Syngonium Confetti - Medium
This rare specimen is sought-after for the originality of its pastel colors. From cream to very light green, but also very significant light pink and brighter pink spots.
- Bright indirect light
- Moderate need in humidity
- Killing it would be remarkable
As in nature, all plants are different. The picture illustrates one of them !
Origin : Tropical and moist areas (Mexico, Guatemala, Brasil...)
Personality : Killing it would be remarkable.
Earmark : Its thin delicate leaves with lots of uncommon colors (cream, green and mainly pink of course !)
Say something smart : There are more than 40 different varieties of Syngonium around the World. Grown in pots and in good conditions, they grow super fast and quickly become a true showstopper in an interior.
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
