Syngonium 'Sunshine's' stand out feature is the pink veins running through its bright green, arrow-shaped leaves. This plant looks almost luminous if you place it in a well-lit spot where its leaves can catch and reflect the sun.
Syngonium has many names: Arrowhead Vine, Goosefoot Plant, African Evergreen Butterfly plant and American Evergreen. Don't be discouraged by their vibrant, tropical appearance - they are surprisingly easy to care for!
A lot of people are unaware that the Syngonium is actually a vining houseplant and will start to grow upwards if you supply it with a pole or trellis, alternatively, you can leave it to trail, you can prune it back to maintain a bushy appearance.
Light: Bright, indirect sunlight will produce the biggest leaves but also really show off the plants bold, varying colours.
Water: During the growing season water regularly, wait until the soil is dry before watering again. For best results water from underneath with the use of a saucer to reduce the chance of root rot.
Food: As the plant can keep growing all year round, feed it lightly once a month yearly as long as it is growing.
Humidity: These plants thrive in a high humidity situation, a decreased humidity will cause brown, crispy leaves.
**** some plants/leaves may have scaring, this happens in transit. As the plants grow they will either be replaced or you can remove them as the plant grow, it will not affect the overall health or growth of the plant****
**** All our plants are sent out via Royal Mail first class Mon - Thur, rarely do we lose parcels in the post but recently we have had a few customer contact us saying they have not received items. So to cover us and you if your item is “ lost in the post “ I will provide you with a reference number and you will need to do a online claim through Royal Mail as your item will be covered, we can not do this for you as they will only pay the full amount to the customer with a copy of their proof of purchase ( which is a simple screen shot/ copy or your online sale) This usually takes a few days for them to process and investigate.
Alternatively I can send your item out 1st class signed for, this will be an additional cost to you so please contact me after purchasing your plant if you would prefer this option.
All our plants are sent Royal Mail 1st Class
Pots are usually sent 2nd class but if you order both they will be dispatched 1st class.
