    Description: Scindapsus pictus 'Exotica', commonly known as Satin Pothos 'Exotica', is a stunning tropical plant known for its large, heart-shaped leaves adorned with silvery variegation. The lush, dark green leaves have a velvety texture with prominent silver splashes and edges, creating a striking and elegant appearance. Native to Southeast Asia, this plant thrives indoors, adding a touch of exotic beauty and lush greenery to homes and offices. Satin Pothos 'Exotica' is a versatile plant that can trail, climb, or be grown as a bushy plant, making it an excellent choice for adding visual interest to various settings.

    Care Instructions:


    • Prefers bright, indirect light to maintain its vibrant variegation. Can tolerate lower light conditions but may lose some of its variegation. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves.


    • Water thoroughly when the top inch of soil is dry. Scindapsus 'Exotica' prefers consistently moist soil but not waterlogged. Reduce watering in the winter months when the plant's growth slows.


    • Thrives in moderate to high humidity environments. Regular misting or using a humidity tray can help maintain the necessary moisture levels, especially in dry indoor conditions.


    • Prefers temperatures between 65°F and 85°F (18°C - 29°C). Protect from cold drafts and temperatures below 60°F (16°C).


    • Use a well-draining, rich organic potting mix. A mix containing peat moss, perlite, and compost works well to support healthy growth.


    • Feed with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce feeding in the fall and winter.


    • Remove any dead or damaged leaves to encourage new growth and keep the plant healthy. Pruning helps maintain the plant's shape and promotes a fuller growth habit.

    • Focal Point: Place Scindapsus 'Exotica' in a prominent spot where its lush, variegated foliage can be admired. Its striking appearance makes it a captivating statement piece in any room.
    • Hanging Baskets: Grow Scindapsus 'Exotica' in hanging baskets to showcase its trailing vines and beautiful leaves. Its cascading habit makes it perfect for elevated displays.

    • Grouping with Other Plants: Combine with other tropical plants like Monsteras, Philodendrons, and Pothos to create a diverse and visually appealing indoor jungle.
    • Climbing Accent: Use a trellis or moss pole to support Scindapsus 'Exotica' as a climbing plant, adding vertical interest and a tropical vibe to your indoor garden.
