It has been a while since I shared a plant of the week, so I thought I would show off my four year old’s favorite – “Daisy”, our silver satin pothos! Daisy has been in our home for 9 months now, and she is just THRIVING! She grows quickly and has some of the most beautiful foliage of any of my plants. Here are some details on her!
Latin name: Scindapsus pictus argyraeus
Other names: satin pothos, satin Ann pothos
Where to purchase this plant: Sometimes you can get lucky and find these in big box stores like your local Lowe’s or Wal Mart! But if you want to buy online from a great small business, I highly recommend California Tropicals. If you shop by clicking this link or enter the code JENNASTOPREADING at checkout, you get 10% off at their store. They have a 4″ pot for $22.99 (free shipping!) and a 6″ pot for $45.99 They send beautiful, healthy plants for affordable prices!
Light level required: medium to bright indirect light
Water level required: Moderate water. Pothos want to dry out between watering, and can tolerate extreme drying out better than overwatering.
Care level required: minimal/easy care.
Why I love this plant: I’ve found this plant to be super easygoing and fun to watch! My four year old loves looking at the new leaves every week.
Sister/cousin plants: marble queen pothos, neon pothos, jade pothos, pearls and jade pothos, satin pothos, , scindapsus pictus exotica, and the pothos n joy all have very similar requirements.
