This semi-tropical plant is commonly known as the Arrowhead vine. The plant has pink to green leaves in various degrees with pinkish veins, and leaf structure changes as the plant matures, going from a simple arrow shape to a deeply lobed or divided mature leaf. Syngonium belongs to the Araceae family. It is considered as a perfect Feng Shui plant and is very easy to grow and maintain. The plant also features in Dr. Wolverton's list of air purifiers. If exposed to sunlight the leaves turn greenish, so to keep them pink, place them under dappled sunlight.

* Required Fields

Watering : The plant loves humidity, once every 2 days during summers and once every 5-7 days during winters. Light : Bright light but no direct sunlight.

Description

Details

Potting- Forest humus, sandy loam, and sphagnum moss. Alternatively 1/2 garden soil, 1/4 Coco Coir & 1/4 perlite. These plants are aggressive, rapid-growing vines, so the frequency of repotting depends somewhat on how big you want the vine to get. Repot yearly for a larger vine. While repotting use a handful of Vermicompost.

Watering Requirement –Loves humidity, once every 2 days in summer and every 5-7 days in winter. Do not keep the soil moist all the time, else root rot will happen. Overwatering/ under watering results in brown spots on leaves. The plant loves humidity so any method to increase humidity around the plant can work e.g pebble trays filled with water at the bottom, grouping plants together, misting, using moss or coconut husk at the top of the soil soaked in water or using a humidifier.

Light Requirement – Filtered or dappled sunlight. Syngonium Pink should be kept in dappled sunlight ie slightly away from the window to ensure the leaves remain pink, else if exposed to direct sunlight they will turn green. It can be grown indoors or under green net outdoors, but better to keep indoors to maintain the pinkish look. Since they love humidity and need dappled sunlight are good plants for bathrooms and kitchen also.

Propagation – Syngonium plants root readily from stem cuttings and can easily be propagated in the spring or summer months. If your plant has aerial roots along the stem, take a section of stem with attached roots to increase your odds of success. It can be easily propagated by cutting below one node in a slight angular fashion & leaving only 2-3 leaves (Other leaves should be pruned).

Fertilization – Use composite fertilizer & NPK (1 spoon BAP & 1 spoon NPK fertilizer in 1-liter water) in spring and summer every 15 days. Feed regularly throughout the growing season.

General Tips - Don’t keep the soil moist all the time, else root rot will happen.
