Scindapsus is better known by its common name of Devil's Ivy, and it has been named this because it can survive even in low light. Naturally found in tropical forests around the world, Devil's Ivy is a natural climber (as you'd expect) and in this instance, has been trained up a moss pole for added height. The graceful, glossy heart-shaped leaves are a variegated mix of greens and yellow that will look wonderful trailing down a bookcase, shelf, or curtain rail. NASA has also named Devil's Ivy as one of the best air-purifying plants. As such, it will remove pollutants from the air (whilst looking beautiful of course). Thriving in indirect as well as low light, it will certainly prove the perfect first plant.

Everyone should have the chance to experience the benefits that plants bring to our lives, and we have put a lot of effort into making sure that all of our products are easy to grow for everyone.
Sustainability is at the heart of our ethos and we have done everything we can to ensure that all of our products are as sustainable as possible, be it our plastic free, fully recyclable packaging, GM free seeds, or ethically-sourced compost.
Your plant will be happy in bright light that is preferably indirect, otherwise the leaves could be scorched. A little way back from a window in a bright room is optimum. The foliage of your plant may become a little dusty, so just wipe them down with a damp cloth occasionally, but try not to come into direct contact with the plant.
