Overview

Satin Pothos is a plant of the Arum family, and native to Southeast Asia. A beautifully variegated plant, it’s one of the easiest houseplants to grow. Fairly new to plant nurseries, Satin Pothos has gained a lot of attention due to its big, heart-shaped leaves splashed with striking green and silver-gray colours.

They have a satin-like appearance that makes for a striking display in your home or office. Its compact and fast-growing vines make it a beautiful hanging basket plant.

Cold Sensitivity

Satin Pothos is quite intolerant of cold temperatures due to its tropical origins, and it is advised to not expose it to cold temperatures even for a short while.

Pothos are good for you!

Satin Pothos has been studied and recommended by NASA's Clean Air Study for its air purifying attributes, making it a household essential for its air-purifying qualities. 

PlantX top tip: Your plant will benefit from occasional pruning, which helps it to branch out and become fuller. Spring is the best time to cut it back. Use sharp pruners to avoid tearing the stems.

How to care for your Satin Pothos

  • Light: Medium to low bright indirect sunlight
  • Water: Medium watering
  • Soil: All-purpose houseplant potting mix
  • Intolerances: Bright direct sunlight, low temperatures
  • Fertilizer: Fertilise monthly spring through fall with a water-soluble fertilizer diluted by half. 
  • Humidity: 40-50% relative humidity 
  • Temperature: 18-29°C; Don't expose to temperatures below 16°C
  • pH: 6.1-6.5
  • Propagation: Take 10 cm tip cuttings in spring or early summer and insert them into moist peat moss-based potting mix. 
  • Repotting: Repot in spring (when the plant outgrows its pot), using a pot only 5cm bigger
  • Toxicity: Mildly toxic; toxic to dogs, cats, and horses

Satin Pothos-Common Problems

Pale yellow leaves

Pale leaves that turn yellowish in color could indicate that your plant is getting too much light. Move your plant to a shadier area, as too much sunlight might end up scorching the leaves.

Brown/black spots on leaves

Pothos leaves turn brown due to overwatering, too much light, or leaf spot disease. Too much fertilizer can also cause brown spots and brown leaf tips in pothos. To fix the brown spots and tips, let the upper 25% of the soil dry out before watering and provide bright indirect light.

Wilting and drooping leaves

This can be a sign of underwatering and is further characterized by the soil pulling away from the outsides of the pot and stunted growth. To avoid this, make sure to water your Pothos every 1-2 weeks.

Dark coloured bumps on stem and leaves

This is an indication of mealybugs and scale infestation. In high infestations, the leaves will become distorted and stunted. This is treated by using a cotton swab dipped in alcohol to kill the pests.

Common Pests: Mealybugs, scales, spider mites

FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions

Should you mist the Satin Pothos plant?

You can mist the plant to increase humidity with room temperature water several times weekly, but make sure to not go overboard with it.

When should I water my Satin Pothos?

Feel the soil and only water your Pothos when the top 50% of the soil feels dry. 

Will pruning help my Pothos plant grow?

Regular and timely pruning will help stimulate new growth and can help to thicken foliage.
