Know more about Scindapsus Pictus Exotica

Scindapsus Pictus Exotica it's a must-have plant for people who like hanging plants, climbing plants, or rare varieties because it has a beautiful leaf pattern with amazing silverish color.

Pothos are easy plants that are recommended for beginners because they adapt so well to temperature, light, and watering environments, so don't be afraid to water it a bit most than you should.

If you have babies or pets think it twice before taking a pothos home because they are toxic if ingested. Pets have an instinct, to avoid eating toxic stuff so I don't think they will bite the plant, but take a look to see how they behave when you take it home. You can also place it out of their reach to make sure nothing bad happens.

Even though this satin pothos has an exotic and unique silverish foliage, it's not so rare to find in the market given the high demand it suffers. Scindapsus Pictus Exotica is commonly confused with Scindapsus Pictus Argyraeus because they both have silver patterns on their leaves even though they are easy to identify because Scindapsus Pictus Exotica leaf is completely silver except for the central part and Scindapsus Pictus Argyraeus's leaf is green with silver spots.

Key tips for successful care

  • Wipe the leaves with a damp cloth and gently dry to keep them clean and healthy.
  • The leaves tend to face towards the way of light, so rotate your plant on a regular basis.
  • If you want to control the shape of the plant, use pruners or scissors with a sharp blade.
  • Use a totem to make your pothos climb.
  • Scindapsus Pictus Exotica is an ideal plant for a bright bathroom.
  • All pothos look amazing hanging somewhere, try it!

Scindapsus Pictus Exotica care guide

Scindapsus Pictus Exotica doesn't grow much in low light because the silver parts of the leaves don't capture that much light for photosynthesis, so it needs a brighter light exposure than green foliage plants.

To achieve exposure to bright light, Scindapsus Pictus must be placed on east, south, or west-facing windows always filtering the direct sunlight or placing it a few feet inside. Keep your pothos in bright light to make their colors and contrast more vibrant.

Even though variegated or silverish pothos can grow perfectly in north-facing windows, having it placed there won't make the plant have a vibrant color contrast or grow fast because the light that will receive is less
