I threw some pothos cuttings in my hob filters on my 3 display tanks and since they are indoors and out of direct sunlight, I'm wondering what kind of grow lights should I get for them to get them going? Any suggestions? Kinda on a budget, and I'm hoping they won't be something that will be glaring into everyone's eyeballs?

It sounds weird, but I’ve found that pothos do really well under the Ikea grow lights for me. I’ve had success with them with ohther plants, as well!

Pothos is a low light plant so you really don't need to add an extra light for it unless your room is completely dark.

The good thing about Pothos is the fact that they will grow under just normal room light. I don't have any special kind of light for the ones I have growing in my tank and they are growing like weeds.

Agreed - they are super easy to grow, and like indirect natural light. Too much direct light will make it pretty unhappy (as I discovered).
