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.
