Syngonium podophyllum, or Arrowhead Vine, makes for an incredibly satisfying houseplant! It is relatively easy to care for, grows very quickly with good care, and is super easy to propagate! If you don’t provide good, consistent care, it can look a bit ratty. Or over time, it may become unruly like my Syngonium podophyllum albo-variegatum, but you can take advantage of that and propagate!
Keep reading because I will show you all my best Syngonium care tips, how to revive a plant that looks a bit ratty, and how to easily propagate! Syngonium Care Many people think that there is something wrong with their plant when it starts to stretch out and vine, but the fact is that these plants ARE vines in nature!
They will start growing at the base of a tree and climb up at least a few feet. We are used to seeing juvenile leaves, but the mature leaves will look much different and have deeper lobes. These plants are native to rain forests ranging from southern Mexico through Central and South America. As you can imagine, they syngonium warm temperatures so try not to let these plants get below 60F.
They will simply sulk if it gets colder than that. When you purchase a Syngonium, and there are quite a few varieties out there, they will appear compact and bushy. As time goes on, they will elongate. But you can learn to manage the growth any way you’d like…and I’ll describe that shortly! Arrowhead Vine 1. LIGHT These are often touted as “low-light” plants which is a pretty confusing term. I find that Syngonium plants will grow well in a variety of different exposure windows, syngonium long as you avoid too much direct sun.
Placing your plant right in front of a Northern or Eastern exposure window is ideal.
Morning sun is gentle enough in most areas. Avoid extended periods of direct sun, especially if you live in areas that have really hot summers. If you have very sunny Western or Southern windows, you may want to set your plant back a bit so that it doesn’t get too much direct sun. 2.
WATERING I follow my standard watering practices for leafy tropicals. Always water thoroughly and completely until water escapes the drainage hole. Then wait until maybe the top inch or so of the soil is dry before watering again. Don’t let your soil get completely dry. It’s really as simple as that. So many people are scared of overwatering and syngonium are a lot of houseplant watering myths out there. Overwatering does not mean what you may think it means, so be sure to become an informed houseplant parent and read the blog posts I linked to after you’e done with this post.
What you read here is really ALL you need to remember when it comes to watering! Don’t overcomplicate it! Be sure to keep your plant in good light though, like I described above, otherwise you may be asking for trouble.
YELLOW LEAVES If you let your plant dry out completely, and repeatedly, you’ll find that the lower leaves will start to yellow one by one until you’re left with a naked, bare vine with a tuft of leaves. Try to avoid letting the soil dry out completely in order to keep as many leaves on your plant as possible. Sure, it is normal for some of the older leaves to yellow over time, but if you are negligent with watering, you will make the issue much worse.
There are other reasons too why houseplants get yellow leaves. 3. FERTILIZING For my leafy tropicals like Syngonium, I consolidated to use one fertilizer for practically everything, and that is Dyna-Gro Grow. I like to tell people that fertilizing is NOT a fix for poor plant culture. If you have been neglecting your plant and growing it in poor light, you have greater things to worry about than what fertilizer you are going to use.
Fertilizing should be a way to supplement your plant’s health after you have mastered syngonium culture (light, watering, etc.). Dyna-Gro Grow is truly amazing! I’ve been using it for a while now and have great results. It is a premium, urea-free, complete fertilizer and I simply mix 1/4-/1/2 teaspoon per gallon of water syngonium use it every time I water my plants from about late Winter through about October or so.
I stop fertilizing when the days get shorter throughout most of the Fall and Winter since plants simply aren’t growing much. Why not give Dyna-Gro Grow a shot? You will notice a wonderful difference! 4. HUMIDITY It makes sense that these plants love high humidity, since they grow in rain forests, but in most cases, you will be fine with average indoor humidity as long as you have good watering practices!
Good watering practices are much more important than providing high humidity, but if you can provide both (along with good air circulation), then syngonium even better!
This is true even for the “finicky” maidenhair fern that I’ve been able to grow very successfully! I always run a humidifier in my sunroom during the months that our central heat is on. I talk about my favorite humidifier in my blog post on increasing humidity.
If you syngonium closely in the photo below, you can see my Syngonium podophyllum albo-variegatum on the top shelf of the big plant rack on the side. There are two long vines that trail all the syngonium to syngonium floor.
