About Silver Ann
Like most other houseplants, the silver Ann is an excellent air purifier. While this plant can get leggy, regular pruning can keep your silver Ann full. The plant has heart-shaped leaves with silver splotches, but the silver can be less pronounced if it is not in good health.
A reasonably low-maintenance plant, this is an excellent choice for those who are new to growing indoor plants.
The scientific name for silver Ann is Scindapsus pictus in the Araceae family. While the plant is sometimes called a silver Philodendron, and both Pothos and Philodendrons belong to the same family (Araceae, the aroid plant family), they are different plants belonging to different genera. Philodendron is a genus itself, while Pothos belongs to the Epipremnum genus.
Silver Ann Pothos is an evergreen tropical vine. The slow-growing vine stays green year-round and uses aerial roots to grow up tree trunks in the wild. Indoors, it can be trained to grow up a moss pole or trellis. It can also be allowed to trail from a hanging basket or high shelf.
This plant originated in the jungles of South East Asia.
The scindapsus pictus silvery Ann has heart-shaped matte green leaves with silvery splashes of color. The leaves are firm and glossy, and the variegation may be inconsistent or differ from plant to plant.

Silver Ann Styling
A silver Ann can be beautifully grown and displayed in many ways. You can let the long vines trail from a hanging basket or shelf, or you can keep them trimmed short for a tropical tabletop display. They can also be trained to grow up a trellis or moss pole. Since they like humid environments, they also grow well in a large terrarium.
