Common Name: Pink Arrowhead Vine
Botanical Name: Arrowhead Vine 'Berry'
The prettiest pink vines run throughout the Syngonium Pink Allusion plant's leaves, creating a matrix of sinuous channels. This arrowhead houseplant arrives with a full head, but if you choose not to prune it, you can transform this plant into a cascade of longer, colorful vines. These indoor plants are low-light tolerant but will produce more intense colors when exposed to brighter indirect light.
Syngonium Pink Allusion prefers bright, indirect light. This plant does the best in medium to high light conditions but should be protected from exposure to direct sunlight at all costs. You should place your plant in a location where it's provided with filtered light – near a window that is facing north or east. Those areas would be ideal for your plant.
You should aim to water your Syngonium Pink 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 3 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 Pink Allusion plants like well-draining soil that lets extra water easily flow out while avoiding soggy conditions that can cause the roots to rot. The mixture that can help drainage includes perlite, sand, or vermiculite.
Usually, this plant prefers a slightly acidic to neutral pH level. Aim for a pH level around 6.0 to 7.0. Although the soil should be well-draining, it's also important to let it retain some moisture. This will maintain the plant's hydration between watering it. You can use a mix of peat moss or coconut coir for water retention.
A Syngonium Pink Allusion plant thrives most in warmer temperatures. In the daytime, your plant should be in a temperature range between 65 degrees to 80 degrees. And, in the nighttime, your plant can handle temperatures that are a bit cooler - ranging from 60 to 70 degrees. Aim for consistency in the temperatures, as it is better for this plant's health.
Higher humidity is best for Syngonium Pink Allusion. This is because it is initially from tropical regions where the humidity is naturally higher. Ideally, this plant should be kept at a humidity level of around 50% (or higher). This will help keep the plant feeling as if it's more at "home." We suggest increasing humidity levels, you mist your plants often leaves, providing a humidity tray, using a room humidifier, or grouping plants. These are all options you can choose from if you need to increase humidity for your plant!
Fertilizing your Syngonium Pink Allusion once every 2 to 4 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.
The mature height that Syngonium Pink Allusion can reach usually ranges from 1 to 2 feet (30 to 90 cm). However, this plant's height is typically on the lower end of the range in an indoor setting.