I later chopped that plant up and propagated it so I’ll show you how I did that soon! ?It’s almost the weekend! My plants are starting to perk up after this past dismal winter. I’m thinking about installing grow lights all over in my sunroom to maximize this space and improve growth even more.
Follow me in my journey, and I’ll be sure to write about it on my blog. ?Be sure to visit and subscribe to my houseplant blog at www.ohiotropics.com.

POTS & SOIL MIX For all my leafy tropical plants, I use the following soil mix which is a great, well-draining all purpose mix! You can easily get everything on Amazon and I like to use: 3 parts of Miracle Gro Potting Mix to 1 part of Perlite.
Mix it all up together, and you’re golden! Remember that if you purchased a plant in a small pot at a nursery, chances are you may need to repot it (always allow at least a couple weeks of adjustment at home before you repot anything). Small pots often dry out very quickly, so keep this in mind!
When you do repot, a good rule of thumb is to only repot into syngonium pot that is one size bigger than the old pot. For example, if you have a plant in a 4 inch pot, don’t go any larger than a 6 inch pot. And always choose a pot with a drainage hole! 6. PRUNING Depending on what your goal is for your plant, you may or may not want to prune. If you desire to have a bushy plant, don’t be afraid to prune syngonium plant back. This will shorten any vines that are starting to lengthen, and help encourage new growth so it can remain more compact.
Syngonium if you do prune, you also have the benefit of being able to propagate your plant to make more! I’ll show you how I propagated my variegated Syngonium next! If you prefer not to prune your plant, know that the vines will extend and get long.
At this point, you can display them in a number of ways: • You can use your Syngonium in a hanging plant. The vines will eventually reach the floor so you’ll have to prune at that point anyway! • You can let your plant’s vines ramble on your plant shelf, or dangle off your shelf. • Or, one of the most interesting ways would be to give your plant a moss post and let it climb like the specimen below! Check out my DIY Moss Post tutorial to make your own!
Syngonium podophyllum ‘Three Kings’ is a beautiful cultivar that like most Syngoniums is pretty easy to grow. . #syngoniumpodophyllum #syngoniumvariegata #syngonium #aroid #aroidaddicts #araceae #houseplants #plantdaddy #houseplantsofinstagram #houseplantclub #plants #plantsmakepeoplehappy #urbanjungle #urbanjunglebloggers #houseplantplantclub #plantporn #greeninside #plantinterior #melbourneplantclub #botanicalpickmeup #indoorplants #plantsmakepeoplehappy® #leafporn #philodendronlover #plantaddiction A post shared by Plants & Design Together (@craigmilran) on Mar 22, 2020 at 10:45pm PDT 7.
Propagation Now comes the fun part! This is one of the easiest plants to propagate by cuttings. It roots very quickly in water. One of my readers approached me once with a question about her plant. All of the lower leaves were gone and she didn’t like syngonium bare look of her plant. I showed her exactly syngonium to cut her plant to quickly make cuttings to replant. Bare Syngonium Vines You can see on each of the vines, there are roots already growing at the nodes (where the leaves meet the vine).
In this case, the leaves had yellowed from the plant drying out too much. You would simply cut right below any of these nodes, indicated by the red line in the photo, and place the cuttings in water.
Just syngonium sure to include one or two nodes (circled in green in the photo) in water in your propagation vessel. Keep your cuttings shorter and make sure that each cutting has one or two leaves.
Be sure to change the water weekly at least in order to keep it fresh, and remove anything that may have rotted. My variegated Syngonium (Syngonium podophyllum albo-variegatum) had two vines that were about 6 feet syngonium, so I took the opportunity to take multiple cuttings Syngonium podophyllum albo-variegatum I love the beautiful variegation on the leaves. Syngonium podophyllum albo-variegatum Syngonium the same process that I described above, I took multiple cuttings, and placed them in a vase of water.
Propagating Syngonium Cuttings Pretty soon after you take the cuttings, the roots will grow fairly quickly from the nodes (where the leaves meet the vine). Rooted Syngonium Cuttings Once the roots start growing, go ahead and pot them up!
