The Scindapsus Pictus 'Argyraeus' is a relative newcomer to nurseries and is growing in popularity due to it's unique foliage and relative ease of care. 'Argyraeus' is recognized by small, heart-shaped leaves that are dark-green in color and spotted with silvery gray variegation, giving them a satin sheen. The leaves are velvety to the touch and satin in texture.  Although they can tolerate low light conditions, this plant thrives in indirect bright to medium light.  Eventually, its vines grow long, making Scinapsus a great choice for hanging baskets.

Ed's Care Guide

  • Care Level: Easy
  • Light: Prefers bright to medium indirect light. Direct sunlight will scorch its leaves, and too-little light will result in slow growth and the leaves to lose variegation
  • Water: Water thoroughly and allow the top 1-2in of soil dry out between watering. The plant will let you know it's thirsty when the foliage begins to droop. Water less frequently in winter
  • Humidity: 60-80% 
  • Temperature: 60-85F. Avoid cold drafts
  • Pruning: Prune as needed to remove brown or dead leaves
  • Feeding:  Fertilize monthly during spring and summer with water-soluble fertilizer diluted by half.
  • Propagation: Stem Cuttings
  • Growth: Trails to 3 ft or more
  • Common Pests: Mostly resilient to pests
