A relative of Epipremnum aureum, Satin Pothos has large, heart shaped matte green leaves with silvery-white splotches and edges. It is more compact than its cousin and makes a beautiful hanging plant, with an elegant, satin sheen. It can be trained to grow along the edges of shelves.
Other common names include Silver Vine, Silver Cloud, Silk Pothos and Silver Philodendron. In Latin, it also goes by the name Scindapsus pictus Argyraeus (particularly in Europe). Pictus means 'painted' and is a reference to its lovely silvery variegation.
Will Wane When Wet! These plants don’t like too much water. If you notice leaves yellowing, tipping or leaf spotting, allow the soil to become dry to the touch before watering again.
Tame the Tipping! If several leaves start to go brown on the tips, lay off the watering. Pothoses prefer to be on the slightly drier side, so only water when the top of the soil has dried out.
Iron out the Kinks! This plant’s leaves will curl when its thirsty. A little water will go a long way, however if you are watering and the plant still curls, it could be a root rot issue.
