Silver Philodendron

Scindapsus pictus
Like its name implies, this vining beauty grows heart-shaped leaves that are silky smooth to the touch.

Low Maintenance

A ten day surf trip to Bali is still in the cards. Water before leaving and you're jet set.

Any Indirect Light

This plant will do fine in low light levels but grows best in medium or bright filtered light.

Indestructible

Yep, even a neglectful, black thumb like yours will manage to keep this one alive.

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 Satin 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.

Size will vary, but total height is about 10 inches and planter width is 6 inches.

How to not kill me

Watering

Water once a week

If that's too hard then we suggest getting a pet rock. When the top inch of soil is bone dry. Droopy leaves is a sign it needs water, while yellowing leaves mean it's getting too much.

Sunlight

Low to Bright Indirect

Almost as adaptable and versatile as Bill Murray, this plant can handle most indoor lighting situations, but definitely prefers it to be on the brighter side. It should never be exposed to direct light.

Humidity

Slays in high humidity

It comes from the tropics so mist it frequently with a spray bottle, or use a humidifier to amp up the moisture in your space. It'll thank you by looking good and staying alive.
