protected from the cold. Place the cuttings in a plastic bag and they will be fine for at least 24 hours. Just be sure to insulate the plastic from the cold. If you put them in a cardboard or plastic box, they won't get crushed. Pothos cuttings are not particularly fragile; they are pliable and flexible.
