Commonly confused with Epipremnum (pothos), Scindapsus are attractive trailing plants with large fleshy leaves. Scindapsus pictus is a species with small, silver striped leaves and an asymmetrical appearance. Very fast growing when given adequate light and fertilizer. A good, showy beginner plant. 


Potting mix: Well-draining soil/peat and perlite/bark mix. Good drainage prevents root rot. Repot in Spring once root bound.

Light: Bright indirect-medium light. Shielded South or West facing preferred. 

Water: Water when near dry (1 inch of the soil is dry). Somewhat resilient to drying out but leaves will crisp. Bounces back easily.

Temp: Warm (65F-80F). 55F minimum.

Humidity: 30-70%. Not picky as long as they are well-watered. 

Fertilizing: Slow release fertilizer (Osmocote recommended) applied at the beginning of Spring. Alternatively, 1/2 strength soluble 20-20-20 fertilizer applied twice monthly during Spring/Summer. Decrease or stop in Winter.
