How to Care for Scindapsus Tricolour
Growing Media Requirements
In terms of growing media, Scindapsus Tricolour is not too picky, but we recommend stimulating the growth of new roots when it spreads, provide moss media at the point where the wind roots begin to appear so that it grows very quickly and the plants get stronger.
Avoid exposing Scindapsus Tricolour to direct sunlight as this can cause the leaves to limp, curl and die. Bright, indirect sunlight is great for this plant. This will not only help the plant grow fertile, but will also result in a long and healthy life for him. Remember to always rotate your plants so they get the same amount of light everywhere and grow symmetrically in shape, size and color.
Periodically water the Scindapsus Tricolour plant media according to weather conditions. You have to keep the plant media moist. Don't be late doing the watering and letting the media get too dry. Water your plant after the top of the substrate appears to be drying. What needs to be considered is not to keep the media always wet continuously because it will cause root rot.
