How To Propagate A Satin Pothos (Scindapsus Pictus)
Satin pothos are actually not pothos at all. They are Scindapsus pictus, a different genus.
First, wait until your Satin Pothos has grown strands long enough to trail. Propagation will make the plant fuller.
Using clean scissors, snip off a section that is 4" long or has 3 nodes.
Nodes are the small, brown bumps under each leaf. This is where the new roots will come from.
Remove the lowest leaf, and place the cutting and lowest node in room temperature water.
Make sure the cuttings are placed in an area that gets bright, indirect light. A good spot is near the plant's mother.
Change and refill the water about once a week to keep it fresh. Remember to keep nodes submerged.
Roots will take anywhere from 1 to 4 weeks to appear. If it's been 3 weeks, try submerging a second node in water.
Once roots are at least 1" long you can plant the cuttings. Pack down the soil lightly and water. Monitor the soil and water when it dries out.
