George is the silver fox of houseplants: charismatic, easy-growing, and gets better with age. Like his name implies, this vining beauty grows heart-shaped leaves that are silky smooth to the touch with stunning specks of silver variegation to make any passerby swoon.
Low to bright indirect light. Direct light will burn his leaves.
Water around once a week.
Toxic to pets if ingested.
Can be trained to climb up or trail down.
Forgiving and low maintenance—a perfect fit for new plant parents.
Pro-tip: To propagate, cut a piece at least 6″ long and place in water in bright light. Roots will grow in a week.
Not technically a pothos but similar in personality, this climbing plant has roots in Southeast Asia. It lives on tree trunks in the tropics, thus its penchant for bright but filtered light.
Like a true pothos, the silver scindapsus can adapt to slightly lower light but it risks losing its iridescence and shine. As it matures, expect its leaves to evolve in shape and scale.
Small: Around 6 inches tall with a container width of 4 inches.
Medium: Around 10 inches tall with a container width of 6 inches.
Size will vary.
