Syngonium Wendlandii care guide
Syngonium’s are fairly tolerant of low light rooms, but with the rich pink it’s suggested to keep them in medium light. Too much bright light can cause more green to come out.
These cuties definitely can’t take any sunlight as this will burn their leaves.
It’s always best to keep these plants evenly moist. No too wet and not too dry.
You can always do a quick check by scratching away the top 3cm of the soil to see if it is still moist.
They don’t like to be left dry for too long so try and keep them in the normal watering routine.
Try and avoid letting them sit in a tray of water as this can lead to root rot.
Medium humidity is fine for these plant, however they will enjoy a misting of their leave once or twice a week.
These guys will enjoy being fertlized at least every two weeks with a general liquid fertlizer, or a water soluble fertlizer like Multi Booster.
At least every year or two, or once your Syngonium has started outgrowing it’s pot, you will need to to upsize the pot and give her a fresh mix. They require a well draining soil mixture that has good moisture retention.
Try and only use a premium potting mix such as the Gromor Potting Soil.
It’s always good practice to add in Perlite that will assist with good grainage plus peat moss and coir husks that will hold in some moisture.
Nice to know:
Syngoniums do contain calcium oxalate crystals which can irritate the lips, mouth, throat and tummy if ingested… So it’s best to keep the pooches away.
