What other plant parents say
I Iove the effect of the silvery splotches against the dark leaves, and the satin “finish”. It’s a vining plant and grew well during the spring and summer. I took cuttings that easily grew roots in…
So I have had a bit of trouble with this plant :( I brought it about 7 months ago and it recently put out a new leaf but it was very leggy, so I gave it a chop and put it in water and it hasn’t roote…

This is my favorite plant ever. I love it so much. It is a gorgeous plant with the dark green leaves contrasted nicely with the soft silvery spotting. I currently have 10 cuttings propagating right …
I have had this plants for a few weeks and I can already tell it’s super happy where I put it. It’s pushed out a few leaves and has more on the way. Excited to watch it grow and get bigger
This plant is a big baby about direct sunlight. The leaves burn up so fast in the sun, but lose their variegation if they don’t get enough bright light. It’s so gorgeous and fun, though!
The most gorgeous pothos to have ever existed. Obsessed with the unique leaves. Only downside is pet safety if you have a naughty nibbler, but that’s what hanging baskets are for right?
Slow grower Likes to dry out in my experience Does not like direct or extremely bright light. I keep mine adjacent to my western window where it gets indirect afternoon sun.
This is the epitome of a low maintenance plant. It’s a pothos so basically all you need to give is some light and some water it’s grows like crazy and always looks good.
How to care for Satin Pothos
Satin Pothos needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.
Use our water calculator to personalize watering recommendations to your environment or download Greg for more advanced recommendations for all of your plants.
Satin Pothos may have difficulty thriving, and will drop leaves 🍃, without ample sunlight.
Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.
Select your city to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Satin Pothos in your home 🏡.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Satin Pothos after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
