Scindapsus Climbing Plant Requirements
Scindapsus grows in the undergrowth of tropical forests and climbs the trunks of tall trees, which gives us many tips about its care. The position in which he will feel good should be illuminated, with plenty of diffused light.

Direct southern sun can burn its leaves, while a very shady location will cause the plant to stretch towards the sun, resulting in the lengthening of the internodes and the loss of its compact shape.

For this reason, it is recommended to place the scindapsus on the east, north or west window sill.

Another important element in its cultivation is the substrate, which must be slightly acidic, fertile, rich in humus and at the same time permeable.

A recipe for a sample substrate mix for scindapsus that you make yourself is, for example, 30% coconut chips, 30% pine bark, 10% spaghnum moss, 20%  pumice stone  and 10% earthworm humus.

It also does well in hydroponic cultivation. 
Scindapsus should only be watered when the substrate is almost completely dry.

It is a plant sensitive to excessive watering, which can lead to root rot and the development of bacterial or fungal infections.

Suitable air humidity for scindapsus should be at least 50%. The higher the humidity, the more the plant will appreciate it. The humidity level can be checked with  a hygrometer and, if it is too low, you can use  a humidifier. 
The plant should be fertilized regularly with fertilizer for green plants according to the instructions provided on the manufacturer's label. Fertilization should be done in the sunny months – preferably from March to October. 
The main problem with growing scindapsus is the yellowing of the leaves, which is most often the result of excessive watering, fungal diseases or a sign of pest feeding.
