Scindapsus Pictus Exotica- Pothos Satin
The Silver Satin (Scindapsus pictus) is native to Southeast Asia and has the reputation of being one of the easiest houseplants to keep alive. It is known for its heart-shaped matte leaves, splashed with spots of iridescent gray, and fast-growing trailing vines. A mature Silver Satin can grow vines between 4-10 feet long depending on conditions.
Light: Scindapsus are adaptable. It prefers bright, indirect light, but will tolerate medium and low light. They do not do well in direct sunlight since the sun will burn the foliage.
Water: Water when the 100% of soil is dry.
*We recommend Bottom-watering, sometimes called reverse watering, is when you place a plant in a bowl of water, allowing the soil and roots to soak water from the bottom up. (Naturally, your pot needs to have drainage holes for this to work.
Humidity :This plant will do well in low humidity environments but will thrive with a bit more humidity. Brown leaf tips may indicate the air is too dry.
Temperature :Your Golden Pothos prefers average to warm temperatures, 65-85 degrees.
Food: Feed monthly or every other month in the spring and summer with a general-purpose indoor plant fertilizer.
Toxic : Scindapsus are mildly toxic to pets and humans. Typically, ingestion will cause mouth and stomach irritation and possible vomiting.
Tips: Snip stems just above a leaf node; new growth will emerge from this cut and trimming close to the node will also prevent an ugly stub at the site.
