Like many vining plants in the Areaceae family, Scindapsus pictus is happy to be pruned, and cuttings will root willingly.
Trim stems when they reach a length you're happy with. Allow the cuttings to heal for 24 hours then pot on or plant back into the same pot to make the plant bushier. Repot the plant when roots emerge from the bottom of the pot.
Keep away from too much direct sun which can scorch the leaves. It will tolerate some shade, but the silvered variegation may fade. Bright indirect like a north or east facing window, or slightly set back from a south or west facing window, is ideal.
Keep compost moist but never soggy.
Keep above 15ºC year round.
