Base Species or Cultivar:

Scindapsus pictus Silver Cloud


Cultivar Origin:

We have made an observation that the cultivar exhibits a highly distinct and noteworthy bright creamy yellow with green spotted variegation. In order to confirm the uniformity and stability of this variegation, we conducted propagation of the cultivar.

1st Generation

We acquired this particular species from Indonesia, which was given to us without a specific identification label and referred to as a Scindapsus "No ID." We received the plant on March 26,2023, as a 9 leafer trailing plant. This marks the beginning of our first generation. The plant arrive in the Philippines and was acclimated for 2 weeks. Instead of dividing the plant immediately into multiple internodes, we opted to grow it as a single plant and made more leaves before performing nodal propagation.

We conducted an observation of the Scindapsus Halimoon maintain its variegation after 4 weeks of acclimatization. We noted the consistent and persistent variegation displayed by the plant, which had grown an additional 2 leaves, all of which unique patterns of variegation that extended throughout the new trailing leaves.

On April 22, 2023, to validate the stability of the variegation, we proceeded to propagate the plant via stem cutting, resulting in 8 mid cuts nodal propagation, 1 top cut with 3 leaves, and 1 base cut with 1 leaf. These propagations underwent further observation to confirm the enduring nature of its variegation.

2nd Generation

We conducted an observation of the Scindapsus Halimoon after 45 days, on June 7, 2023. We confirmed the consistent and persistent variegation behavior exhibited by the plant. Here is a summary of our observations and history:

1. The Top cut, initially a 3 leafer, developed into a 6 leafer top cut.

2. The base cut, which also had 1 leaf, produced a variegated sprout and turned into a 3 leafer.

3. Eight (6) midcut leaves now have additional 3 leaves on each leaves. All displaying the characteristic different array of variegation patterns.

4. Two (2) midcut leaves was sold to 2 plant enthusiast.

These cultivar are propagated via stem cutting and were divided into 2 parts. The following are its inventory:

Top Cut was cut into 2 part: 1 base cut, 1 leaf, and 1 top cut with 5 leaves; total of 2 pots

6 Mid Cuts, which has 4 leaves, was cut into 2 parts: 1 leaf base cut and 3 leafer top cut; total of 12 pots

1 Base Cut, which has 4 leaves, was cut into 2 parts: 1 leaf base cut and 3 leafer top cut; total of 1 pots

3rd Generation

As of July 7, 2023, the following are the inventory of the propagated plants:

1. 4 leafer 12 pots
2. 5 leafer 7 pots
3. 3 leafer 6 pots
4. 6 leafer 1 pot

All consistent with their variegation of new leaves and has wide array of patterns. On July 10, 2023, we cut on the inventory 8 base cut resulting to an additinal pots and collecting 28 pots in total

Name Origin:

The plant known as "Scindapsus pictus Silver Cloud Halimoon" and derives its name from Sundanese language which translates to fog. The name "Halimoon" for the Scindapsus plant is inspired by its unique hazy leaf variegation and the scattered silver blotches appearance of its non-variegated leaves, resembling the foggy landscapes found in peak of Gunung Salak in Bogor, Indonesia.

Variegation: The bright creamy yellow variegation with green spots on the leaves of the Scindapsus is associated with the vibrant colors often seen during sunrise or sunset, which create a warm and inviting atmosphere. This could be reminiscent of the beautiful sunrise or sunset views one might witness amidst the foggy Gunung Salak.

2. Non-variegated leaves: The hazy or foggy appearance silver blotches of the non-variegated leaves of the Scindapsus evokes the mist-covered landscapes found in the Gunung Salak. The leaves may have a slightly blurred or obscured appearance, symbolizing the foggy ambiance in the region.

Growth Habit:

Potting Mix: The Scindapsus Eclipse is cultivated in a potting mix consisting of 3 parts perlite and 1 part Wood Compost mix "Alnus".

Light: The plant is provided with a grow light for 18 hours per day to meet its lighting needs and maintain its variegation.

Watering: A weekly watering schedule is followed in a semi-indoor location.

Humidity: To maintain 70%-90% humidity, the plant is enclosed in a glass container.

Temperature: The plant is grown in a temperature range of 25°C to 30°C.
