Red Heart Syngonium

Red Heart Syngonium Care Guide


Red Heart Syngonium prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate lower light conditions but may lose some of its vibrant coloration. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves and cause them to fade or develop brown patches.


Water the Red Heart Syngonium when the top inch of the soil feels dry. Ensure thorough watering, allowing excess water to drain away. During winter or cooler months, reduce watering frequency as the plant's growth slows down.


Maintain moderate to high humidity levels, ideally between 50-70%. Use a humidifier or mist the leaves occasionally to increase humidity, especially in dry indoor environments.


Keep the Red Heart Syngonium in a warm environment with temperatures between 60-80°F (15-27°C). Avoid exposing it to cold drafts or extreme temperature fluctuations.


Feed with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Skip fertilizing in winter when growth slows down. A fertilizer higher in phosphorus can help promote vibrant leaf coloration.


Red Heart Syngonium is toxic if ingested and can cause irritation to pets and humans. Keep it out of reach of children and pets.

Additional Care Information

Use well-draining soil to prevent waterlogging and maintain good root health. Prune the Red Heart Syngonium regularly to maintain its shape and encourage bushy growth. Red Heart Syngonium can be propagated easily through stem cuttings. Simply cut a healthy stem below a leaf node and place it in water or moist soil to root.


Yellow Leaves: Indicates overwatering or underwatering. Adjust your watering routine and check soil moisture. Leaf Drooping: Usually a sign of overwatering or root rot. Check the roots for signs of rot and adjust your watering routine. Pest Infestation: Red Heart Syngonium can be susceptible to common houseplant pests such as spider mites, mealybugs, and aphids. Regularly inspect the plant for signs of pests and treat with insecticidal soap or neem oil as needed.
