Syngonium are commonly known as "arrowhead plants" due to the triangular shape of their leaves. They come in many colors but the Neon, or Strawberries and Cream variety is a gorgeous creamy pink dream!
The Syngonium Neon variety has glossy to velvety leaves with beautiful dusty pink to baby pink leaves. It its mature form, Syngonium have an elegant draping growth pattern that look particularly good in a hanging basket or on a shelf!
Lighting: Medium to bright indirect (brighter light will encourage more pink in the leaves but protect from direct light as this variety is particularly prone to sunburn)
Water: When ~1 inch of topsoil is dry. Slight dry out between watering but ideally keep damp but not overly wet. Syngonium are tollerant to medium to high humidty so are great candidates for terrariums and vivariums. High humidity is not needed but will certainly make for happier plants. Use a mister, humidifer or keep under glass for easy humidity control.
Soil/Potting: Plant in a well draining soil in a container with a drainage hole and made of slightly porous material like matte or glazed ceramic. Keep soil damp to moist. Repot annually or when plant exhibits discoloration without the presence of any mis-watering habits
Fertilize: Monthly with bacterial inoculant recomended for steady growth and to promote flowering
Temperature: Room temp, protect from harsh fluctuations in temperature particularly in the winter
Toxicity: Contain small amounts of calcium oxalate, ingestion may result in slight discomfort in the mouth or stomach. Ingestion of a large volume of plant matter or have a particuar sensitivity may experience gastrointestinal distress (from one end or the other) but is rarely serious. Always consult your vet/Dr. if your pet/child has ingested plant matter and exhibits any symptoms.
