A relative of Devils Ivy, Satin Pothos has large, heart-shaped matte green leaves with silvery-white splotches and edges. It is more compact than its cousin and makes a beautiful hanging plant, with an elegant, satin sheen. It can be trained to grow along the edges of shelves.
Other common names include Silver Vine, Silver Cloud, Silk Pothos, and Silver Philodendron. In Latin, it also goes by the name Scindapsus Pictus Argyraeus (particularly in Europe). Pictus means 'painted' and is a reference to its lovely silvery variegation.
