Scindapsus Pictus 'Satin Pothos'


The ‘Satin Pothos’ isn’t actually a Pothos at all, though it behaves similarly to one. Whilst it’s relatively new to houseplant nurseries (in comparison to the snake plant), it has gained a lot of popularity due to it’s variegated leaves. These leaves will produce the most interesting patterns when faced with consistent sunlight.

It’s a great trailing plant and is used to growing around tall trees in it’s native South East Asia, often reaching lengths of round 3 or more feet. If you treat it right, you can produce similar results at home.
