Scindapsus Treubii plants prefer bright, indirect sunlight. Place it in a room with lots of filtered light for optimal growth. Avoid placing your Scindapsus Treubii outside under direct sunlight as this will scorch its leaves. Conversely, don’t put it in an area that's too shady, as this will stunt its growth.

Because Scindapsus Treubii plants are native to tropical Asian rainforests, they prefer warmer temperatures and lots of humidity. They do best if kept somewhere that stays warmer than 55 degrees fahrenheit year-round. Avoid placing your plant next to a cold window or air conditioning vent. They also benefit from a good misting now and again.

With the Scindapsus Treubii, it’s very important to avoid overwatering. Never allow your plant to sit in water. Always make sure your pot has adequate drainage. Water your plant regularly, making sure the soil dries between watering. Remember, you want the soil to be moist, not soggy.

Not sure when to water? Stick your finger about one to two inches into the soil. If those two inches are dry, it’s time for some more water! If it feels moist, let it be. Another method is to wait for the leaves to curl slightly at their sides, this is your plant telling you to water it. 

When it comes to soil, Scindapsus Treubii plants aren't too picky. A fast draining succulent soil would do best or a loam soil. As long as the soil is fast draining, your plant will be happy.
