Epipremnum Pictum Argyraeus
Large, heart-shaped satin leaves with white markings makes this one of the more beautiful members of the Pothos family. A vigorous, easy-to-care-for plant - just keep out of direct sunlight and don't overwater. Great in a hanging pot or just let it trail from a shelf - the trails can grow up to 3m in length!
I have large, heart shaped satin green leaves with large silvery-white splotches. Don't mistake me for a Sweetheart Philodendron, my leaves have a less exaggerated point and are variegated with more subtlety.
Growing pot size: 12cm
Overall plant height including growing pot: 12-15cm
Pets: Harmful to pets
Useful to know:
My trails can grow as long as 3 metres and I'm fairly fast growing, so a good choice if you want to add a touch of whimsical drama to your home.
Keep me in a moderately well lit room; not shady but not in bright light either.
Wait until I'm slightly dry before watering; too much will cause my delicate roots to rot. Consider misting my leaves instead.
I like to be kept warm but can cope with about 15°C for short periods.
Apply a weak general purpose fertiliser during the summer.
If I'm getting too gangly, cut back straggly ends and I should grow more consistently.
I like a little humitidty. If the tips of my leaves are browning, it could be because the room I'm in is too dry. This can be resolved by popping me on top of a tray with damp pebbles.
Keep me away from pets and children.
I'm sometimes called 'Scindapsus pictus Argyraeus'. Pictus means 'painted' and is a reference to my silvery variegation.
