Scindapsus pictus are also commonly known as Silver pothos, silk pothos or Silver satin pothos. They originate from south east Asia. The satin pothos is such a beautiful plant, Dark green heart shaped leaves with silver speckles, truly beautiful. Silver satin is a vining plant so you can have this as a hanging plant or climbing up a moss pole or if you have the space they look incredible grown up a wall. When they grow up a pole or wall the leaves can grow quite large as they grow towards the light. They can reach lengths of 5ft but i have seen them grow all around people rooms and once its established and in the right conditions it is a very fast grower.
They can cause irritation to pets and humans. 
Does not come with a cover pot as shown in the photo.  
 Plants may have been watered before shipping, do not water upon arrival unless they are dry.

Light
Part sun, part shade (indirect light) – Plants with this requirement are easy to find a perfect spot for.West- or East-facing windows are great for these or even a spot further away from a very sunny window.

Watering
Medium demand – Before you water always feel the soil the top layer should be dry before giving more water. This plant loves water but does not want their roots to live in water, so water well and then let the soil almost dry out before watering again. If the plant gets too much water, it is at risk of rot.
Water type unsensitive – Normal tap water is fine for this plant.

Temprature
These are the recommended temperatures for your plant to thrive, making it happy and healthy: 16°C-27°C

Fertilizing
Fertilizing in winter – Only fertilise this plant in winter if it is actively growing (putting out new leaves) and use a weak fertiliser at half the recommended dose. Most plants will go dormant in winter and stop growing so will not need fertilised. If you were to fertilise a dormant plant, it will not absorb the nutrients which will stay in the soil and can cause chemical burn to the plant.

Humidity
High humidity – This means keeping them in a warm, humid, draft free location. You can increase humidity by using pebble trays under your pots, by grouping plants close together, by misting in the morning and of course using a humidifier.
 

Soil

Standard houseplant mix – You want the soil to be moist but well-draining. Try 2 parts coco coir or potting mix and 1-part perlite. If the plant is drying out to quickly in your environment, then use less perlite. Conversely if the soil is staying too soggy add more perlite.

Toxicity
Toxic for animals and humans.

 

As with any plant, do not repot within 1-2 weeks of receiving as you need your plant to acclimatise to your house and recover from the stress of shipping.