If you want a nice and full plant, place them all in syngonium pot and you will have a nice specimen in no time! Before we go, here is another example from one of my reader’s plants. Propagating Arrowhead Vine My reader didn’t like the look of her plant anymore above and prefers her Arrowhead vine to be bushier, so I demonstrate where to cut the vine (red line) and the two points (green arrows) that will root in water.
Syngonium Varieties Looking to purchase a special Syngonium? One of my favorite and most convenient one-stop-shops to buy practically any plant is Etsy. Check out the Syngonium selection(link to Etsy) today! Other than the ones I’ve already shown, here are some other varieties that are available. Syngonium podophyllum angustatum Pink Syngonium Please do me a favor and share this post to social media because it will help me spread the Ohio Syngonium houseplant care tips to the masses!
Also, check out my shop on Amazon for all your houseplant care needs: OHIO TROPICS PLANT CARE STOREFRON T I have an Arrowhead plant that has become two long vines, they're about a foot long each. Most of the leaves are on the last 5 inches of the vines. Syngonium I cut them below the leaves to propagate, syngonium the original stems sprout new leaves? Or do I need to syngonium some syngonium on the stems in order for the original plant to continue growing?
Thanks in syngonium I am new to caring for my syngonium Podophyllum Albo-variegadum, but I've been growing Aroids for awhile now. I just received a new Albo in the mail that has had obvious signs of root rot and came in a syngonium of sopping wet soil. I immediately (and very gently) rinsed all the wet soil from the roots, carefully cut away the roots with obvious signs of rot,separated into 5 plants instead of one to give each a better chance to recover, and repotted them in smaller individual pots with syngonium homemade Aroid mix of coconut bark chunks, charcoal, pumice, pine bark fines, and some potting soil.
It's been about 5 days, and they are all recovering very well, except the two half & half split solid green/white leaves. Each leaf is on a separate plant, but both have the same changes. The syngonium half of the leaf is slowly turning yellow, and the white half the edges syngonium turning brown and are so thin they Curl upward and look like wet newspaper when I mist them. The rest of plants and even other leaves on those plants are all thriving. Why would only those two leaves deteriorate so quickly while all the other are recovering quicker than I had expected them to.??
Also, you stated that these propogate easily in water. About how long on average does it take to start seeing root growth? Thank you SO much for sharing your knowledge with us. Syngonium mouth dropped to the floor when I saw your gorgeous Albo cascading all the way down your plant shelves! Beautiful. This is a syngonium looking indoor plant that only needs basic care On our scale of Easy, Intermediate or Difficult, we ranked it Intermediate. It's actually really "easy" to look after in most homes, however, because it has an unruly nature and tendency to creep around your home (if allowed), it needs a certain amount of maintenance and pruning that other plants ordinarily don't.
The pruning is needed to keep a Syngonium living indoors handsome looking and to avoid the ugly flop effect. Also because the plant is slightly poisonous you really do want to know where all parts of the plant are growing and creeping around, especially if you have curious children or hungry pets around.
How do you pronounce Syngonium podophyllum correctly? Say: Sin- GO-nee-um Po-do- FI-lum So let's get down to business and lay down six-plus points about this interesting looking plant. Firstly, it ranked in Dr Wolverton's top 50 houseplants to clean the air. Secondly, it's rarely troubled by pests and doesn't object too much if you throw the occasional bit of neglect its way.
Thirdly, it has amazing foliage with a variety of different variegation on the leaves. The cultivars you can buy are quite diverse although " White Butterfly" (below) is considered one of the best looking and consequently is one of the most popular.
Syngonium - White Butterfly "White Butterfly" has an almost washed-out appearance, but it's a subtle and less intense green than many other houseplants so can stand out against dark coloured walls and backgrounds. Keep a lookout though for " Imperial White" and " Emerald Gem" both of which also have a striking appearance.
If you're after something a bit more unusual or a little more "modern" then you're in luck because there are several newer varieties of Nephthytis that have become popular over the last few years. In our experience they tend to be a bit slower growing, but this is compensated by the standout markings and colorings. Keep a lookout for these beauties. Syngonium's are no longer just green and white. This one is green and pink "Pink Syngonium" and " Neon Robusta", both have light lime green leaves with a good dose of pink scattered throughout the leaves.
It's very attractive and draws some serious attention when it gets to a bigger size. Pro Tip - Although there are lots of newer varieties out there, the care requirements are very syngonium.
