Plant Care Guide:
1. Lighting: The Scindapsus pictus 'Exotica' thrives in bright, indirect light. Place it near a window with filtered sunlight, but avoid direct sunlight as it can scorch the leaves. If the leaves start to lose their variegation, it may be an indication of too much light.

2. Watering: Water your Scindapsus pictus 'Exotica' thoroughly, allowing the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. It prefers slightly moist soil but can tolerate some drying out. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so be cautious not to let the plant sit in standing water.

3. Humidity: This plant appreciates higher humidity levels, but it can adapt to average household humidity. Misting the leaves occasionally or placing a tray of water nearby can help increase humidity. However, it can still thrive in normal room humidity.

4. Temperature: The Scindapsus pictus 'Exotica' prefers temperatures between 60-85°F (15-29°C). It can tolerate slightly cooler temperatures, but avoid placing it near drafts or cold air conditioning.

5. Fertilizing: Feed your Scindapsus pictus 'Exotica' every 4-6 weeks with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer during the growing season. Dilute the fertilizer according to the instructions on the package to avoid overfeeding and damaging the plant's roots.

6. Pruning: As your Scindapsus pictus 'Exotica' grows, it may develop long vines. Prune back any leggy growth to encourage a bushier appearance. You can propagate the plant by taking stem cuttings and placing them in water or moist soil.

7. Potting and Repotting: Use a well-draining potting mix for your Scindapsus pictus 'Exotica.' Repot the plant every 1-2 years or when it becomes root-bound. It can also be grown in a hanging basket or allowed to trail from a shelf or bookcase.

With these care tips, your Scindapsus pictus 'Exotica' will thrive and reward you with its stunning foliage. Enjoy the beauty and elegance this plant brings to your indoor oasis!
