Caring Tips


Mottled Syngonium has a slight resistance to drought, but the plant will prefer regular watering for development. When the plant is growing actively during summer and spring, water it only when the top inch of the soil feels dry. If you put your finger into the ground, and the top inch feels dry, your plant is thirsty and needs water. Nevertheless, during the dormant phase of Mottled Syngonium, the growth is slow, and you won’t have to water it frequently.


Mottled Syngonium is quite adaptable to the amount of light it needs and tolerates. It will perform excellently when placed in bright to slightly low light settings. However, if grown indoors, it will thrive in a place receiving bright light. Plant placed in the dark becomes untidy, leaves begin to lose color and turn yellow, and there is less leaf growth. If you notice any of these warning signs on your plant, move it to a brighter location immediately.

Mottled Syngonium is part of the family of Araceae. Other common names for the plant are Syngonium Podophyllum and Arrowhead Ivy.
