Scindapsus pictus 'Argyraeus'

 

Silver Pothos, Devil's Ivy

Scindapsus are evergreen climbers, with heart-shaped leaves on tendrils that climb or trail. The leaves are dark green, splashed with silver.. The plant bears a dense spike of tiny flowers within a spathe, but these are rarely seen in cultivation. The plant has a compact growth habit, so is ideal in a hanging-basket. Does best in bright indirect light and high humidity.

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Plant in a location with bright, indirect sunlight. Position near to a window where direct sunlight cannot touch the foliage. If the plant gets too much light, the leaves will begin to turn yellow. If the stems are long and leggy without plenty of leaves, the plant is most likely to be receiving insufficient light.

 

Propagation

From Early Summer TO Late Summer

Cuttings require warm conditions. In summer, take stem cuttings or air layer the climbing varieties. With non-climbing varieties, shoots taken from the base of the stem can be used as cuttings.
