This is a decorative and popular shade loving house plant. This plant shows dense growth from base of plant. This variety of Syngonium is famous for its dense growth of tiny leaves. These plants live a long life. If we plant this on open ground or in a big pot, it can grow horizontally in all directions by producing many new plants. We can separate each new plant and plant them at separate place. This method is known as division.
Watering & Sunlight:
The plant can grow very well in diffused or indirect sunlight. It can be grown outdoors also in cold climate areas. Whenever the soil becomes dry, please water the plant. The plant likes misting, especially during summer. Due to more sunlight or temperature (more than 350 C), its leaves may burn. But whenever climatic conditions will become suitable for this plant, it starts producing new leaves at very fast rate.
Soil: We should prepare the potting mix in such way so that water should reach bottom of pot within 15-25 seconds. This is the basic quality of fast draining soil. Such soil also contributes to make the potting mix more aerated. Water logging is to be avoided. To make the ideal potting mix, 20 % drainage media (river sand/ Leca/ Perlite/ Pumice or rice husk- use any one of them) in potting mix should be available. In rest of the potting mix, we should mix vermi-compost (20 %) and garden soil (60%).
