  • Botanical Name: Epipremnum aureum
  • Common Name(s): Large-Leaf Pothos Picta, Silver Pothos, Silver Splash Pothos

  • Description: This houseplant 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 shade. 

Care:

  • Light: While Pothos do well in a variety of light conditions and can even tolerate low light, moderate indoor light is ideal. Outdoors they can be grown in shade to partial shade. Wherever you decide to display your Pothos, just be sure to avoid direct sunlight. A highly variegated Pothos may lose its variegation when placed in low-light conditions. Since only the green parts of the leaves can make energy, the leaves will compensate for the lack of light by turning greener. Pale leaves that turn yellowish in color could indicate that your plant is getting too much light.
  • Pet Friendly: No
  • WaterKeep soil moist but be careful not to overwater. Easier said than done, right? Pothos do best when their soil can dry out between watering. To achieve this watering technique, allow only the top two inches to dry being sure that the roots are still moist. If the leaves are wilting or turning brown, you should water the plant more often. If the leaves are yellow, you may be watering it too much. Excessive watering may cause root rot.
    Do not allow your Pothos to stand in water unless it is a cutting started in water. Pothos can grow in water as well as soil, but they have a hard time switching from one growing medium to the other. A Pothos plant started in the soil will thrive best if continued to grow in soil, and vice versa.

  • Humidity: Medium
  • Temperature: Pothos can tolerate moderate temperatures ranging from 55º–80º F, however, they are tropical plants and so prefer high humidity and temperatures of 70º – 90º F.
