Help for Pothos

Try watering the pothos with distilled, or bottled water.  Sometimes the
chlorine content of tap water is great enough to cause "tip burn" in
various species.  If these waters aren't handy or available, you can
dechlorinate the water rapidly with a dilute sodium thiosulfate
solution, or at a more leisurely pace by letting it sit out in the open
for 4 or 5 days to dechlorinate.  Best of luck to you.
