Syngonium ‘Chiffon Allusion’ thrives most in bright, indirect light and likes to be in a spot with filtered sunlight, where it gets enough brightness without any direct exposure to intense light! Direct sunlight exposure to this plant can lead to leaf burn. To ensure even growth for your plant, rotate the pot every few weeks so that all sides get equal exposure to the light.


You should aim to water your Syngonium ‘Chiffon Allusion’ plant every 1 to 2 weeks in the spring and summer months. Plan to water less often in the fall and winter, approximately every 2 to 4 weeks – or as needed. When the soil feels dry, you'll know it's time to water this plant. You can check soil moisture level by putting your finger into the soil. 


Syngonium ‘Chiffon Allusion’ prefers well-draining soil that lets extra water flow out easily. You should use a peat-based potting mix, which gives good aeration and moisture retention (without becoming overly soggy). Organic matter should be incorporated into the potting mix, providing your plant with essential nutrients, and supporting overall plant health. The pH level for the soil should be between 5.5 to 7.0 for the best growth!  


A Syngonium ‘Chiffon Allusion’ plant thrives most in warmer temperatures. Your plant should be in a temperature range between 60 degrees to 80 degrees. Aim for consistency in the temperatures, as it is better for this plant's health.  


Higher humidity is best for Syngonium ‘Chiffon Allusion’. This is because it is initially from tropical regions with higher humidity. Ideally, this plant should be a humidity level of around 40% to 60%. You can increase the humidity levels near your plant by misting the leaves, using a humidifier, providing a pebble tray, grouping plants, or putting your plant in a bathroom or a kitchen area. 


Fertilizing your Syngonium ‘Chiffon Allusion’ once every 4-6 weeks is ideal during spring and summer. You can reduce or pause fertilizing this plant in the fall and winter. During the cooler months, this plant doesn't require as many nutrients as it does in the warmer months. When fertilizing your plant, choose a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer with equal amounts of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, like 20-20-20 or 10-10-10. Ensure that you follow the fertilizer package directions to know the dilution rates. Be sure not to over-fertilize, as that can lead to salt buildup in the soil and could lead to root damage.
