About Your Satin Pothos Scindapsus Pictus
Satin Pothos Plants are Perfect for Low Light
Satin Pothos Plants are an incredibly low maintenance houseplant, and is also known as Devil's Ivy because it is so difficult to kill. It is an excellent choice for first time houseplant buyers because it handles missed watering and minimal light without consequence. Satin Pothos has a tendency to trail and cascade, making it ideal for hanging baskets or containers in plant stands so it can cascade naturally. Satin Pothos Plants are known to remove toxins, specifically formaldehyde, benzene and xylene from the air indoors. For that reason, Pothos are on NASA's Clean Air List because it removes formaldehyde, xylene, and benzene from the air. This plant does best in fluorescent to bright, indirect light and likes to stay slightly moist but accepts a missed watering here or there.

Before you buy a Satin Pothos Scindapsus Plant Plant, make sure to read about the recommended care instructions to keep this plant healthy and thriving.
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. 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?
Satin Pothos Plants likes to stay slightly moist, not too wet or too dry. Too many yellow leaves means the plant is staying wet too often, whereas brown tips to the leaves means 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 before watering excessively.
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. 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. Any type of fertilizer offers nutrients that help plants with the transition to a new environment. All of these fertilizers may be used when planting Silver Satin Pothos indoors.
