Hi i already have one that has it's roots in a vase full of water i just would like to know if those roots would be aquarium safe.

I searched the net and read that it was OK i just want to double check with you guys.

Sure, go ahead. One LFS has Pothos Ivy thriving like that! The root system has actually taken over about ½ of the whole tank (about 400 l). :) I wouldn't place a new cutting in the tank, though, in fear of its fluids leaking into the tank (though they should be safe). So, a rooted cutting might be the best option or a well washed potplant (might take a bit time adjusting to watery conditions).

why wouldn't it be safe? it's non toxic. My iguana eats it. i find new clippings actually grow better with roots emmersed.

This is the filter in my terrarium. I have had that pothos in there for a few months. It started from one leave, but i have enough nutrients in there to grow a heavy planted ten gallon too. But anyway, it is living proof pothos does okay emmersed.

Pothos is a really nice plant to grow like that. It grows fast and prettily and so do many other house plants when grown like that. :)

I had lots of Pothos growing from my old 38G tank, you can see some leaves on the left side of the picture in this message, but most of it is growing against the wall behind the tank and can't be seen: http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/271261-post116.html
