Syngonium Plant Care
Houseplants & Flowers


Syngonium plant is native to tropical Central and South America and is also known as nephthytis. Other common names are Arrowhead plant, Elephant Ear plant, Butterfly plant and Goosefoot plant. Please see pictures below for identification as all those names can be confusing.

Syngonium House Plant

Syngonium House Plant

Syngonium is an easy plant to care for and grow as long as it is placed in a bright light situation. It will tolerate lower light levels with reduced watering frequency. For the best results, bright light is needed.

Houseplant questions or problems? You can send a houseplant question but before you do, please read this information on watering your indoor houseplants, how to help keep your house plant's root system healthy and lighting for your houseplants. These are most important for your house plant's health and this is some of the information I will refer you to when you send an email.

If kept in a moist, humid environment Syngonium will produce aerial roots and will attach to surfaces much like a Pothos or Philodendron Cordatum or will root in the soil resulting in a nice ground cover. Use it in a terrarium, as a table plant, hanging plant or a climbing plant.

Temperatures for Syngonium should be kept above 60°F. It is not a plant to expose to cold temperatures.

Bright light and high humidity will be beneficial to syngonium. It will become thin, weak and leggy in low light. A spot next to a window with bright, indirect light is ideal. Some morning sun is okay but keep out of hot, afternoon sun. Regular showers with room temperature water are great for Syngonium, helping to increase humidity and discourage insects.

Watering Syngonium House Plant

The soil can be kept somewhat moist, especially during spring and summer, with a reduction in watering your syngonium during fall and winter months, allowing the soil to almost dry. Do not allow to dry completely but also avoid constantly soggy soil. See sections on watering your indoor plants and indoor plant lighting for further information that will benefit your houseplant's health.

A new plant can be somewhat prone to insect problems. I have seen Syngonium with mites, mealybugs and thrips. Purchase healthy, insect free plants to avoid these pesky problems. Always inspect plant roots and foliage before you buy.

Distorted foliage, spots or holes in leaves, brown soggy roots should all be avoided. To keep your Syngonium happy and pest free, use a spray bottle to wash down weekly with water, making sure to hit the underside of the leaves. This will discourage insects and provide humidity.

Thanks for visiting and come back soon as plant care information, pictures and more are being added all of the time. I hope that your indoor plants and all of your plants and flowers are happy, green and growing because that is why I started this site
