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.

Satin Pothos is not truly a Pothos, but is easy to care for and seems to have all the pros that Pothos have. Bonnie had three leaves when I bought her less than a month ago; now there are six and a new one is sprouting. She’s not a glamour queen - just adorably cute.
This plant is constantly putting out new growth and loves to climb. The leaves do curl when it wants more moisture but overall it’s very easy to care for. I keep mine in about ~80% humidity 5” away from grow lights and it’s been doing very well. I also added a layer about an inch deep of spagnum moss on top of the soil to help with higher moisture
So, first of all, this isn’t technically a pothos - though it has similar care to pothos. The main reason this difference matters in my opinion is that the silver satin is a little harder to propagate. Not exactly difficult but I’ve had slightly less success than I do with regular pothos.
Some of my leaves are browning quite a bit but I’m sure that my environment isn’t humid enough. I have a pebble tray that I keep water in for it but I think I’ll end up getting a humidifier. Other than that, this plant seems to be getting decent light near an east facing window.
Still learning about the Satin Pothos. We got this from our local nursery. The leaves alternate between flat and curly. We may repot and pin it. Otherwise it’s produced 2 leaves and we’re seeing new growth still. Hopefully a little tlc this winter we’ll see more growth and a happy plant.
