I’ve been an indoor gardener for 30+ years and thought I’d share one of the best performing, easiest care houseplants I’ve experienced. It’s in the pothos family called Scindapsis pictus ‘Silver Satin’. You can purchase it growing up a totem, or as a hanging basket usually. I prefer growing it in a decorative pot with a very attractive obelisk to weave the stems in and out of.
It doesn’t really ‘climb’ but is pliable and easy to weave around/through the obelisk. Beautiful blue/jade thick leaves. It tolerates low light and is more drought tolerant than other plants, perfect for those who travel a lot.
I featured it in my houseplant article in Fine Gardening magazine.
One of the most reliable plants to give as a house/apt/office warming gifts. You’ll be setting the lucky recipient up for green thumb success!
