Scindapsus Pictus Argyraeu, also known as Satin Pothos, is part of the Aracae family and falls under Scindapsus genus together with other two varieties: Silvery Anne and Exotica. Despite many common names it is not a Pothos nor a Philodendron however it is also a very hardy plant. One of the most sought after characteristics of Scindapsus Pictus Argyraeu is it’s foliage- matte green with silver splashes. Although the leaves look similar on all three varieties of Scindapsus, they do have a differentiating factor- Argyraeu’s leaves are smaller than its sister plants with much less of the silver markings.
