Satin pothos or Scindapsus pictus are plants that love to hang, climb or trail. They have beautiful silvery grey speckled leaves set against the dark green leaf background. These trailing vines are very popular houseplants, due to their eye-catching looks, easy-care requirements and ability to transform rooms into a lush tropical paradise. It is the cousin of our Golden Pothos and will make the perfect hanging plant for your home.

About Satin Pothos

History

The Satin Pothos is native to Southeast Asia, including Bangladesh, Borneo, Java, Malaya, Philippines, Sulawesi, Sumatra and Thailand. It was discovered by German botanist Justus Hasskarl in 1848. The genus name derives from the Greek word "skindapsos", which means up tree trunks, and the species name "Pictus" is derived from the Greek word for "Painted’".

Cultivation

Satin pothos is a climbing tropical vine. In the wild, they climb tree trunks with aerial roots and can also grow along the ground, with some reaching up to 70 feet in length. Satin pothos is the cousin of our best-selling golden pothos plant, and they are both members of the Arum family.

Care

Satin pothos will thrive in warm, humid and bright conditions, although they can cope in a wide range of light conditions, including light shade. They are relatively drought-tolerant, and it is best to water them when the top few cms of soil have dried out and less so in winter.

Did you know?

The explanation for its striking mottled silver colouration is unknown. Some theories suggest its colouring helps the Satin pothos to photosynthesis in the light-starved jungle floor, whilst others suggest it's to disguise the plant from animals and insects that would eat it.

Toxicity

If ingested this plant can be toxic or poisonous so keep away from dogs, cats or other pets and small children.
