Syngonium 'Pixie'

English name:

Syngonium 'Pixie'

Latin name:

Syngonium podophyllum Pixie

About me:

I am a mini member of the Syngonium family which has numerous common names: Arrowhead Vine, Goosefoot Plant, African Evergreen and American Evergreen. My variegated leaves are my main attraction.

Useful to know:

Origin

I come from the rainforests of Costa Rica mainly

Height/Growth

As my name suggests, I won't grow big - up to 40cm

Light

I like bright light but no direct sunlight please

Water

My soil needs to be evenly moist when you water me, then leave the top layer to dry before watering me again

Temperature

I'm more than happy living in normal room temperatures of between 16-24°C

Feeding

Fertilise me once a month throughout the year - my dormant period is very short

Grooming

I am a creeper, so pinch off any straying vines that make me look messy

Care

I love a misting as humidity will keep my leaves from crisping up at the edges

Toxicity

I am toxic so please don't eat me

Fact

My leaves change shape as I age from arrow shaped to a five lobed form as I mature
