Scindapsus Pictus 'Exotica'Common Name: Large-Leaf Pothos Picta, Silver Pothos, Satin Pothos, Philodendron Silver
USDA Hardiness Zones: 10b-12 (outdoors)
There are many ways to grow the Scindapsus pictus ‘Exotica’ indoors. You can grow it as a bushy tropical plant in pots, climbing up a moss pole, or gracing a hanging basket. Although Scindapsus pictus ‘Exotica’ has common names such as Satin Pothos, Silver Pothos, or Philodendron Silver, the plant doesn’t belong to either species. The large, eye-catching heart-shaped (cordate) leaves of Scindapsus pictus ‘Exotica’ make this a sought-after houseplant. The leafy tropical foliage has a velvety feel. The large oval, pointed leaves grow densely on the trailing vines, giving the Scindapsus ‘Exotica’ plant a lush, tropical look. The silvery markings on the variegated cordate leaves look like splashes of paint. Compared to Scandapsus pictus ‘Argyraeus,’ the silver blotches cover most of the leaf. About 60 to 90 percent of the ‘Exotica’ plant’s leaf surface is covered in silvery speckles.
Not as common of a houseplant as Pothos, but it does well in normal household environments but will appreciate higher humidity. 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.
Please note: Toxic to humans, cats and dogs if ingested
