Scindapsus treubii 'Dark Form'


We have run out of stock for this item.

The 'Dark Form' Scindapsus is highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts due to its unique dark foliage. It is believed to be a result of a genetic mutation that causes the leaves to have a darker green coloration.

Dark Form Scindapsus leaves are heart-shaped and have a glossy texture. They are typically larger and more elongated than the leaves of the standard Scindapsus plant. The leaves are a deep, rich green color that can vary from plant to plant, with some having a darker shade than others. The dark coloration of the leaves makes this plant stand out among other Scindapsus cultivars.

Like other Scindapsus plants, the Dark Form Scindapsus is relatively easy to care for. It can tolerate a range of lighting conditions from low to bright, indirect light, and prefers well-draining soil. It should be watered when the top inch of soil is dry, and it can benefit from occasional pruning to promote bushier growth and remove any damaged leaves.

Ed's Care Guide

  • 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.
