The Borrowed Nursery

Potted Plant- Peperomia


Light: The Syngonium does best in a bright but diffuse light. Keep away from direct sunlight as this can cause the leaves to burn. The syngonium can tolerate some periods of low light.

Water: Whilst it does like moisture, it should not be kept too wet. As the syngonium does well in humid conditions, it can benefit from a regular misting in addition to a watering approximately once to twice a week- more in warmer season and less in cooler

Position: Consider the lighting and water requirements above when finding the best location for the syngonium. Inside, it can be placed in a well light living room, bedroom or office. Outside, it can be placed on a shaded deck or verandah ensuring its kept away from direct sun and water requirements are met. It may dry out more quicker outside and in higher temperatures throughout the seasons.

Varieties: The syngoniums we source come in a range of varieties with the following foliage colour.

As plants are a living thing, they can be affected by the elements of nature including weather and seasonal changes. Autumn and Winter in particular will see plants become dormant and grow at a far slower rate than Spring and Summer. It's also important to keep in mind that even at the start of Spring, due to dormancy in winter stock can still be smaller. Keep in mind that the size of the plants pictured can vary in height and/or fullness by up to 50%.We attempt to source and offer the best quality stock that is available to us and hope you understand that elements involving nature are out of our control.
