Secrets to success
Temperature: Optimum temperatures are 18-24°C.
Light: These plants prefer bright indirect light due to their light colour and variegation.
Watering: Water well and then allow 50% of the soil dry out before watering again. Syngonium droop when they need water, but perk up quickly once watered.
Air humidity: This plant requires moderate to higher humidity, this can be achieved by misting the leaves, grouping plants together or placing the plant on a tray of watered pebbles.
Feeding: Fertiliser bi-weekly during the growing season, using half the recommended strength.
Potting mix: A well-draining mix of coco coir, perlite and orchid bark.
This plant is toxic, keep out of reach of pets and children.
