Also known as the satin or silver pothos, Scindapsus pictus 'Exotica' is a vigorous vining plant whose light green foliage is speckled with silvery, reflective variegation. The heart-shaped leaves are velvety to the touch and quite matte in texture, which is perhaps why the plant is also known by the common names Philodendron Silver and Satin Pothos (though botanically it is neither Philodendron nor Pothos). This large-leafed cultivar of Scindapsus pictus shows more intense variegation than the standard type, covering anywhere from 60-90% of the leaf. Eventually, its vines grow quite long, making Scinapsus pictus a great choice for hanging planters.
Silver Pothos are great air purifying plants.
These plants are are non-toxic and pet friendly.
Plant Diameter: 4"
Light: bright, not direct light, although it also will tolerate low-light conditions. Pale leaves means too much sun, and loss of variegation means too little.
Water: Every 5 days; let the soil dry out between waterings. The leaves droop when the plant is thirsty and needs a drink. But don’t let this wilt-y stage go for too long or you will start to see leaf drop.
Soil: Grow in any well-draining potting soil. Pothos are light feeders, but you can give it a monthly snack with a balanced fertilizer formulated for houseplants.
