Scindapsus Silver Lady
Scindapsus Pictus Silver Lady
If you want a vining plant that is easy to grow but want something a bit showier and distinct, then Scindapsus Pictus Silver Lady is the plant for you! It is a cinch to grow so lets talk about how to care for this gorgeous houseplant.
Scindapsus Pictus ‘Silver Lady’ leaves are large & narrower which are covered with green sheen with silver speckling or splashes on the remaining portion.The leaf looks like green variegation on Silver Leaf.
These plants thrive in bright indirect light. A little bit of sun would work too, but in general, they don’t like a lot of direct sun. A bit of morning sun would work well though. Morning sun in gentler than afternoon sun.
For best growth and health, place these plants close to a bright window. Within 1-2 feet of a window that gets bright, indirect light. A large Northern window or Eastern window would be ideal.
Too little light would slow down the growth dramatically, as well as lose the beautiful variegation, whereas too much direct sun would scorch the leaves.
If you have very sunny Western or Southern windows, consider moving the plant just a bit back so it doesn’t receive too much sun, or diffuse the light with blinds or a sheer curtain.
Water throughly until water exits the drainage hole(s) and discard the excess water. Don’t water again until the top inch or so of the potting mix dries out. Even if you forget about your plant a few times and let it go too dry, it is pretty forgiving as long as you don’t completely forget about it!
One common symptom of the soil getting too dry is that you will see all the leaves start curling under. If you notice this, feel the soil. Chances are it is bone dry. Give it a good watering and it will recover. Another issue that you may see if the soil goes completely dry for a while is that the lower leaves will turn yellow. Simply take the yellow leaf off and give the plant a good watering if the soil is really dry.
For most houseplants, if you are comfortable in your indoor conditions (temperature and humidity), then your houseplants will be comfortable too. Average indoor humidity of at least 45-50% is fine. If you find that your indoor air is too dry (especially in winter if you used forced air heat), it would be a great idea to get a good humidifier.
You can fertilize all year except during the winter. Use 1/4″ teaspoon per gallon of water every time you water. You will really notice a difference with a quality fertilizer. Plants grow better, are more vigorous and flowering houseplants also produce more flowers.
