Sunlight: These plants will thrive in bright indirect light, but will tolerate lower light settings indoors as well.

Watering: Water when the top 3-5cm of soil have dried out. Water thoroughly and allow for the water to drain and empty the saucer so it is not left sitting in water. In cooler month, watering will be less frequent.

Potting Mix: Ensure you’ve planted your Syngonium in a high quality, well-draining potting mix. Coco Pro Professional Potting Mix is an ideal choice.
