ABOUT OUR SCINDAPSUS PICTUS
Hello, I’m Marble! I’m quite a thing of beauty, wouldn’t you agree? Although my silvery toned foliage looks hard to handle, I can confirm I’m much easier to care for than you might think. Take my names for example, they’re simple and straight to the point: silver pothos, satin pothos and silver vine, which describe me down to a T. There’s no fuss when it comes to me - only pure silvery joy.
I hail from countries far and wide but mostly you can find me in the subtropics of Asia and Polynesia. I love warm temperatures and the filtered sun I receive from deep in the rainforests helps to protect my lovely variegated foliage from burning. I’m a fast-growing vine and will climb and attach myself to any surface I find. If my long luscious foliage grows out of control, you can cut my vines back and make another plant out of my cuttings - yay, mini Marbles!
Allow my climbing vines to do all the hard work in making your home or office sparkle as I make my way up the moss pole planted in my pot. I’m certain my silvery shine will be a spectacular addition to your indoor jungle.
Small height (including nursery pot) 45-55cm; pot diameter 15cm.

Marble is sure to unfurl new foliage at a rate of knots. She’ll soon by climbing all the way up her moss pole and delighting you with her exquisite leaves.

THINGS WE ALWAYS GET ASKED
How do you take care of a Scindapsus Pictus?
The Scindapsus pictus is very easy to look after and will thrive in the majority of indoor environments. She’s a tropical plant and prefers warmer temperatures of above 20°C but you’ll know if she’s unhappy as her leaves will begin to curl if she’s stressed from the cold.
Keep Marble in a place full of light but nothing direct that will burn her leaves. Any low lighting could cause her to lose some variegation, but she will still survive - if look a little less beautiful. To avoid any crisp leaves, keep Marble’s environment humid by placing her in the bathroom or by a humidifier.
Why are my Scindapsus pictus leaves curling?
Marble will start to curl her leaves to let you know that she is a little thirsty. A thorough drink will help her leaves return back to their original state. It’s also good to check Marble’s environment and make sure she isn’t placed near a chilly window or frequently used door as she can curl her leaves if stressed from the cold.
Do Satin Pothos like humidity?
Yes; because she’s native to the rainforest, Marble prefers higher levels of humidity. Normal household humidity is usually between 30% and 40% but Marble prefers humidity levels of over 50%. To increase the humidity in your home, you can use a humidifier or try a pebble tray underneath her pot.
PLANT STYLING TIPS
Marble’s upward vines will look magnificent in any bright bathroom. She also boasts the perfect figure thanks to her moss pole, which means she can be added to the hallway or landing and won’t get in the way or take up any precious space.