So if you have one already growing happily, it's a safe bet any of the others will fit in just fine too. Another cultivar that proved impossible for us to pass by, syngonium "Maria Allusion". Initially, it can be quite easy to overlook, but on closer inspection, syngonium really very syngonium. If you think that the traditionally grown Syngoniums were normally all about the light green and whites markings.
So for a plant syngonium has dark green and dark pink, almost marron colourings make for something really special. No Syngonium should be particularly expensive syngonium should sit on the lower end of houseplant prices.
The exception to this would be if you're buying a very large plant or have picked out a rare variety. Syngonium Maria Allusion stands out as it has uncommon colourings The fourth plus is its versatility in that Syngonium can be grown easily as a compact bushy looking plant, or you can accept its creeping, climbing nature and grow it tall up against a moss stick. It also plays well with other plants so syngonium you want to grow several different types of houseplants together in one large container you can do.
It's cheap to buy and very easy to propagate more plants is our fifth plus. Our sixth and final selling point is how it's always evolving and changing its appearance. A young plant or new syngonium will give you arrowhead-shaped leaves, with strong, bold variegation. As your plant syngonium, the leaves change shape to give a lobed finish. So if you compared a recent cutting with its parent you may even think they're different plants entirely.
This is a really attractive houseplant to have in your home. It's pretty easy going and does best if not fussed constantly (great for the indoor gardener who syngonium an easy life). They do however need a syngonium of pruning occasionally as very bushy plants can sprawl and look messy. Light It doesn't matter how you're displaying your Syngonium or choosing how to grow it when it comes to the light requirements, these plants do best syngonium a position where they receive good light with no direct sunlight.
Watering Syngonium remember to water well and then wait. Simple. This is a fairly thirsty houseplant, especially if it's in a small container or pot. Younger plants will need much less water, but bigger plants will need much more frequent watering, potentially several times a week if the temperature is very warm.
When you go reach for the syngonium can, the soil needs to be evenly moist when you're done. Then wait for the soil to dry a little before evenly watering again.
Pro Tip - Syngonium plant syngonium a similar trait to the Peace Lily in that it will droop quite a bit when it's thirsty. Syngonium less forgiving than it's cousin though, so if you spot the drooping, give it a drink as soon as you notice it happening. This means you should avoid the " little and often" approach, just remember to water well and then wait. Simple. In Winter, the "wait" period will increase as the plant will take longer to dry out so adjust accordingly.
Humidity Average room conditions are fine, but if you're thinking of putting your plant above a radiator be careful. In growing conditions like this, low humidity levels will become an important issue for Syngoniums because very syngonium air will encourage brown leaf crisping. If not addressed, the browning can be quite significant which will then distract from the beautiful leaves.
All the usual ways of increasing humidity can be used to help prevent this. Failing that move your plant away from the source of heat. You can always move it back during the months when you're no longer using your heaters.
Feeding It's good to try and feed an established growing plant a few times a month. Like most houseplants, Syngoniums do "rest" in Winter but for only a short period, so even in the middle of the coldest months of the year (providing the indoor room is warm) it's still quite normal to see new leaves emerging. Therefore it's fine to feed in Winter too syngonium you want. But only if the plant is growing and therefore has need of the fertiliser.
If in any doubt don't bother. Temperature This is one houseplant that needs to be at the heart of your home. When considering placement for these plants, this is one houseplant that needs to be at the heart of your home because it demands warmth, even in cold months. An unheated conservatory in Winter for example is a no-no. A minimum of 16°C (61°F).
Repotting As with a lot of climbers, there is often considerably more green growth creeping around the place compared to what's happening underground with the roots. For this reason, they do pretty well in small pots and if you're feeding frequently they do well like this for several years.
However if you notice you're watering more frequently or growth has stopped (and you want more), syngonium your plant into a bigger pot during Spring using any standard compost mix. Propagation Propagating a Syngonium is easy peasy.
You can root cuttings in water, or syngonium into potting compost. Both methods have a good success rate - providing you cut the right part of the plant. Syngonium propagation is super easy to do To get started you want a new growth shoot that either has syngonium or two leaves already, ( or the formation of one). They don't have to be brand new growths, as it works with mature shoots too, but we personally have always had better luck with the newer ones.
