How to Keep Your Scindapsus Treubii Happy
Whether you’re a plant expert or just starting your journey into the world of houseplants, the Scindapsus Treubii is a great addition to any collection. In terms of difficulty, the Scindapsus Treubii is relatively easy to care for. It’s a low maintenance plant with stunning foliage and unique leaves.
Scindapsus Treubii plants prefer bright, indirect sunlight. Place it in a room with lots of filtered light for optimal growth. Avoid placing your Scindapsus Treubii outside under direct sunlight as this will scorch its leaves. Conversely, don’t put it in an area that’s too shady, as this will stunt its growth.
Temperature & Humidity Requirements
Because Scindapsus Treubii plants are native to tropical Asian rainforests, they prefer warmer temperatures and lots of humidity. They do best if kept somewhere that stays warmer than 55 degrees fahrenheit year-round. Avoid placing your plant next to a cold window or air conditioning vent. They also benefit from a good misting now and again.
With the Scindapsus Treubii, it’s very important to avoid overwatering. Never allow your plant to sit in water. Always make sure your pot has adequate drainage. Water your plant regularly, making sure the soil dries between watering. Remember, you want the soil to be moist, not soggy.
Not sure when to water? Stick your finger about one to two inches into the soil. If those two inches are dry, it’s time for some more water! If it feels moist, let it be. Another method is to wait for the leaves to curl slightly at their sides, this is your plant telling you to water it.
When it comes to soil, Scindapsus Treubii plants aren’t too picky. A fast draining succulent soil would do best or a loam soil. As long as the soil is fast draining, your plant will be happy.
Make sure to fertilize your plant once a month during its growing period (spring through summer). Grab a fertilizer that is high in nitrogen, as this will help keep your Scindapsus Treubii’s foliage full and lush.
Though rare, Scindapsus Treubii are susceptible to pests. To avoid unwanted pests, spray your plants with preventative neem oil. If you do encounter pests, head over to your local plant store and grab some insecticide.
Growth & Size
Given the right conditions, a happy Scindapsus Treubii can grow relatively fast, climbing upwards of 8 feet! Their unique leaves can also grow quite large, ranging anywhere between 4 to 20 inches.
It’s best to wait to repot your plant until it has clearly outgrown its current vessel. Roots growing out of the drainage holes are clear indicators that it’s time for a repot. Keep in mind, frequent repotting is unnecessary for this plant and can actually do more harm than good.
