Nobody expects to love a Syngonium as much as they do. These guys are pretty easy going, and watching the new growth on them is a lot of fun. Bright indirect light, water when the first inch or two…

Tolerant of low light but it will reach for light. Leaves are a bit succulent so they do better in brighter light but will burn in direct sun. These are aroids so they want to spread. Mine lived in m…

It’s been very easy so long as you don’t let the soil dry FULLY out. Dryness will cause lower leaves to dry/drop, but I don’t mind it because it’s constantly pumping out new growth. Never tried propa…

Likes it’s soil moist but only fully water once a week in the summer. No direct sun and peat soil mix. Prefers some humidity but isn’t picky. Perfect starter plant and comes in many variegations

Recommend this plant for beginners! Not a finicky plant and it shoots out new leaves constantly. They also let you know when they need water by drooping some of the bottom stems.

really fast grower kind of hard to kill, only downside is how quickly it grows and sometimes can’t keep up with propagating but still a great beginner plant
