Pot diameter

Scindapsus pictus originates from Malaysia to Indonesia but is a popular houseplant in much of Europe. It is an easy-care climber with aerial roots that form due to its natural growth being epiphytic (in the wild it grows upwards on tree trunks but is also known to trail along the forest floor). A stunning plant with soft ‘leathery’ leaves with silver markings. In fact, the Latin ‘pictus’ means painted, referring to the silver variegation on the leaves. This variegation is known as blister variegation (this is where an air pocket exists between the top layer of the leaf and the chlorophyll) which reflects the sunlight, creating a shimmery silver appearance. This fast growing evergreen climber can be hung or trailed and can grow up to 4-10 feet long.

RATING- Moderate- Easy

LOVES- Misting, Water liberally from spring-autumn and reduce in the winter months

HATES- Direct sunlight-the variegated leaf patterns will fade. Keep in a well-lit but sunless spot

Pot diameters available

15cm hanging pot, 17cm on moss pole
