Scindapsus pictus 'Argyraeus'.
We are so excited to bring these sustainably grown plants to you.
The plants are grown in a UK nursery, using peat free soil and in their very own biodegradable coir plant pot by the very talented Harriets Plants. Completely plastic free!
The Scindapsus pictus 'Argyraeus' is a delightful trailing plant that will look stunning on a shelf or in a hanging pot. With heart shaped satin leaves that have a slight shimmer to them when they catch the light, this plant is a real beauty.
The Scindapsus enjoys indirect light so keep away from really bright spots in your house and this plant will thrive.
This plant really hates being overwater, ideally the soil should be dry before watering again. Stick your fingers in the soil and if its dry down to at least two inches then you can give this one a good soak.
Hard to kill?
8/10 - An easy to care for plant which gives you a good indication when its not happy - yellowing leaves tend to be a sign of overwatering and curled up leaves are a sign of underwatering.
How to pot.
The coir pot is completely biodegradable. We suggest keeping the plant in its coir pot for its first year. These can sit inside decorative pots or directly onto a saucer. The roots will start to grow through the pot so when you come to upgrade to a bigger size pot in spring you can add soil around the coir pot and it will continue to grow happily.
If you do want to remove the coir pot make sure to do this carefully. Cut the pot away, gently remove any roots that have attached and then pot into its new pot. The coir pot can then be recycled as it is biodegradable.
