Scindapsus Satin Pothos

Scindapsus Satin Pothos

Not to get it confused with its cousin Epipremnum Aureum (Devils Ivy), this genus is in a league of its own. Scindapsus leaves tend to be slightly thicker, splashed with spots of iridescent grey or textured silver sheen on heart-shaped matte leaves.

A mature Silver Satin can grow vines between 1-4 metres long depending on conditions. They look stunning in a garden or planter trailing down from a shelf.

General Care

Sunlight

Position your indoor garden pot in bright, indirect light, but Scindapsus can tolerate medium to low indirect light. Not suited for intense, direct sun.

Water

Water

Scindapsus every 1-2 weeks, allowing soil to dry out between waterings. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

Humidity

Loves humid areas like bathrooms and kitchens.

Soil

Use good quality potting mix.
