This glorious climbing variety is planted with a central moss pole to aid the growth and height from this fabulous indoor plant. The large, heart-shaped leaves are fleshy and mostly green with flecks of golden yellow. Styled with our large grey ceramic pot, this plant can be floor-standing or add some height on a tall planter or table.

Please note: this plant and pot will come in separate boxes, you simply drop the plant in its plastic pot, into the ceramic and it is ready for its forever home!

Plant Care

Water once every 1-2 weeks. We recommend watering from the base for these larger indoor house plants, allow to soak for 10 minutes in a sink with cold water. Feed with a generic houseplant feed every couple of months. The Scindapsus is happiest in a bright area of full sun but will tolerate partial light conditions indoors.

Read our plant care guide, to help keep your Scindapsus looking fresh.

    Got this from John Lewis. It is so gorgeous. Growing splendidly in our living room.

    Very happy with this – looked just as the picture on the website. The only problem is the moss pole will need to be extended as there is no more room for the plant to climb, and Little Botanical don’t currently sell the extension kits, so it will have to be sourced elsewhere. Great plant though and very healthy.

    got this in a bundle with two other house plants from john lewis. they are great. the packaging was exceptional. but still some leaves were damaged and one pot was broken but have now glued it back no probs. as on the previous review, this plant is growing nicely and i was about to write and ask what to do next as it is fast outgrowing the pole. i think it will outgrow the pot too. the instrcutions it came with did not mention watering from the base as it says here online so, good to know. i would like to know from tlb how to care for the plant especially about the fast growth.

      Scindapsus Moss Pole grows well in a light spot. It is possible to wind the new growth round the moss pole or let it trail. The plant shouldn’t outgrow the pole within the first year and can be trimmed back to maintain its shape. Alternatively you can let it trail, a very popular look or train it across a wall – Scindapsus is a fantastic trailing or climbing plant. After a year if you are seeing continued growth and the roots are becoming pot bound, we’d recommend you choose a larger growing pot and longer moss pole from your local garden centre to repot. Thanks for your comments. Good luck! Team TLB

    Do wish TLB sold extensions for this but worth buying the plant anyway. It’s beautiful I’m so happy. The company’s communication was great. I contacted them and got a reply within 15 minutes. Great customer service great plants

    Great houseplant, nice to have a bit of green indoors, it’s still alive and sprouting new leaves. Easy to maintain and as long it has enough sunlight, it’s perfect.
