Scientific Name
Scindapsus pictus (painted skindapsos- a four-stringed musical instrument) 

Common Name
Silk Pothos, Satin Pothos, Silver Vine

Native to Southeast Asia

The leaves of the Satin Pothos are as eye-catching for their texture as the fabric for which they are named. This vinelike plant grows well in a hanging pot or from a higher perch, and the silvery variegation on its heart-shaped leaves will draw attention in any room. This plant is also not demanding when it comes to light; shadier locations are fine, as long as there is a window somewhere your Pothos should be able to get enough light; just be careful not to over-water it in really shady locations.

Indirect light; this plant will do well in a shadier spot as long as you do not over-water. If you start to lose variegation it may be in too shady a spot.

Allow the top third of the soil to dry out between waters; if in a shadier location, allow half the soil to dry out.

Average humidity is fine, just make sure your plant is not too close to a radiator or heater which will dry it out. Hose down occasionally to clean the leaves but don't mist as this can cause issues if the leaves are left damp.

Plant in well-draining, moisture-retentive soil. A mix designed for Monstera or Philodendrons will work well for your Pothos. Repot every three years in spring as the plant grows.

Feed every four waters in the growing season, and reduce to every six in autumn and winter.

Temperature should ideally be between 18-30°C- make sure it doesn't drop below 12°C in winter.

No, this plant is toxic to pets and small humans.

Sprouts Top Tips
Prune off yellow or dying leaves; your plant may look small at first but with care, it will really branch out! Think about where it will grow to and make sure it has space. You can use cuttings to propagate new plants from too if you do need to trim the plant down!
