Plant Know-How: Scindapsus picture 'Silvery Ann'

silvery ann close
Scindapsus pictus is a species that has been in cultivation for a long time. You've probably seen the cultivars "Argyraeus" and "Exotica" at your local plant store, but you may be less familiar with "Silvery Ann". Scindapsus pictus "Silvery Ann" is a fairly new cultivar that resembles "Argyraeus" in leaf size but displays irregular, large splashes of silvery variegation on its leaves. This silvery type of variegation is what is known as blister variegation. Unlike the variegation in other plants such as Pothos or Monstera, blister variegation is caused by the epidermis and lower layer of the leaf separating causing air pockets to form. The silvery affect we see on these leaves is actually light reflecting off of these air pockets! The care for Scindapsus pictus 'Silvery Ann' is practically identical to the care for its counterparts, and is over all a very easy going plant. Wether you're a seasoned plant parent or a newbie, we have some tips here to help care for your plant!

CARE TIPS:

Light: Scindapsus pictus 'Silvery Ann' does well in medium to bright indirect light. If grown in medium or lower light the leaves may be less silvery.

Water: Water your Scindapsus pictus 'Silvery Ann' when about 3/4ths of the soil has gone dry. Scindapsus pictus 'Silvery Ann' is a plant that makes it very obvious when it is thirsty. When the soil has gone dry the leaves will begin to curl inwards. If your plant begins to do this simply give it a good soak and they'll perk right back up!

Did you know? Scindapsus pictus is naturally a shingling plant. This means that in the wild Scindapsus pictus grows climbing up tree trunks with its leaves pressed flat against the tree. When not given any structure to climb Scindpasus pictus grows as the hanging plant we're used to seeing it as. If you want to try to replicate its shingling behavior give it a moss pole to climb!
