About Pink Syngonium

Syngonium podophyllum is a popular, easy-to-care-for houseplant with beautiful arrowhead shaped leaves. You’ll often see these plants grown in their juvenile stage, but given something to climb on and abundant sunlight you may see them mature into their adult stage! The leaf shape changes as they mature and may even appear to split into three individual leaves. In the wild they can climb up to 65 feet tall. Be sure to handle them with care, as their sap contains oxalic acid which can be very irritating to the skin and eyes. 👀

Syngoniums are great for any type of grower. They can grow in bright or low light, and in just water too, they seem to have few pests. Lots of variety and colours, I love these plants! I make sure to rotate the pot to get even growth.

My pink seems to be reverting?? But it’s a good plant overall, fast grower, doesn’t brown easily. Pleasant looking to the eye.

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 propagating, but they can easily be divided.
