Gorgeous.

They’re pretty easy going and adaptable plants, dealing with some sun and also quite a bit of shade. This is a houseplant that’s both easy and a joy to own.

Care Tips

Scindapsus Pictus ‘Argyraeus’ Satin Pothos Characteristics

This beautiful evergreen climber is a beautiful and easy-care plant with reflective variegation. The silvery blotches on the leaves are due to air pockets below the epidermis of the leaf which create a shimmer when light strikes them. Argyraeus is a beautiful cultivar that received a Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit.


Scindapsus Pictus ‘Argyraeus’ Satin Pothos Natural Environment

Scindapsus pictus is native of southeast Asia, where it grows in rainforests, climbing up trees and rocks. Once the plant attaches and starts to climb, the leaves lie flat against the surface, in a process called shingling. As the plant matures, its leaves get larger and eventually the leaf shape changes to pinnately lobed, but this is rarely, if ever, seen in a plant in cultivation. It produces small aroid spathe flowers but rarely in cultivation.


Scindapsus Pictus ‘Argyraeus’ Satin Pothos Soil Mixture, Fertiliser, Lighting, Watering and Humidity

Grow this plant up a totem or let it trail from a basket. Prune the plant to encourage bushy growth. Use a fast-draining but moisture-retentive mix that is suitable for most aroids and fertilise monthly during active growth. Grow in bright indirect light. Under lower light conditions, it will survive but won’t grow well. Water thoroughly once the soil has dried down about 5 cm. When the plant really needs water, the edges of the leaves will curl. Maintain moderate humidity around the plant and keep the temperature above about 16°C.


Scindapsus Pictus ‘Argyraeus’ Satin Pothos Tips and Common Pests

This is a robust plant, but overwatering can lead to root rot and fungal problems. Brown leaves indicate the humidity is too low, there is a build-up of fertiliser salts in the mix, or the plant has been exposed to too much direct sunlight. The main pests are scale insects and spider mites.


Scindapsus Pictus ‘Argyraeus’ Satin Pothos Toxicity

Like other aroids, Scindapsus pictus contains calcium oxalate crystals and are toxic to pets and humans.
