Scindapsus Pictus, 'Exotica'


Scindapsus, pictus 'exotica' is a vigorous vining vining plant with heart shaped velvety leaves speckled with silvery, reflective variegation. This large-leafed cultivar of Scindapsus pictus shows more intense variegation than the standard type, covering anywhere from 60-90% of the leaf. Oddly enough, it's often called Satin Pothos, Silver Pothos, or Philodendron Silver, although this plant doesn’t belong to either species. Its botanical name refers to the silver “painted” effect on the gray-green variegated leaves. Eventually, its vines grow quite long, making it a great choice for hanging planters.
