Satin Pothos (Scindapsus pictus), also known as Silk or Silver Pothos, is an easy-to-grow evergreen tropical vine found in warm and humid regions of Southeast Asia. It attaches to surfaces through its aerial roots and has a vining or climbing habit. Satin Pothos features striking heart-shaped leaves with silvery markings. 

Best Locations For Growing Satin Pothos

Because of its natural vining nature, place it in an area where it can trail or climb such as next to a moss stick or in a hanging basket. Satin Pothos needs warmth and humidity, within a temperature range from 65 - 85 degrees F and at least 50% humidity.  It is not a cold-tolerant plant, so avoid placing it near cold drafts in winter. 

Satin Pothos Sunlight Requirements

Protect Satin Pothos from direct sunlight. Place it in a location that gets plenty of bright but indirect light. If Satin Pothos is in a lower light environment, the foliage may start to lose some of its silvery markings. 

Satin Pothos Care

Plant it in a well-draining, nutrient-rich potting mix. Satin Pothos does not enjoy being in wet, soggy soil, so be sure the potting mix contains plenty of peat or perlite. This plant prefers a soil pH between 6.1 to 6.5. You can snip off any dried or damaged leaves with a sharp pair of scissors, or prune the length of your Satin Pothos should its vines become too leggy. By giving it a trim, the plant will become fuller and bushier. If you notice the leaves becoming dusty, you can gently wipe both sides with warm water. Repotting can be done once every two years, but if you see its roots trying to escape from the pot's drainage holes, it's time to give it a larger home. Propagation can be done with stem-tip cuttings, placed in a potting soil mix. 

Watering Satin Pothos

Avoid overwatering. Water only when the top 2 inches of soil feel dry, and always feel the soil to check. Water with room temperature water until it drains out of the bottom of the pot. 

Feeding Satin Pothos

You can fertilize Satin Pothos once a month during its growing season with a water-soluble, balanced houseplant fertilizer.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability).

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
