About This Product

Scindapsus pictus 'Argyraeus', also known as Satin Pothos, Silk Pothos, or Silver Philodendron, is a slower growing vine that is a member of the Araceae family and native to Thailand and the Philippines.  It is a fairly common houseplant that does well in normal household environments but will appreciate higher than average humidity.  It's just as easy to grow as the very common Epipremnum aurem 'Golden Pothos', in which it is related.  This species features rounded-heart-shaped leaves that are dark-green with splashes of a silvery gray, which gives them their reflective sheen.  In time, it can easily grow to lengths of several feet long.  

USDA Hardiness Zone 10-11

Container Gardens/Terrariums/Houseplant:

Scindapsus pictus ‘Argyraeus’ is a very popular houseplant that does well in the average household environment. It should be kept in moderate lighting to maintain its color and should be kept away from drafts. It will tolerate and appreciate the top soil drying out between waterings. Due to the size of Scindapsus pictus ‘Argyraeus’, it is not recommended for container gardens or terrariums. It is often treated as any other pothos and grown in a hanging basket or being trained to grow along ledges or shelving in your home.


Vivariums/Animal Terrariums:

Scindapsus pictus ‘Argyraeus’ is a climbing vine that will grow to cover the background and hardscape. Due to it's fairly large, rounded leaves, it is a great plant for the naturalistic vivarium and will provide egg laying and calling sites for dart frogs. It will display its best colors under bright light, but will also grow just fine under dimmer lighting conditions. Suitable for a vivarium, it does not require any air circulation to thrive. Since it can be sometimes sensitive to soggy soil, it is imperative to have good drainage in your vivarium to ensure the long-term health of this plant.


Josh's Frogs offers a wide variety of glass terrariums, container garden soils, drainage layers and other supplies for all of your indoor gardening needs.

As good practice, Josh's Frogs recommends washing all plants thoroughly removing as much soil as possible with dechlorinated water before placing them in their final home. Plants from Josh’s Frogs are specifically grown to be safe for use with animals. Live plants may vary in color, size and appearance.



The plant pictured is in a 2.25” pot.

Pretty plant but handle with care, toxic plant. Keep away from children and pets.

This is a very toxic plant. Wash your hands after handling it.
