Scindapsus Pictus Exotica | Philodendron Silver | Satin Pothos
Scindapsus pictus ‘Exotica’ is a vigorous vining plant whose light green foliage is speckled with silvery, reflective variegation. The heart-shaped leaves are velvety to the touch and quite matte in texture. This plant is also known by the common names Philodendron Silver and Satin Pothos.
The Silver Satin (Scindapsus pictus) is native to Southeast Asia and has the reputation of being one of the easiest houseplants to keep alive. It is known for its fast-growing, trailing vines. A mature Silver Satin can grow vines between 4-10 feet long depending on conditions.
The genus name is derived from the Greek word ‘skindapsos’, which is said to mean “upon tree trunks” in reference to the plants growth habit. In the wild, Scindapsus grows as an epiphyte climbing along the trunks and limbs of trees attaching themselves with aerial roots. Therefore, it’s a great specimen to train to climb up a coir pole, or placed on a ledge/shelf to cascade over as a trailing plant!

That’s why every plant is packaged snugly with care in a pot with plastic wrapping tightly sitting over the dirt in the pot to prevent it from falling out as well as around the pot to hold it in place inside the shipping box.
