Syngonium Macrophyllum ‘Frosted Heart’, is an easy to grow plant from the Aracae family. It gets its name from the ‘frosty’ leave coloration that looks almost iridescent. Its foliage is thicker and rounder than that of other popular Syngoniums with leaves that are heart-shaped.
As the plant ages it will begin to vine, therefore putting it in a hanging basket or letting it grow on a brass chain support might be a good idea!
Syngonium Care Tips
Syngonium thrive in bright indirect light, but will tolerate low light environments. However, please note that generally, the more variegation (i.e. coloration on the leaves) your plant has, the more light it will require to survive. Avoid exposing your Syngonium to direct sunlight, which might scorch the leaves,
Wait until at least the top 3-5cm of soil are thoroughly dry before watering your Syngonium again. Then, water thoroughly and empty excess water in the saucer, because sitting in water can cause the plant’s roots to rot. In the cooler months, you will not need to water your plant as often as during the growing season.
Most Syngonium are not very picky when it comes to humidity and will grow well in moderate humidity of 40%-50%. One exception is Syngonium Rayii, which needs a terrarium environment to survive.
However generally, the more humidity you can provide iyour Syngonium with, the faster it will grow. They will benefit from 60% or higher.
Syngonium will grow well if kept in common household temperatures. Do not let temperatures drop below 15 degrees Celsius or rise higher than 30 degrees. Make sure to keep it away from cold drafts from windows during the winter months.
Being Aroids, Syngonium appreciate a well-draining potting mix such as our Aroid Potting Mix, which was developed specifically for this plant genus. If you prefer mixing soil yourself, a loose mix containing coco coir, pine bark and perlite will be ideal for this plant.
Fertilise your Syngonium regularly during the growing season. We recommend adding liquid fertiliser at half the recommended dose at least twice a month during the growing season. Only fertilise during the colder months if you supplement lower light conditions with grow lights and the plant is still growing.
Syngonium are TOXIC to humans and animals when ingested.
