Growing Scindapsus Aureus ‘Pothos ‘N’ Joy’

I recently was given this beautiful hanging basket plant. I’m not sure whether I will keep it in the basket or convert it to a pole plant; however, I need to know the proper care of this special plant. The leaves are variegated with more white than green.

It needs the same basic care as a regular pothos, with one exception in that it will need more sunlight. Heavily variegated plants cannot produce as much energy from their leaves as their all green counterparts, so they need more light. So, unlike a normal pothos, this one will need medium light.

Most garden supply centers that sell plants will have them available, or can put in an order for you, in some cases, if they're not readily on hand.

Leaf Blackening Problem

I have Scindapsus plant in my room. I purchased this plant last month form IKEA. After I purchased this plant, I shifted this to another big pot. After few days, I’ve noticed that leaves of the plant started turning black from one edge. Also, the leaves which are new started turning black from one side. What do I do?

This sounds like a watering issue. It can be that you are either under watering or over watering. Water the plant only when the soil is dry to the touch on the top of the soil.
