Regular price

Plant species: Syngonium podophyllum

Plant genus: Syngonium

Plant family: Araceae

Plant origin: Central and South America.

Soil drainage: well-drained, we recommend a substrate mix composed of coconut coir, perlite, vermiculite, sphagnum moss, pumice

Soil pH: acidic

Fertilizers: Syngonium Red Spot Tricolor is a species that requires a moderate level of fertilization, therefore we recommend using a bio-type fertilizer (we use the BioBizz brand for the plants we cultivate) from early March to late November.

Air humidity: Being one of the easiest species to grow in the Araceae family, Syngonium is a plant that easily acclimatizes to ambient humidity (40%-50%), both indoors and in offices.

Temperature: 18-30 degrees Celsius

Light: indirect sunlight

Plant height including pot: 15-20 cm

Pot diameter: 9cm

Like all aroid species, Syngonium Red Spot Tricolor loves indirect sunlight (direct exposure can discolor its leaves) and a moist substrate when the top two cm have dried out.

Attention! To check the moisture level of the substrate, inserting a finger into the pot at a depth of 2 cm is the best way to measure soil moisture.
So, if you feel the substrate is wet, keep the sprayer away from it for one to two days, and if you feel it is dry, water it.

Attention 2! When we talk about watering, we must consider the pot in which the plant is planted, as well as the amount of substrate and its degree of aeration. That means we don't pour a liter of water into a pot with a diameter and height of 12 cm, because we drown the plant's roots. It is best to discard excess water from the collector pot half an hour after watering.
As it develops, it needs a support pole wrapped in coconut fiber, in which case the aerial roots will cling to this support, resulting in a plant with a more vigorous stem and increasingly larger leaves, with multiple fenestrations.

Good luck caring for it! And don't forget to give us updates about your plant, using the hashtag #greenmirrors and tagging @green.mirrors in your Instagram posts! We promise to share them in stories.
