Silver Pothos Exotica care

  • 🌞

    Light exposure

    Scindapsus Pictus Exotica doesn't grow much in low light because the silver parts of the leaves don't capture much light for photosynthesis as its brother Scindapsus Pictus Argyraeus. Make sure to place it in a bright spot.

  • 💦

    Watering

    Figuring out a watering schedule that works for your Scindapsus Pictus Exotica isn’t too hard and the plant is quite forgiving, making it a great option for beginners. It’s not possible to tell you exactly how often you should water yours, as it all depends on the conditions in your home.

    Pothos are plants that like moist but not soggy soil. Knowing this, you can water your pothos every time the top inch is dry but don't over water it or its roots will rot.

    Humidity

    Scindapsus Pictus Exotica does okay in average room humidity (around 40% relative humidity) or higher.

    An easy way to increase humidity is to group your plants, mist the leaves or place a container with water near the plant so it evaporates.

  • ⚗️

    Fertilizer

    As a pothos plant, it doesn't require much fertilizer but, in case you prefer to feed your Pothos, do it once a month with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted by half.

    Tips

    • Mist the leaves to increase humidity.
    • 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!
