- The Scindapsus Treubii, are famous yet rare indoor plants popularly grown for ‘vintage looking’ foliage.
- In nature, these plants crawl on the ground until they find a host tree to climb upon and flourish.
- While they stay on the host tree, the leaves get bigger in size with a thinner shape.
- Curbing their climbing nature indoors, they would love to grow around support like a brass sphagnum pole.
- Scindapsus is flowering Aroids, the majority of which are epiphytic creepers.
- Southeast Asia, New Guinea, Queens Land, and some areas of the western Pacific islands are the origin of these plants.
- These plants are grown on a large scale for commercial selling purposes.
- Moreover, hybridization is performed to create more unique plant varieties.
- Scindapsus has a close resemblance to its sister genus Epipremnum.
- Both the genera have many members who are pretty hard to differentiate by appearance.
- They are not picky with soil, a regular houseplant mix can be used but if you want to nitpick you can add some perlite to the soil for aeration.
- A fast-draining mix is always the best option to avoid waterlogging and root rot.
- A monthly or a diluted weekly dose of suitable houseplant fertilizer is good in the growing season.
- You can use a diluted form of 20-10-10 fertilizer.
- It likes bright indirect light which makes it a perfect candidate for an east-facing window or further away from a south-facing window.
- They will tolerate small periods of direct light but will start to grow very slowly and fade in color if placed in a dark place.
- You should allow the plant to dry out completely before watering.
- Much like a succulent it doesn't need to be drenched all the time and won't mind a bit of neglect watering-wise.
- When it does get thirsty though it will show you so with its leaves curling.
