Scindapsus Pictus: Silver Pothos, Satin Pothos, Silk Pothos are among the many names for this beautiful, silvery green plant. Holding it up to a light, it has a silvery shimmer and looks almost like smooth satin.
Although this plant is a pothos, it is slower growing than the Devil's Ivy or Green Queen variety. It also tends to not grow as high as other pothos varieties and stays more of a "low bush" shape making it ideal for everything from shelves to hanging baskets. It can eventually grow to be a few feet long and be trained to vine up, around, or across shelves or posts.
Size: This plant is in a 4'' pot, and from the bottom of the pot to the top of the plant, measures from around 6.5''-9.''
Light: This plant prefers to be in bright, indirect light. It can tolerate areas of less light but but will look best in indirect light.
Water: Water when the top 1/2'-1'' of the soil dries out. Like many other pothos, it can be susceptible to rot, so it doesn't want to sit in water or stay wet long.
Humidity: This plant is native to Thailand and the Philippines and prefers higher humidity so at the very least, please make sure it's not near a heater or cooling vent.
Temperature: These do well with common indoor home temperatures of 65-75 F.
Soil: Pothos plants need well-draining potting soil
Fertilizing: Pothos aren't heavy feeders, but we recommend fertilizing in its main growing season (Spring-Fall), bimonthly with a houseplant fertilizer. We prefer our "Green Thumbs" fertilizer but any well-balanced indoor fertilizer will do.
Flower: Silver Splash Pothos don't flower.
Toxicity: Toxic to animals & humans if ingested.
