How to Care for a Syngonium

Syngonium Plant Care Guide

The Syngonium is a popular trailing houseplant with attractive heart-shaped leaves. Also known as the Arrowhead, this sub-tropical plant is versatile and easy to care for, making it an ideal indoor plant at home or office.

Here’s how to care for your Syngonium.

Syngonium Plant Care Guide

Light

The Syngonium thrives in bright indirect light but will tolerate low light settings.

Water

Water the soil thoroughly and wait for the water to drain through, then empty any excess water sitting in the saucer. Allow the top 3-5cm of soil to dry out before watering again. In the cooler months, your plant won’t want as much water.

Temperature & Humidity

The Syngonium prefers warm temperatures and high humidity. Give your plant regular misting to keep it happy.

Keep your Syngonium away from drafts of hot and cold air that can harm it.

Maintenance

A matured Syngonium develops a climbing habit, which looks lovely climbing on a totem or cascading over the sides of a hanging basket. If you prefer a compact desk-plant look, simply trim the unwanted leaves with a clean pair of secateurs or scissors.

You can feed your Syngonium with a balanced liquid fertiliser in spring and summer.
