Syngonium podophyllum 'trileaf wonder'

Height (cm)
Pot diameter (cm)

A tropical plant with curious shaped leaves, rarer than its Syngonium 'arrow' cousin. It requires bright conditions with mainly indirect light and likes moist but well drained soil. The Trileaf Wonder grows very quickly and doesn't need much to be happy.

Watering

Water regularly during warmer months but allow the soil to dry out between each watering and make sure the roots are never sitting in water for a prolonged period. Water less frequently during colder months.

Light requirements 

Will benefit from plenty of indirect light but can also tolerate lower light conditions. May suffer a bit if it gets too much direct sunlight. A lack of light can lead to leggy stems/ low growth rate / loss of leaves. 

Care tips

  • Avoid placing the planter next to radiators or draughty windows
  • Carefully wipe the leaves from time-to-time to remove any dust
  • Prune out any brown leaves or stems by cutting as close to the next stem or the base of the plant as possible
  • Use some fertiliser during warmer months i.e. April to September (little and often is best for consistent growth)
