These plants are easy to care for, they grow fast and they’re super cute. The Pink Syngonium has beautiful pink foliage and its leaves are shaped like an arrow.
The Syngonium family is usually quite tolerant to low light conditions but this variety needs a little more sunlight due to the unique pink colour of its leaves. The more light the plant receives, the more colour and vibrancy you will see in its foliage. Although this variety enjoys natural sunlight, it doesn’t like to be in full, direct sun as its leaves will burn.
The colour of your leaves will generally be a result of the plants lighting conditions. If they’re too light, it may be getting too much light. If they’re quite dark and more of a green than a pink, the plant may not have enough light. Try new spots in the home and see how it responds. It’s normal to have a mix of leaves, some appearing pink, some green and some in the middle. If you notice your Syngonium looks a bit leggy, it’s likely reaching for some more light. Try and move the plant to a brighter spot and trim it back to its original shape if desired. Use scissors or snips to remove any damaged or dying leaves so that it can redirect its resources to the healthy parts of the plant. Avoid the use of leaf shining products on this plant.
This plant can be toxic if ingested by humans or animals, so be sure to keep it out of reach of children and pets. We always recommend doing your own research on the toxicity of plants and making your own decisions about whether the plant is the right one for your home.
