Satin Pothos

Botanical Name: Scindapsus pictus 'Argyraeus'

Satin Pothos is just as easy to grow as its relative, golden pothos (Epipremnum aureum). Keep it warm and take care not to overwater this house plant. Cold drafts and soggy soil are two things it won't tolerate.

 

You'll see the best leaf color and variegation by keeping it in bright, indirect light. You'll also keep the plant healthy by boosting the humidity around it. In fact, its variegated foliage makes Satin Pothos a beautiful addition to a terrarium.

 

Water: Water thoroughly and allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. Keep soil barely moist in winter. Yellow leaves are a symptom of overwatering. Always use room-temperature water when watering houseplants an provide good drainage.

Humidity: Try to maintain 40-50% relative humidity around your plant. Use a room humidifier or a humidity tray in winter, if the air is dry.

Temperature: Average to warm 65-85°F/18-29°C. Don't expose Satin Pothos to temperatures below 60°F/16°C, even for a short time because cold air will damage the foliage of this tropical plant.

Soil: Use all-purpose houseplant potting mix.

Fertilizer: Feed monthly spring through fall with a 20-10-10 water-soluble fertilizer diluted by half. 

Propagation: Take 4 inch (10 cm) tip cuttings in spring or early summer and insert them into moist peat moss based potting mix. Cuttings root easily in about a month.
