6" Silver Satin Pothos
Botanical Name: Scindapsus pictus 'Argyraeus'
Satin Pothos is just as easy to grow as its relative, golden pothos (Epipremnum aureum). Keep it warm and take care not to overwater this house plant. Cold drafts and soggy soil are two things it won't tolerate.
You'll see the best leaf color and variegation by keeping it in bright, indirect light. You'll also keep the plant healthy by boosting the humidity around it. In fact, its variegated foliage makes Satin Pothos a beautiful addition to a terrarium.
Plant Height: 6" Nursery Width Pot
Plant Height: 4" Nursery Width Pot
Origin: Southeast Asia
Height: Trails to 3 ft (90 cm) or more. You can cut the stems back to any length, if you want a smaller houseplant.
Light: Give Scindapsus pictus bright, indirect light year-round. Harsh direct sunlight will scorch its leaves, while too-little light will cause the leaves to lose their variegation.
Water: Water thoroughly and allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. Keep soil barely moist in winter. Yellow leaves are a symptom of overwatering. Always use room-temperature water when watering houseplants provide good drainage.
Humidity: Try to maintain 40-50% relative humidity around your plant. Use a room humidifieror a humidity tray in winter, if the air is dry.
