Below is a general care guide for Satin Pothos which can slightly differ depending on variety.
Light & Temperature
Satin Pothos prefer bright, indirect light. It is quite tolerant to lower light conditions but it may start to lose its striking leaf markings.
This plant prefers warm temperatures. They do not like being exposed to cold air as it will damage its foliage.
Watering, Humidity & Misting
Water your Satin Pothos once the top 1-3 inches of the soil has dried out. It can withstand under watering but it is much less tolerant of overwatering. It will also show you when it’s thirsty by its curling or droopy leaves.
Satin Pothos thrives in humid tropical climates of its origin, so for it to grow healthy indoors, it requires those humid conditions being replicated. If the air is dry, mist the plant regularly to boost humidity or use a pebble tray of humidifier.
Soil and Repotting
Use all-purpose houseplant potting mix. Repot your Satin Pothos when the plant outgrows its pot. It has a relatively quick rate of growth so you will probably need to repot to freshen the soil and encourage healthy new growth once a year.
Take at least 4-5 inches of tip cuttings and insert them into moist potting mix. Cuttings root quickly in about a month.
Use a balanced fertiliser formulated for houseplants. Follow the directions on the label of our Down to Earth. organic plant food.
Satin Pothos are toxic if ingested and should be kept out of the reach of children and pets.
Under the right care and conditions, your plant will grow happy and healthy. But here are some issues you may encounter while caring for a Satin Pothos:
Spider mites and scales - When spotted, treat immediately with a neem oil.
Black and mushy stems and foliage - This is roots rotting. Take out your plant from its container and remove any affected roots and stems. Repot the remaining healthy parts in a clean container with fresh soil.
Brown leaves - This can be caused by too much sun or too little humidity. Adjust your care and conditions given to the plant.
Yellowing leaves - Probably a sign that you are overwatering your Satin Pothos. Allow the soil to partially dry out between waterings.
