LOL i would never pinch anything, but someones making some $$ off a plant thats probably growing wild in lots of places and causing damage to waterways. The name alone makes me think its not welcome somewhere!

devil's ivy get its name to its toxicity... the sap can irritate sensitive skin...
and can cause severe allergic reaction to some...so better be careful but for
some..it does not affect at all.... one stem can propagate in just 1 month...
i had tried many plants and get variable result...

Bought a potted Pothos from Lowes last weekend. I clipped 12 little sections of Pothos to add to my aquariums.... just waiting for roots to appear B)

Marty, are you adding these to the tank? or in a filter compartment?
If you are adding them to a filter compartment you can add them now, the roots will come...
