How do you take care of a Scindapsus?

The best location

The Scindapsus doesn’t mind a little more or less sunlight. Wherever you put that plant, it doesn’t care. As long as you stay away from direct sunlight. The handy thing about the Scindapsus is that it shows you whether the plant receives too much or too little light. If there is too little light, the leaves will turn even green, even if the plant actually had varied leaves. As soon as the Scindapsus gets too much light, it turns a bit colourful with many colour differences. In addition, the darker the location, the darker the leaf.

Watering the Scindapsus

It is best to give the Scindapsus a sip of water once a week. This keeps the soil of the plant always slightly moist. Something you make the Scindapsus very happy with! Do, however, avoid placing a layer of water in the flowerpot. If this is the case, the water cannot go anywhere and root rot will develop. How much water the Scindapsus needs depends on several factors. The size of the plant and flowerpot, but also the material of the plant and the location are very important for the watering. In winter you can scale up the watering from once a week to once every 1.5 to 2 weeks.

Plant nutrition

The Scindapsus consumes quite a lot of energy. It is therefore important to pamper the houseplant once every two weeks with plant food. For the amount of extra food, it is best to consult the leaflet for the plant food in question. We recommend only giving plant nutrition in spring and summer. As soon as you give a plant extra nourishment in the winter months, this energy can go nowhere, which can affect the plant.

Repotting

Repotting the Scindapsus is not necessary every year. However, we do recommend to provide the plant with a flowerpot that is at least 20% larger at the time of purchase. After this it is best to repot the plant once every 2 years. Do not only choose a larger pot, but also use fresh potting soil. The best period to repot the Scindapsus is spring. Roots can be damaged during repotting, and in spring the plant has enough energy to repair damage.

Air purifying function

Despite the fact that the leaf of the Scindapsus in the living room will not become 90 cm, the leaf is still very effective. According to NASA, the Scindapsus is one of the most air-purifying plants there is. During the day, the plant opens its stomata to convert CO2 into oxygen. Ideal!

Is the Scindapsus poisonous?

Fortunately, the Scindapsus is not poisonous to humans. Though it’s wise to pay close attention to pets. As soon as you notice that pieces of leaf have been eaten, it is best to contact a doctor. Pay close attention to conspicuous behaviour such as nausea.

Diseases and peculiarities

Good to know: the Scindapsus is a strong houseplant. The plant is therefore not susceptible to pests or diseases. However, it is important to maintain a good humidity level. As soon as the Scindapsus is (or hangs) near a heater, it is wise to spray it regularly with a plant sprayer. If pests are found on the plant you can use pesticides.
