Scindapsus pictus 'Exotica'
Scindapsus pictus 'Exotica' is a vigorous vining plant whose light green foliage is speckled with silvery, reflective variegation. The heart-shaped leaves are velvety to the touch and quite matte in texture, which is perhaps why the plant is also known by the common names Philodendron Silver and Satin Pothos (though botanically it is neither Philodendron nor Pothos). This large-leafed cultivar of Scindapsus pictus shows more intense variegation than the standard type, covering anywhere from 60-90% of the leaf. Eventually, its vines grow quite long, making Scinapsus pictus a great choice for hanging planters.
• Light: Low to bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when the top 1-2" of soil dries out
• Considerations: Cold sensitive; take care that temperatures don't drop below 55 degrees

I had a wish list of plants that I wanted to add to my plant family this year. The Exotica was one of those plants. I couldn't believe that I was finally going to get one. A leaf or two has some browning underneath--so far the leaves are fine. It took quite a bit of time to ship, but it was worth the wait.
