Syngonium Mottled 'Mojito' - Cutting
Syngonium Mottled 'Mojito' is actually very aptly named: member of a family counting more than 40 varieties, this one stands out with wonderfully mottled leaves... a little reminder to the delicious cuban cocktail we all know.
- Can handle moderate brightness
- High need in humidity
- Killing it would be remarkable
Origin : Tropical and moist areas (Mexico, Guatemala, Brasil...)
Personality : Killing it would be remarkable.
Earmark : Its thin delicate leaves with white, light green and dark green variegations.
Say something smart : There are more than 40 different varieties of Syngonium around the World. Grown in pots, these can grow up to 2 meters high, while they can reach more than 15 meters in the wild.
A planter usually looks nice, but we recommend not to plant your new baby directly in one.
Leave it in its current pot until Spring, then ideally transfer it into a terracota pot with little drain holes when it looks cramped.
Finding its place
Brightness : Moderate to good level of brightness, as close as possible from a window but no direct sun.
Avoid letting it feel draughts near the windows and take it away from heating sources.
Humidity : 60 % or more.
Tip : Spray its leaves with water (ideally rain-water) once a week.
Tip 2 : Place some wet clay pebbles under the pot, so they keep diffusing humidity.
Temperature : Min : 15°C | Max : 30°C | Ideal : 18-22°C
Watering (purely indicative, depends on your local environment): once a week in Spring/Summer, and once every 10 days in Autumn and Winter.
Tip : Put your knuckle in the ground. If it feels totally dry, add some water to keep the soil wet (but not soaking it).
Fertilizer : Once every other week, from April to October