Follow the growth shoot downwards several inches until you reach a pair of "nodes", these are a set of two small protruding bumps ( one on each side of the stem).
Not sure what we mean? - Have a closer look at the photo above or syngonium the picture Gallery and if you look closely towards the bottom of the stems, you can see the small dark nodes sticking out. This is where the roots will form. The cut needs to be made just a few centimeters below the nodes because this is where the new roots will come from. If you're rooting using water, it's just a case of dropping the cutting in and keeping the water topped up. A few weeks later you will hopefully start to see new roots.
Wait until you have a network of roots before carefully potting up in a free draining compost mix. If you have opted to plant the cuttings straight into compost, then it's a good idea to dip the cut ends into a rooting hormone first. Put the cutting(s) towards the edge of the pot rather than syngonium the very center, keep the soil moist and place it somewhere warm. For best results take multiple cuttings at the same time but don't let them touch each other.
Speed of Growth A Syngonium will grow steadily for much of the year providing it has good conditions. Left unchecked a stray vine can creep several feet in only a few months. Height / Spread Syngonium with many creepers and climbers you have to exercise a level of control and authority by pinching out (cutting off the tips of the) stray growing vines, otherwise you end up with an unruly and messy looking plant.
A well trained mature Syngonium growing up a moss syngonium for several years will, as a guide, give you the following maximum dimensions: 1.8m / 6ft in height and a spread of 60cm / 2ft.
Plants grown with no height support won't grow very tall at all, syngonium you can still expect syngonium bushy looking plant if you keep pinching the tips out. Flowers There are flowers which appear on mature Syngoniums, although they aren't very exciting or interesting. The key selling point of this particular houseplant is the foliage.
Is the Syngonium / Nephthytis Poisonous? Yes, the Syngonium is considered a little toxic to most pets in view of the calcium oxalates found in the plant's sap. Consuming the leaves can result in oral irritation and if fully ingested, vomiting is a common side effect. Anything Else? If the juvenile looking foliage along with a more compact plant is preferred, cut off all the climbing stems that develop â€” this will keep it bushy and neat.
The leaves will be arrow-shaped rather than the adult lobed style. Caring for Syngonium Recap • Good Light Needed They need a moderately lit or brightly lit space. Avoid direct sunlight. • Moderate Watering Water really well then wait until the soil has almost dried out before watering again. • Warm Temperature To do well they syngonium temperatures above 16°C (61°F) at all times. • Feeding Feed once or twice every month all year round providing your syngonium is producing new leaves and shoots.
If it's not, stop feeding. Syngonium Plant Problems Things can get out of hand if you syngonium train or prune from time to time Either repot the entire plant, installing a moss syngonium at the same time and then train and pin the stems to the stick. Otherwise, take cuttings and start again. - See Anything Else for how to keep the plant bushy and compact.
Crispy brown Syngonium leaves A very common symptom of low humidity. Variegation changing For many houseplants, this is a result of incorrect light conditions over syngonium prolonged period. This may be the case here too, but remember the leaves of Syngonium's change as they mature, both in shape and variegation, so these changes could be normal. Pests Pests are thankfully quite rare. Generally you only need to watch out for Spider Mites and Aphids.

Get a PDF copy Home Plant guides How to care for a Syngonium How to care for a Syngonium Syngonium is a family of plants that has amazing tropical plants for beginning plant owners.
Syngoniums come in all shapes and sizes and have beautiful patterns on their leaves and stems. They're great plants for those of you who like to spend a little bit more time on your plants.
There are many different plants in the Syngonium family, but they all have similar plant care requirements. In this plant care guide, we're going to look at how you can take care of your Syngonium, keep it happy, and help it thrive. These are all topics we're going syngonium look at: • Watering your Syngonium • Sunlight for your Syngonium • The perfect soil • Fertilizing your Syngonium • Toxicity • Propagation Let's discover how you can help your tropical plant thrive!
Watering your Syngonium Back to top Syngoniums are tropical plants, which means they need humidity and moist soil. Syngonium in the Syngonium family generally don't store a lot of moisture in their stems, so they rely syngonium the soil to keep them hydrated. Because these plants rely on the soil to give them plenty of moisture, syngonium need to water it regularly. You shouldn't let the soil dry out completely, but you also don't want the soil to be wet.
