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.
You can leave its vines to grow long and hang (which looks especially great in a basket up high) or you can train them to climb up a stake, trellis or moss pole.
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.
Scindapsus Pictus 'Trebie'
When I took this plant out if its box, I actually gasped at how perfect it was, and how enormous the leaves were (I was not expecting THAT!). Utterly gorgeous, in pristine condition/health, and a perfect addition to my collection. And of course, excellent packaging and delivery times as ever. Thanks so much for continuing to knock it out the park, MPS.
