The silvery dots and splashes on the green leaves of Scindapsus Pictus make for a very pretty, low maintenance hanging plant.
Size: 12cm diameter
Light: Bright indirect light
Watering: Allow the top 2-3 cm of the compost to dry between waterings when the plant is actively growing, usually from spring through autumn. Reduce watering frequency in winter if light levels are lower.
Feeding: Use half the recommended dose of a balanced liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks from spring through early autumn, or when you can see active growth.
Soil: Multipurpose/houseplant potting mix.
Troubleshooting: Crispy leaf tips may be a sign of low humidity in the air. Yellowing leaves may be a sign of overwatering.
Tip: This plant can be toxic if ingested, so we advise to keep it away from pets and children. Direct sunlight can leave sunburn marks on the leaves. Keep it away from drafts.
