- Botanical Name: Scindapsus pictus 'Exotica.'
- Common Name(s): Large-Leaf Pothos Picta, Silver Pothos, Silver Splash Pothos, Exotica.
- Description: This plant is very similar to Scindapsus pictus var. 'Argyreus' but where Argyreus has more defined spots and edge markings, this plant has a wider area of silver splashing across the leaf that is less defined. Holding it under a light, the silver on some leaves appear to shimmer and take on a satin look. Scindapsus pictus is a slower growing vine that is a member of the Araceae family and native to Thailand and the Philippines. Not as common of a houseplant as Pothos, but it does well in normal household environments but will appreciate higher humidity. This species features rounded-heart-shaped leaves that curve to one side at the tip. In time, it can easily grow to lengths of several feet long. For best color, keep in bright, indirect light but it will also do well in shady areas.
How To Take Care Of Your Pothos
Pothos Plants love bright, indirect sunlight, but can thrive in almost any light condition. Just make sure you keep them out of direct sunlight for too long to avoid them getting burnt!
Check the soil of this plant often to see when it needs water, which will depend on how much light you are giving it. Make sure the top 2 inches of soil are dry before rewatering, and water thoroughly.
Pothos are very toxic if consumed so keep away from both children and pets!
