Syngonium podophyllum green splash / grey ghost
Syngonium belong to the family Araceae and are native to tropical rainforests in southern Mexico, the West Indies and Central and South America. What makes this plant species particularly exciting is the many different colors and variations. The rare Syngonium green splash is very popular among collectors and lovers of foliage ornamentals. The heart-shaped leaves are cream to light green in color with a pink sheen. But what makes them particularly exciting are the contrasting dark green spots and speckles. With this particular leaf pattern, it stands out from any living room jungle, making it popular for a reason.
As soon as the Syngonium green splash forms shoots, you should support it with a climbing stick. For this purpose, commercial vine sticks for climbing plants or homemade from Sphagnum moss are suitable. Because in the wild it would grow up to 20m in height on a huge jungle tree. The substrate of this rare dream plant should never dry out completely, optimal is a continuous uniform moisture in the pot ball. Before watering, the top layers of soil should dry slightly to avoid waterlogging. How often you actually need to water then depends greatly on the light, humidity, size of the plant and that of the pot. Syngonium is happy with increased humidity, bright indirect light and temperatures between 18° and 23°.
