    Satin Pothos 'Exotica' Overview

    Scindapsus pictus 'Exotica' is an evergreen twiner that grows great as a houseplant. It has attractive dark grey-green, ovate leaves spotted with silver on the upper surface. The leaves curl attractively at the edges. The common name Satin Pothos references this plants old classification in the Epipremnum genus. It has since been moved to the genus Scindapsus but the common name has stuck. It may also be sold under the names Scindapsus pictus 'Trebie', Epipremnum 'Trebie' or Satin Pothos 'Trebie'. This cultivar is grown for the variegated 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.
