Syngonium erythrophyllum is a small and delicate house-plant grown for its foliage. Its beautiful glossy leaves are dark to coppery-green in colour with reddish undersides. This is low maintenance and easy to propagate the plant. If you allow it to grow long it will become a dandy vine. This plant is beautiful enough to make a hanging basket or decorate any pot for the table or window of your house.
The water requirement of the plant is normal to high. You can water once or twice a week in summer. However, biweekly or once a week watering is enough for the plant in winter. Make sure that the upper 3 layers of the plant are dry before you water it again. Always avoid overwatering, as it is a gateway to many plant issues like fungus, discolouration, drooping and rot.
It is adaptable to a variety of sunlight conditions from partial shade to dappled and bright indirect light. It can also bear shade for a few days. However, avoid putting the plant in direct sunlight for long hours, as this may burn the plant.
It is resistant to a variety of humidity levels. Being native to the rainforests, it will grow bright and healthy foliage in humid environments.
In highly dry days, you can mist the plant slightly. However, it is better to mist in the morning or early afternoon. In addition, keeping the leaves wet for long is not advisable as it will lead to fungus and leaf rot.
The soil should be well-drained. Always make sure that there are drainage holes at the base of the pot.
