The Scindapsus pictus Silvery Ann is a robust and generous vine whose thick, velvety green and silver leaves shimmer with an iridescent glow on sunny days. As this easy going plant matures, its foliage becomes more iridescent, sometimes producing leaves which are almost totally silver, which is sure to make your visitors a little envious.

A super versatile plant that would be great as a gift or for a beginner as they are very easy going

Light: Moderate light levels. Give Scindapsus pictus bright, indirect light year-round. Harsh direct sunlight will scorch its leaves, while too-little light will cause the leaves to lose their variegation.

WaterWater thoroughly and allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. Keep soil barely moist in winter. Yellow leaves are a symptom of overwatering. Always use room-temperature water when watering houseplants an provide good drainage.
Temperature: Happy in room temperatures from 15-24°C.

Humidity: Prefers increased levels of humidity but will tolerate normal conditions.

Feed: Apply a weak general purpose fertiliser during the summer. 

Toxicity: Mildly toxic to humans, harmful to pets. Keep away from children and animals.

Origin: Southeast Asia.

Other: common names include Silver Vine, Silver Cloud, Silk Pothos and Silver Philodendron. In Latin, it also goes by the name Scindapsus pictus Argyraeus (particularly in Europe). Pictus means 'painted' and is a reference to its lovely silvery variegation.

Interesting Scindapsus Facts: Scindapsus pictus varieties express a type of variegation called blister or reflective. This variegation is produced by air pockets forming between the outer leaf layer and the inner leaf layer (where chlorophyll is present). The air pockets create a shimmer when light reflects off of them.
