MARBLE THE SCINDAPSUS PICTUS
Also known as the satin pothos, silver pothos or silver vine. The silver pothos is native to the Asian rainforests.
The satin pothos isn’t one to fuss and will be happy in all types of light. She is low light tolerant but also will be happy in a medium/filtered light. Lighting-wise she pairs perfectly with Eddie the golden pothos and Andy the Yucca.
Let the satin pothos's soil dry out a little before her next watering. She’s very drought tolerant and will forgive you if you forget to water her. If she is placed in a shady spot she will only need watering once every few weeks. It’s best to check her soil weekly and water when the first three inches are dry. Grab our stylish silver and white watering can to help keep him hydrated.

The silver pothos can tolerate temperatures between 15-30°C. As long as the indoor temperature doesn't dip lower than 15°C Mable will be happy.
The scindapsus pictus will push out a lot of new foliage all year round especially in a filtered sunny spot. Fertilise her with our vegan organic fertiliser or our fortifying houseplant fertiliser every 4 weeks in the months from March-September.
The silver pothos can be repotted yearly in the spring to promote faster and bigger growth. She’s a fast growing plant that will easily outgrown her original pot. Repot her in a potting mix filled with drainage materials such as perlite and bark. Check out our incredible peat free potting mix.
