Satin Pothos 4"


Satin Pothos, scientifically known as Scindapsus pictus, is a captivating trailing vine cherished for its heart-shaped leaves adorned with striking silver variegation. Its lush foliage cascades gracefully, making it an ideal choice for adding greenery to hanging baskets or allowing it to trail over shelves or furniture. This low-maintenance plant thrives in indirect light and prefers regular watering, allowing the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. Its elegant appearance and easy care requirements make it a popular choice for both beginner and experienced plant enthusiasts alike.


Care Plan for Satin Pothos:

  1. Light: Provide bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.
  2. Watering: Water when the top inch of soil feels dry. Ensure proper drainage to prevent root rot.
  3. Humidity: Tolerates average humidity but prefers higher levels. Mist regularly or use a pebble tray.
  4. Temperature: Maintain temperatures between 65°F to 75°F. Avoid cold drafts.
  5. Pruning: Trim leggy stems to encourage bushier growth.
  6. Fertilizing: Feed with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season.
  7. Repotting: Repot every 1-2 years in spring using well-draining potting mix.
  8. Propagation: Easily propagated through stem cuttings in water or soil.
  9. Common Issues: Watch for yellowing leaves (excessive light), browning leaves (underwatering), and wilting (underwatering).
  10. Safety Precautions: Keep away from children and pets as the plant's sap may cause skin irritation and mouth burning if ingested
