This is my first scindapsus. So I’m constantly learning. So far so good. I had to repot because he was growing mushrooms (didn’t know that was and indoor plant thing). But care is fairly easy. Bright indirect light, water regularly, give a turn once in a while. We’ve already got a vine growing and I can’t wait for more.

Pictures don’t really do this plant justice, tbh. Very pretty and almost shiny in person.
