- Description: This striking tropical plant is fairly new to house plant nurseries, and is garnering a lot of attention. Big, heart-shaped leaves are dark-green and splashed with silvery gray, giving them a satin sheen. Its compact growth habit makes Scindapsus pictus 'Argyraeus' a beautiful hanging basket plant. 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.
- Care:The lighter the color in the leaves, the more light the plant requires. Avoid direct sun as it will burn the leaves.
Water every 1-2 weeks, leaving the soil to dry in between. Only water when the top of the soil is dry to the touch.
Well-Drained, Porous potting soil.
This plant should be fertilized once during the growing season (spring/summer) with diluted houseplant fertilizer.
