Help identifying a houseplant?


Hello!

I fell in love with this beautiful plant and purchased it from my local greenhouse. Sadly, it did not have a tag and the lady at the till could not tell me what it was.

Could anyone identify it for me?



Thank you kindly!

Might be an Aglaonema plant?

No,
It's a Scindapsus Silver Satin. Basically a Pothos type. Don't overwater, no direct sun, and not too hot.

Kinda looks like my silver philodendron. Very pretty though.

Thank you! I love this plant dearly!

If I understand correctly from my research, I believe that Scindapsus Pictus Silver Satin is the same as Satin Pothos, which is also sometimes called Silver Philodendron (but it is in the pothos family- not a philodendron).

I am not sure....I'm not a big fan of common names, for that exact reason, but yes it appears those common names are attached to this Scindapsus (sorry I mistakenly spelt it with a 't' earlier). Its like saying Elephant Ear as that covers Alocasia, Colocasia, some Philodendrons etc, though I can understand that some people prefer common names as the scientific ones can be quiet a mouthful at times to say the least lol
They are all a member of the Aroid family or Araceae family
Hope this helps

Are the leaves fuzzy? If not, it could be a philodendron brandtianum.
