Satin Pothos Overview
This plant is well known by the names Satin Pothos, Scindapsus pictus or Scindapsus pictus 'Argyraeus'. It is a slow-growing evergreen twiner from the Araceae family. It can reach over 1 m in height. It produces attractive dark green, ovate leaves spotted with silver on the upper surface. The common name Satin Pothos references this plant's old classification in the Epipremnum genus. It has since been moved to the genus Scindapsus but the common name has stuck. This cultivar is grown for its foliage over the flowers, which are rarely seen in cultivation. Keep out of cold draughts and be careful about overwatering. The soil should be moist but not soggy and it shouldn't remain fully saturated with water for long periods of time. Best practice is to water regularly, ensuring the pot completely drains and is not left standing in water. In the wild, this plant spreads across surfaces, growing in a shingle-like manner. This plant has earnt a Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit.
