Syngonium is a plant cultivated mainly for its decorative foliage. It develops aerial roots and leaves that change appearance during growth: young plants are small and sagittate; With growth instead they are divided into three lobes and with a protective petiole at the base. In its natural habitat it produces spruce inflorescences very similar to those of Spatifillo, but it is rare to flourish if grown in an apartment. With growth, the plant develops also its climbing nature: it is therefore necessary to provide it with a guard on which the aerial roots may have a clue!
Exposure and brightness: Love light but not direct sunlight. At the cultivation site, there is no stagnant air, even if it does not withstand cold currents.
Temperature: it grows well in temperatures around 20 °. It suffers with temperatures below 13 °.
Soil type: It is a plant that is to be replenished every year at the beginning of spring: It requires light, fibrous and spongy soil and capable of retaining moisture without getting dry. It is advisable to mix soil with leaves and peat with the addition of coarse sand.
Irrigation: There is a need for plenty of water throughout the spring-summer period: the soil must be constantly moist. In the autumn-winter period, when the plant begins vegetative rest, it should only be watered when the soil is dry on the surface. Spray the hair on a regular basis to ensure proper humidity.
Fertilization: From spring to late summer once a month, with NPK liquid fertilizer rich in microelements, mixed with irrigation water. In the winter period it is suspended.