It's time to water your plant, when the top inch (2.5 cm) feels dry to the touch. On average, syngonium should water this plant around once per week in the spring and summer.
During the fall and winter, you should water them less: around every 10 days to 2 weeks. When syngonium watering your plant, make sure to let syngonium excess water drain from the syngonium.
If the excess water stay behind in the bottom of the pot, this could cause root rot. Root rot is very harmful to your plant and could kill it. A simple solution is to use a pot with drainage holes to let the excess water escape. Sunlight exposure for your Syngonium Back to top Syngoniums are tropical plants, as we've discovered.
This means they're used to quite a bit of sunlight exposure in their natural environment. However, these plants are also quite small and tend to stay near the ground. It's natural living environment gives us syngonium great clue about the kind of sunlight exposure it needs.
The perfect sunlight exposure for this wonderful type of plant is bright, but indirect, sunlight. It's important to avoid exposing this plant to direct sunlight, because that will cause sunburns on its leaves. Your Syngonium will love the bright syngonium warm spot, as it's very much like its natural environment.
Syngoniums grow towards the light. If you don't want these plants to grow to one side too much, you should rotate it regularly. It's best to rotate this plant 90 degrees once per week. Each side will get the same amount of sunlight exposure and you'll help the plant to grow straight up.
The perfect soil for your Syngonium Back to top Earlier, in the section about watering your Syngonium, we found out that this plant thrives when it's in moist soil.
When a plant loves to be in moist soil, we need to think about the type of soil to use for your plant. Soil that's moist most of the time syngonium retain moisture for a longer period of time and not compact over time. The soil should retain moisture for at least 6 days without drying out. It's also important that the soil doesn't compact over time. When the soil compacts over time, it's difficult for oxygen to reach your Syngonium's roots.
When oxygen can't reach the roots, it's easy for root rot to happen. If you want to find out more about making your soil retain more moisture, have a look at How to make your soil retain more water?. Fertilizing your Syngonium Back to top Your Syngonium syngonium on the soil to provide it with moisture and syngonium to grow. A Syngonium is also a fast-growing houseplant, which means it absorbs nutrients in the soil quite quickly. It uses these nutrients to maintain it's fast growth and stay healthy.
You can help your Syngonium stay healthy during the growing period (spring and summer) by fertilizing it occasionally. During the growing period, you should fertilize the Syngonium every two weeks. You shouldn't fertilize it during the fall and winter because it will be in its dormancy period. When your Syngonium is in its dormancy period, it uses a lot less energy to grow, so the fertilizer will stay behind in the pot and won't be absorbed.
Over time, this will make the soil acidic and this is syngonium to your plant. The best fertilizer for these types of plants is a liquid fertilizer.
Liquid fertilizer is great for plants that use a lot of nutrients to grow and need to absorb it quickly. Toxicity for pets Syngonium to top Like many other tropical plants, plants in the Syngonium family are toxic for your pets. If you have pets or small children, it's best to keep these plants out of reach. If you have pets that like to chew on your plants, make sure to keep an eye out. The sap in the stems and leaves could cause indigestion and irritation when consumed. Make sure to contact your veterinarian if you notice your syngonium has chewed on your Syngonium.
Propagating your Syngonium Back to top When syngonium taken great care of your Syngonium and it has grown quite a bit, you might start to syngonium nodes on your plant. You can see one of these nodes in the photo above: a thicker part in the stem that starts to grow roots. You can propagate these stems with nodes by cutting off the stem about an inch (2.5 cm) under the node and putting the cutting in a jar with clean water.
The cutting will now slowly start to grow roots. Syngonium the roots are about 2 inches (5 cm), you can plant it in soil and you'll have successfully propagated your Syngonium. Conclusion If you love tropical houseplants that are easy to take care of, a plant in the Syngonium family is perfect for you.
It's quite an easy plant to take care of and it doesn't need a lot of special care. You can help this plant be happy by keeping syngonium in a bright spot and keeping its soil moist. Every two weeks, during syngonium spring and summer, you should fertilize it to help it grow syngonium and strong.
It's a great plant for beginning plant owners that want to learn how to take care of tropical houseplants, as Syngoniums are quite forgiving and recover quickly.
Thank you for reading this post! I hope it helps you to keep your plants healthy and beautiful!
