If you’re a fan of the Philodendron Scanden’s heart-shaped leaves, you’ll love Syngoniums. The leaves still have that distinctive heart shape but with extra drama on the edges – we think they’re perfect! This vine comes in several colours and shapes; it starts small but can easily spread and reach bush size.
Size: D14cm x H30cm
LOVING YOUR PLANT
Syngoniums prefer medium to bright, indirect light - direct sunlight will burn its leaves.
Water your plant when the top 1-2 inches of soil are dry. If it dries out too much the leaves will turn brown.
This plant loves moisture but is happy in average household humidity. If the room is dry, a way of keeping the humidity high is to group several plants together or by sitting them on a tray of pebbles and water. Mist it once a week - ideally with filtered, room temperature water as scale can create damage.
Make sure to clean all leaves of your plant with a dry cloth – dust can affect its absorption of light. During growing season, you can feed your plant once a month with a balanced fertiliser.
You can grow this plant in several ways: let it grow into a hanging plant or prune it and propagate little babies.
Toxic for pets and children if eaten.
