How to plant the Scindapus Epipremnum in a pot?
This houseplant is delivered in a standard growers pot. It’s best for the growth of the Scindapus Epipremnum to plant it in a decorative planter. Select a pot that is at least 20 percent larger than the growers pot.
Cover the bottom of the decorative planter with a layer of potting soil. Does the decorative pot have a hole? Then start with a layer of hydro grains, so the water can drain away. The Scindapus Epipremnum should be 1 to 2 cm below the rim. Remove the growers pot and place the plant in the middle of the decorative pot. Fill the pot with fresh potting soil and press it down slightly.
Repot the Scindapus Epipremnum every 3 years into a larger size to promote growth.
