What kind of potting medium is that? It looks like straight peat in the picture.

Your syngonium looks very healthy.

Hi TG,

Looks fine from here, looks like you found a nice one.

Just so you know, these are regarded as medium to lower light plants. Personally, I wouldn't give it any stronger or more direct light.

Sorry, I'm a tad confused, if you just repotted it (assuming new mix) why would you want fertilizer so soon?

there are two of them in the container and yes i did just repot them. i think plants in lower light grow better in bright indirect light. i did move it to a shadier position

Hi there,
I'm a bit of a novice myself. Your Syngonium looks great. I was wondering how many hours of light it's getting?


 o
RE: Nursing along Arrowhead vine Wondering about Health

it gets bright light all day but there is no burning so i have no concern

I think you may like the pattern of the variegation better in less light. New leaves may also be pink. If that spot has enough light to keep the Tradescantia that dark, it's enough to wash-out the patterns of the Syngonium leaves.

Here's some Synogium I'm growing in water. Will be moving them to a darker spot that needs a bit of green..

I did it in water, 'cause somehow I only had a piece or 2, not enough for as pot.

TG,

Bet yours is going to do well, it looks healthy, but that was a good point made above not to let it get too washed out.

Very pretty, PG!

The pink leaf is a very new, young one. This group of plants had many more, much more pink leaves until I hung it from the pecan tree. Not all shade is equal, as I'm constantly shown by the plants and the various places I stick them. (Potted with a Begonia.)

Purple,
Is that the arrowhead you found in your yard?

Planto

Yes, Planto - great memory!

That is a pretty begonia and arrow purple

TY, TG! More pics of it here. The Begonia was recently bought, a dragon wing.

I'm not sure your Syngonium can make pink leaves. I got a little one last year that could be the same as yours, very similar. It has not made any pink leaves (yet) but it does have a lot of pink in the middle veins of the newer leaves.

You've got a lot of individuals there, if you wanted to experiment with different exposures simultaneously, but understandable if you don't want to get more pots going for that. When separated, each one takes up very little room, as PG's pics show well. If you have empty space(s) in other existing pots, some companion planting might work. I have an old fork that works well for adding plants along edges like that.

Hoping your plant is still doing well, TG. What's it doing? Now that the tree is shading this plant more, the new leaves are pretty pink again.

RE: Nursing along Arrowhead vine Wondering about Health

Yes purple they are doing well. They are drooping lots of leaves and are getting more vinelike, but that is the natural nature of this plant, unless you have the white butterfly hybrid
