Satin Pothos (Silver Philodendron ): Care and Identification

Can you please identify my houseplant.

Hi Barbara,

Silver markings on green Satin Pothos

Satin Pothos Plant
Silver Philodendron

Your plant has several names: Satin Pothos, Pothos Silver Splash, Silver Philodendron or the scientific name Scindapus Pictus Argyraeus. The care for it is just as easy as the care for a regular Pothos plant.

Be careful not to over water, allow at least 50% of the soil to dry out and the leaves to droop a little before watering.

During the winter, keep your Satin Pothos away from cold drafts from doors and windows. Temperatures below 45°F cause the leaves to turn black.

Fertilize every two weeks in the spring and summer when the plant is actively growing and monthly in the fall and winter.

You can read all my plant care tips for Pothos Plants in the Popular HousePlant section of the website.

These plants are considered poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children. Read more about common houseplants that are poisonous in Don’t Feed Me To Your Cat! A Guide to Poisonous Houseplants
