I love the look of this beauty and have my fingers crossed that I can successfully grow and care for this plant. In general, its care is rather basic.
Medium to bright light is where the Syngonium ‘Pink Splash’ will probably enjoy life best. While some will say that it is low-light tolerant, I would still aim for more in the medium light range since you’ll not want those lovely pink areas to fade away back to green.
The general rule is to allow the plant to dry out somewhat between deep waterings. When you can feel dry soil down about to the first knuckle on your finger, that’s probably a good time to add some water. I will be growing mine in self-watering wicked pots so my watering will be a bit different. I will not keep the reservoir full all the time but will allow it to go dry for a day or so before adding water. It is going to be a test and learn, but I find that all self-watering pots only draw up what’s necessary to keep the plants lightly moist, so by allowing it to dry out a few days in between filling the water reservoir it should be fine. Again, learning and will provide updates as time moves on.
You’ll want a fast draining soil for your Syngonium ‘Pink Splash’ to prevent it from being overwatered.
There are so many wonderful plant websites around with far more details than I have here. Honestly, these are just as much for my own knowledge in caring for my new plants as they are to pass along information that works for me. I’m far from an expert, but there are those online who know far more than I do.
