        FAQ about Scindapsus Pictus Exotica Care:

        • What’s the difference between the Scindapsus Pictus Exotica vs Satin Pothos? Funny story: they’re the same thing! There are quite a few varieties of Scindapsus Pictus that are labeled as the “Satin Pothos.” You’ll have your work cut out for you choosing just one!

        • Is Scindapsus a Pothos? No, while they are cousins on the plant-family tree, Scindapsus and Epipremnum (aka Pothos) are two separate gena.

        • What’s the difference between the Scindapsus Pictus vs Epipremnum? As you’ve already gathered, these two “gena” are related but different. Scindapsus Pictus has dark green leaves with silver variegation (the leaf size and amount of variegation depend on the cultivar you select). “Epipremnum” is the scientific name for “Pothos,” which come in all types of shapes, sizes, and colors (just not that addictive silver). While both are easy-care plants, the Scindapsus requires higher levels of light and more frequent watering.
