Plant Care – Syngonium Ngern Lai Ma
Light: Place your Syngonium Ngern Lai Ma under bright and indirect sunlight, and do avoid direct sunlight because it will cause its leaves to scorch and dry up. Syngonium can tolerate low light conditions. However, it is not an ideal environment for them to grow in.
Water: Water your Syngonium thoroughly and ensure that the soil is evenly moist. Water your plant whenever the top inch of the soil is dry to the touch, and make sure to water till some water flows through the pot’s drainage holes. Underwatering will cause its leaves to dry up and turn brown.
Soil: Syngonium thrives in well-aerated soil that drains water quickly and, therefore, should not be placed in soils that are too compacted and heavy, which causes prolonged periods of water retention. And this can lead to root problems, for instance, root rot. We recommend using a gritty mix for your Syngonium: mix 2 part peat moss, one part pumice and one part perlite.
Fertiliser: For best results, fertilise with a slow-release granular fertiliser. Over-fertilising can also result in the demise of the plant. Always follow the fertiliser manufacturer’s instructions when fertilising your plant.
Humidity Requirement: Medium To High
