Syngoniums are very popular for
indoor plantings and are well suited
Syngonium Mixed 130mm
for indoor gardens and terrariums.
Syngoniums are able to survive well
under low light. They are moderate
growing so will require some cutting back
so they can be kept small. If plants are too
large the centre can be cut to force offsetting.
They will also do very well in pots.
Water well if kept in pots but sparingly in
terrariums. Potting mix must be allowed to
almost dry between waterings. Keep in some
direct sunlight or provide artificial light. Avoid
heaters and drafty positions. Fertiliser should
be only used if you would like the plant to grow.
Lack of fertiliser will keep plants shorter and
more compact. Temperatures above 20c
will speed up growth; between 15 and 20c
growth will be extremely slow and plants can
be pruned to keep compact. Periods below
12c may cause leaves to rot. Dead leaves
must be removed to prevent damage to
healthy growth or the base. Keep warm
the dry side in winter.
