The Scindapsus Pictus has very similar care needs to its cousin the Golden Pothos, but its leaves are smaller, more compact and have delicate speckles of silver rather than streaks of gold.
This houseplant likes indirect light and really doesn’t want to be overwatered, stick to those two rules and you and the Satin Pothos will get on just fine!
You may also know this plant as Scindapsus Pictus Argyraeus, Silver Vine, Silver Cloud, Silk Pothos, Satin Pothos or Silver Philodendron.
Pictus means 'painted' in Latin and refers to the silver variegation mentioned before.
An easy-care, air-purifying houseplant perfect for beginners.
The Scindapsus Pictus has several varieties with different leaf patterns, you may also be interested in the Scindapsus Pictus 'Trebie'.

Light: Tolerant of medium light to bright indirect light, however too much light can cause brown, crispy tips on the leaves.
Water: Keep the soil moist water when the top ⅓ portion of soil dries out. This plant is slightly drought resistant but do try to avoid overwatering. For best results water from underneath with the use of a saucer to reduce the chance of root rot. Reduce watering during winter months.
Food: Feed twice monthly during the growing season but not during winter.
Humidity: High humidity will produce a happier plant but will tolerate a normal household humidity. A low humidity will cause brown, crispy tips on the leaves.
Arrived quickly with the plant in perfect condition.
I ordered a Chinese money plant, the satin pottos and a dwarf banana plant. They were posted incredibly quickly and arrived in lovely condition. I also bought the lilac pot which is beautiful.
After having ordered from a very similar store a few days before and being so disappointed I didn't have the highest hopes for my second ever online plant delivery but I was so wrong! I was thrilled to receive my plants from Moose Plant shop, they are beautifully healthy and the packaging kept them as safe as possible on their journey, the price was also perfect for me. I cannot recommend Moose Plant shop enough and I will 100% be ordering again!
