What advice can you give me on transplanting golden pothos?

I need to move my pothos to a larger garden area.

Pothos can stand being root bound so you should never be nervous about transplanting. You have to make sure you have some good potting soil. Also try to transport some of it's original soil so the plant will get accustomed to its new home. You may see some leaves shed but that is normal.

This is a durable delightful plant You can easily transplant this into a good quality potting soil- don't be disturbed if it sheds leave, it does, initially. Pothos can stand being rootbound, so don't be anxious about transplanting. You can prune this back as much as you like, and root in water or vermiculite, planting several rootings together.

Pruning it a bit before transporting it would be a good idea. Don't worry if a few leafs fall off of it. Also make sure that you transport a bit of it's original soil with it so that it will become accustom to its new space quicker. It would also be a good idea to plant several rootings together.

It is best to dig out a lot more soil than you think would contain the root mass. Also remember that it must be done quickly to prevent root damage.

Prune it a little bit before you transplant it, and don't be afraid if you see that leaves are falling off. It's a plant that holds well, and water it!

The best time to do this is in the spring. Dig a wide enough area around the plant so you don't damage the roots. Plant it in the new area and give it plenty of water so it doesn't go into shock.
