Syngonium Neon 130mm
The Syngonium Neon is spectacular foliage plant with showy pink leaves. Syngoniums are easy to care for indoors suitable for bright to low indoor light areas. This stunning variety is perfect for newbies and collectors alike.
Care Level - Easy. Tolerating most indoor light conditions, easy with watering and as a fast grower, is suitable for beginners or green thumbs alike.
Light - Syngonium will tolerate low to bright light, but it will thrive in bright indirect light. Hot sun, such as western sun in warmer months can still lead to leaf burn, so keep an eye on position during summer.
Water - Water deeply around once a week, keeping soil moist but not letting the roots sit in water. Lesser in winter and more when soil is drying out quickly in our hot summers. This being said, this one is pretty hardy so missing the watering schedule isn’t going to have many bad consequences here.
Food - In warmer growing months, give a quality liquid fertiliser monthly for the best growth.
Propagation - Syngoniums are very easy to propagate. You can cut syngoniums and propagate in water when stems have started lengthening and you can see the nodes. Once the roots have grown a bit, the rooted cuttings can be potted up into soil to continue to grow. Plants also thicken and multiply in the pot, so clumps can be divided. Best to prop in warmer months for best results.
Soil - A Potting mix that drains well yet still retails moisture is preferable. Potting mix with added coco peat is great, and some perlite will assist in drainage. It will still tolerate many soil types so even a low quality potting mix isn’t going to make these throw a tantrum.
Pets - Syngonium are toxic if eaten, so keep this one away from your fur babies if they are prone to eating your plants.
