Shipping info

Preya is one of the most beautiful houseplants around with her cascading heart shaped leaves, flecked with silver. Trail them around a bookshelf or windowsill, or let them dangle from a shelf or plant stand. The Satin Pothos is also really easy to care for too! The Pothos is a NASA approved air-purifying plant.

Comes in a 14cm plastic grow pot. Decorative pots sold separately.

*The Pothos can be toxic to pets & small children if ingested.

Caring for Preya

Light

Preya enjoys medium to bright light best, but can tolerate low-light. Light that's too bright will scorch leaves. Too little light and the plant will get leggy (sticky) with fewer leaves growing on the vines. An east-facing window is ideal.

Water & humidity

Let the soil dry out between watering. The Pothos hates soggy roots. It will tell you when it needs water when the leaves start to droop. Preya likes average humidity & may need misting in drier months (Gauteng winters).

Feeding

The Pothos is not a heavy feeder, but will enjoy a monthly snack on Canola Meal fertiliser.

Re-potting

Preya may need re-potting every year. When the leaves droop no matter how often you water, the roots have probably filled the pot. Choose a container only 1-2 sizes larger and use fresh potting soil. 

Atrium Top Tip

Pothos problems usually show in its leaves. Brown leaf tips are caused by dry air. Yellow leaves are a symptom of too much water.

Quirky plant fact

The Pothos removes formaldehyde, carbon monoxide and benzene from the air. The plant originates from Southeast Asia
