Silver Satin Pothos Care Tips

Knowing how to care for your houseplants is half the battle! It is important to understand the needs of each plant. Keep reading to learn the Silver Satin Pothos care tips that will keep your plant alive and thriving!

Silver Satin Pothos

Known for its variegated, silvery leaves, the Silver Satin Pothos or the Scindapsus is a well-known trailing plant. The Scindapsus can be used as a hanging plant or trained to grow on a post or trellis. While a slow-growing plant, the Scindapsus is quite versatile and easy to grow as long as you keep it happy!

Light Requirements

Like many houseplants, the Silver Satin Pothos thrives in bright, indirect light. East or west-facing windows are best, as long as the direct sun rays do not touch the plant, as it will burn the leaves. While it can be grown in low-light conditions, be aware that growth may be slow, and the plant’s vines may become leggy.

Water Requirements

Watering Silver Satin Pothos is not rocket science, as they are not picky! The main thing to remember when watering this houseplant is to only water when dry! The best way to know if a watering is needed is to stick your finger into the soil to your first knuckle. If your finger comes out with soil on it, don’t water; if your finger comes out clean, time to water! You can also check watering needs by lifting the pot. If it is light, then it is time to water.

With so many houseplants coming into fashion in the houseplant community, it is still important to choose plants that work well with your home and environment. Luckily, the Silver Satin Pothos is a great plant for beginners and masters alike!
