Pot size (diameter): 15 cm, Height (to top of moss pole): 60cm.
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.
Add a bit of height to your indoor jungle with this 60cm tall Scindapsus Pictus. One of the benefits of using a moss pole is that the leaves will continue to grow larger as your plant reaches higher. If you change your mind and decide you would rather keep this plant hanging free, no problem! Carefully remove the plant from the moss pole and repurpose it elsewhere in your collection.
This houseplant likes indirect light and really doesn’t want to be overwatered, stick to those two rules and you and the 'Trebie' will get on just fine!
You may also know this plant as the Silver Vine, Silver Cloud, Silk 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 ‘Argyraeus’.
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.
My first plant of the autumn season and I am in love! Beautifully packaged and beautifully cared for and now has pride of place in my living room. Thankyou!!
