Only 4 available and it's in 2 people's basket

The Satin Pothos is just as easy to grow as its relative, golden pothos (Epipremnum aureum). Its variegated foliage makes Satin Pothos a beautiful addition to a terrarium. Big, heart-shaped leaves are dark-green and splashed with silvery gray, giving them a satin sheen. Its compact growth habit makes Scindapsus pictus ‘Argyraeus’ a beautiful hanging basket plant.

These beautiful vining plants are a great choice for beginners. They have a matte like texture and feel a bit velvety to touch, hence the common name Satin.

Scindapsus pictus is commonly sold in the market as a Satin pothos or Silver philodendron, but it’s neither a pothos or a philodendron. They are all cousins and belong to the same genus though.

The one with large heart-shaped leaves is ‘Exotica’ and the smaller one is ‘Argyraeus’, although to avoid confusion since most places sell them as Satin pothos we have also decided to retain that name.

  • What to expect: You’ll get a healthy plant in a 4″ nursery pot. Please note: The pictures may show an enlarged plant (more mature plant) for the sake of showing off the plant at its peak!

  • Packaging & Shipping: Every plant is fragile and the shipping process is not always kind (or easy). 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.

  • Returns & Refunds: Due to the nature of the product, we cannot accept returns or refunds. If there are issues with your order, please reach out to us so that we can do our best to find an appropriate resolution.

Care instructions:

  • Soil: A standard well-drained potting soil mix. We use a mixture of 50% perlite and 50% succulent soil mix to ensure the roots remain aerated and healthy.

  • Water: Water every 1-2 weeks, allowing soil to dry out between waterings. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.
