Scindapsus aureus, also called Epipremnum aureum but more easily remembered as Devil’s Ivy, is a climbing plant related to Philodendron which it strongly resembles.
Heart-shaped leaves are splashed with irregular yellow markings. As a house plant this can be trained up a moss pole, the aerial roots helping it cling, or simply left to trail from a hanging pot.
Keep in a hanging basket or train it up a pole. Place it in a medium light corner, not too close to windows or draughty areas. The vines will grow to impressive lengths, and can be encouraged to branch out if the growing tip is snipped. You can use the tip of the vine to create a new plant.
The Scindapsus is a fast growing plant and will benefit from having some fertiliser applied to the soil. Use a mild balanced fertiliser for house plants.
For long, mature and established plants, a foliar fertiliser once in a fortnight, will provide the plant a boost as it will absorb nutrients through its leaves too.
Soil and watering
if you need to repot the plant, make sure to use a good quality house plant mix with good drainage.
Keep the soil damp, not moist. Water when the soil in the pot feels dry to the touch.
A shower once a month will help get rid of the dust collecting on the leaves and any parasite insects that might be airborne.
The Pothos plants propagate very easily. Any broken stems containing at least one leaf node can be propagated in water and as soon as the roots reach 2-3 cm, the plant can be planted in soil, creating a new plant.

Palm trees are one of the most popular choices for indoor plants to grow. They provide the majestic beauty of a tropical garden and the ease of care. The less mature palms can be used as a desk plant for a small office and even in bathrooms of some homes.
An inevitable problem encountered by growing palms indoors is the amount of dust that builds up on the leaves over time.
The soil in the pots should be kept moist and never be allowed to dry out. During the summer months you will be watering as much as twice per week to maintain moisture levels, whereas in winter you should water sparingly.
