Syngonium erythrophyllum is a beautiful foliage plant that has almost a reddish-black or bronze or chocolate hue on its leaves. Erythrophyllum essentially means red color, which actually represents its leaf color. Its origin is from Colombia. But now it’s naturalized in many tropical countries.
It has a waxy texture on leaves which helps the plant to retain its moisture on leaves. They are not very compact in nature and can grow very long. They are perfect for hanging baskets for this reason. If you are a person who stays in an apartment with limited space, then there may be spaces with low light for your plants and in this case, Syngonium erythrophyllum will do just fine there because of its low light tolerance. There is no need for continuous watering on this plant. So if you go for a break or forget to water plants, then they will survive.
This plant is a slow grower. And they love organic compounds to grow in. You may wait up to two years to see it fill an entire pot for better aesthetics. One of the great advantages of this plant is that they are extremely resistant to pests like most syngoniums. So you won’t probably have to use any pest warding chemicals.
This plant can also be grown under the indirect sun. If given a support using moss stick or coconut stick, they would love to climb. This plant has arrow-shaped leaves too. For this reason, they are also called red head arrow Syngonium.
While growing, younger leaves have greeny color, and when mature they turn dark coppery color.
Its propagation is easy. Cut stems. Keep at least a single leaf on a stem cutting. Then wash stem cuttings to remove a whitish discharge from the stem. Then transfer stem cutting in a water container for water propagation. Remember to keep the lower portion of the leaf stem too underwater but not leaf foliage. In a week, you can see roots. Now transfer these rooted cuttings to the soil that is rich in organic compounds.
Due to its unique leaf coloration, this plant is getting more and more popular the world over. You too can have this now in your gardens. Order from himadri to receive it.
