Also known as Syngonium Neon, this pretty and delicate goosefoot plant does wonders for a bright corner where it can be neglected and still grow strong.
The leaves with time will change from an arrow shape into a five-pronged 'goosefoot' shape where it can soften the appearance of sharp corners in a room and purify the air of Co2 and intoxicants.
We absolutely love this plant for its unusual combination of bright colouration and ease of care. The light salmon pink of the leaves forms a lovely gradient into the green of the stem and underside.
It is naturally a climber, so you can give it something to latch onto or let it gradually spread across a counter or surface (or wall.) They also bush out very nicely so you will have plenty of thick foliage in no time, whether or not you choose to prune back is up to you!
Temperature It originates in Africa, so it's used to a hotter climate. Try to keep it above 13°C.
WateringAllow the compost to dry out between waterings, then give it a good soaking and make sure the pot has plenty of drainage.
Feeding A very weak liquid plant food once or twice a month during the growing season.
Tips This plant is easy to propagate. Just take a cutting and make sure that 3 or 4 nodes are attached and place in water. You will have to wait at least 3 weeks before roots start appearing, so be patient!
Light Level A nice bright spot with plenty of filtered light. The delicate leaves are easily scorched though, so avoid direct sunlight to keep that gorgeous rosy colour.
