Scindapsus Pictus 'Silver Splash'

Description

The 'Silver Splash' Scindapsus is a popular cultivar with green, heart-shaped leaves with prominent silver markings. The silver markings on the leaves vary in size and shape, ranging from speckles and blotches to streaks and stripes. The leaves are glossy and have a satin-like texture. They typically grow to around 2-4 inches long and 1-3 inches wide.

Silver Splash Scindapsus can tolerate low to bright, indirect light conditions and doesn't require frequent watering. It thrives in well-draining soil and prefers to dry out between watering. The lack of coddling makes this a perfect plant for houseplant newbies!

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:  40-60% relative humidity 
  • 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 3 ft or more
  • Common Pests: Mostly resilient to pests
