What is the best light for Satin Pothos Plants?

What is the best light for Satin Pothos Plants?

Satin Pothos Plants perform well in fluorescent light like office buildings or atriums or anywhere away from direct light. They can handle the bright, indirect light found in a northern or partially shaded eastern windowsill. Western or southern exposure would work as long as the plant is away from the window or the window is well shaded.

What is the best soil for Satin Pothos Plants?

Satin Pothos Plants do best in soil that stays slightly moist. A regular potting mix works well, try to keep the soil from drying out too much that it compacts, as it can be difficult to rehydrate. Satin Pothos Plants also does well if grown exclusively in water without soil.

How do I water Satin Pothos Plants?

How do I water Satin Pothos Plants?

Satin Pothos Plants likes to stay slightly moist, not too wet or too dry. Too many yellow leaves mean the plant is staying wet too often, whereas brown leaf tips mean it has been kept too dry. They recover well from drying out occasionally. It generally takes a long time, but Pothos will wilt if not watered enough, making it clear when the plant absolutely needs water. Wilting can also be caused by the plant staying too wet; check the soil condition and water when the top inch of soil is dry.

How do I fertilize Satin Pothos Plants?

How do I fertilize Satin Pothos Plants?

In general, Satin Pothos Plants do not require much fertilizer. Fertilizer is recommended only for plants potted in the same container for a long time to provide nutrients for new growth. Fertilize in the spring and summer when the plant is growing (and not dormant). Any all-purpose, foliage fertilizer will work for Silver Satin Pothos. Indoor houseplant fertilizers fall into two groups: water-soluble, liquid quick release, and granular, slow-release fertilizers. Jack's Classic Indoor plant food works well as a powder, quick release fertilizer that is mixed with water to quickly provide nutrients to a plant that has been in a container for an extended time. Osmocote Indoor/Outdoor is an option as a granular, slow-release fertilizer that can be applied while potting and planting.

Satin Pothos Plants are known to remove toxins, specifically formaldehyde, benzene and xylene from the air indoors, according to NASA's clean air plants list. This plant does best in fluorescent to bright, indirect light and likes to stay slightly moist but accepts a missed watering here or there.
