Syngonium 'Strawberry' Description

The Syngonium 'Strawberry' is an alluring variety of Syngonium, often prized for its unique coloration and easy care. Known for its vibrant pink leaves, this plant adds a splash of color to indoor spaces, making it a popular choice for those looking to brighten up their home or office with a touch of nature's beauty.

The Syngonium 'Strawberry' features arrow-shaped leaves that are a soft shade of pink with hints of green around the edges. As the leaves mature, they may develop more green hues, but the pink remains dominant, offering a striking contrast to the typical greenery of most houseplants. This plant typically grows in a vining habit but can be kept compact with regular pruning.

Care Plan for Syngonium 'Strawberry'

Light: This plant prefers bright, indirect light to maintain its vibrant leaf coloration. It can tolerate medium light, but the intensity of the leaf color might diminish. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves.

Watering: Water the 'Strawberry' when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. It’s important to provide consistent moisture but avoid overwatering, as Syngoniums do not like soggy soil conditions. During the winter months, reduce watering slightly as the plant's growth slows.

Humidity: Syngonium 'Strawberry' enjoys high humidity but will tolerate average indoor humidity levels. If you notice the leaf tips becoming dry or brown, consider increasing the humidity around the plant with a humidifier or by placing a tray of water nearby.

Temperature: Ideal temperatures for this plant range between 60-80°F (15-27°C). Avoid placing it near drafts or areas with sudden temperature changes.

Child and Pet Safety: Like other Syngonium varieties, the 'Strawberry' is toxic if ingested due to calcium oxalate crystals, which can cause irritation and swelling in the mouth, tongue, and throat, as well as gastrointestinal upset. Keep this plant out of reach of children and pets.

General Tips: Fertilize every two months during the growing season with a half-strength balanced liquid fertilizer. Regular pruning will help maintain a bushy, compact growth and encourage more vibrant leaf production. Wiping the leaves with a damp cloth can help keep them dust-free and improve the plant’s overall health.
