Origin: Southeast Asia
Height: Trails to 3 ft (90 cm) or more. You can cut the stems back to any length, if you want a smaller houseplant.
Light: Give Scindapsus pictus bright, indirect light year-round. Harsh direct sunlight will scorch its leaves, while too-little light will cause the leaves to lose their variegation.
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.
