Versatile in its display and excellent for cleaning the air
Scindapsus is better known by its common name of Devil's Ivy, so called because it can survive even in low light. Found in tropical forest around the world devil's ivy is a natural climber (as you'd expect) and can be trained up a moss pole for height. It can also be potted into a hanging basket for a magnificent cascade effect. The beautiful glossy heart shaped leaves are a variegated mix of greens and cream that will look wonderful trailing down a bookcase, shelf or curtain rail. NASA has also named devils ivy as one of the best air-purifying plants so it can be working hard removing pollutants from the air whilst looking beautiful in your living room. Thriving in indirect as well as low light this is a great indoor plant thats ideal for beginners.

Originating from tropical forests, devils ivy will benefit from an occasional misting of its leaves.
Allow the water to run right through the soil and out of the drainage holes of the nursery pot, leaving the water 10 minutes or so to sink through before returning to the display pot. This can be done once a week in summer but should be reduced in winter.
