Satin Pothos

Scindapsus pictus

With its heart-shaped leaves and silvery variegation, the satin pothos is a truly beautiful trailing plant.

This is a relatively hardy plant, and will withstand most conditions. It likes humidity so water when the top inch or two of soil feels dry and mist regularly - this would also be a good plant to put in the bathroom.

Plant Bio

An evergreen climber native to the jungles of Southeast Asia, the satin pothos is a striking specimen. In the wild this plant trails up the trunks of trees or spreads out on the forest floor, but in the home we typically let it hang from a shelf or surface. If you do want to train it up a wall, however, it’s easily done and can make a really striking home decor feature.
