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.
Position your indoor garden pot in bright, indirect light, but Scindapsus can tolerate medium to low indirect light. Not suited for intense, direct sun.
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.
Loves humid areas like bathrooms and kitchens.
Use good quality potting mix.
Scindapsus Silver Satin is an easy-going plant and is generally pest-free. Treat pests as soon as they appear with weekly sprays of a natural pesticide like neem oil and regularly wipe-down leaves to keep that silver variegation shimmering.
Yellowing leaves, wilted
Wilting leaves, curling
Scindapsus vine can be toxic if ingested. Best practice is always to keep houseplants out of reach of small children and pets.
