Syngonium Soil & Plant Care Guide
Syngonium (arrowhead plant or arrowhead vine) is native to the rainforests of Central and South America (Mexico, Brazil, and the West Indies).
Growers love this Araceae species for its gorgeous variegation, foliage, and aerial root system, often keeping syngonium varieties like:
- Syngonium podophyllum (arrowhead philodendron, white butterfly, nephthytis, goosefoot)
- Syngonium podophyllum albo variegatum (syngonium albo)
- Syngonium podophyllum neon robusta (syngonium neon robusta)
- Syngonium pink splash (pink syngonium)
What do you need to grow these indoor plants?
Let’s explore syngonium soil, plant care, and propagation tips.
1. Best Soil for Growing Syngonium
To thrive, your arrowhead plant needs a:
- Nutrient-rich soil rich for growth and development.
- Well-draining potting mix with good drainage and moderate moisture retention. Overly moist soil can cause root rot.
- Aerated soil mix to let the roots breathe. Ideally, select soil with amendments like compost, biochar, or orchid bark.

2. Essential Syngonium Care For a Thriving Houseplant
Follow these simple arrowhead plant care tips:
The tropical plant prefers medium to low light conditions since the direct sun can cause leaf burn. Like a monstera, it thrives under:
- Partial shade — bright indirect light (not direct sunlight)
- Early morning bright light (bright indirect sunlight)
- Indoor plant lighting (grow lights)
- These indoor plants love temperatures between 60-80℉. Ideally, keep syngoniums away from windows during winter.
- Like other houseplant care practices, water your syngonium when the soil’s top 1-2 inches feel dry.
- Yellow leaves or a green leaf turning yellow may signify dehydration. Conversely, overwatering will cause root rot.
- The ideal humidity level for your indoor plant is 40-60%. If the humidity is low, use a humidifier (instead of misting) to maintain high humidity levels.
- Add fertilizer, like worm casting or organic liquid fertilizer, monthly during the growing season (spring to fall). Avoid fertilizing, whether organic or liquid fertilizer, in winter.
- Clean the houseplant leaves with a moist cloth every few weeks to keep pests like spider mites and mealybugs away.
- Use a moss pole to direct the aerial root system of your vining plant.
- Repot during the growing season if the plant’s root-bound.
Note: Syngonium cultivars contain calcium oxalate in their foliage — which is toxic if ingested by pets or humans.
3. Syngonium Propagation Tips
Like aroids, syngonium propagation is easy with mature plants.
How to propagate syngoniums?
- Take stem cuttings from your plant. Ensure each cutting has a green leaf or two and a couple of leaf nodes.
- If propagating in water, submerge one-third of the cutting.
- If propagating in soil, dip the cutting in a rooting hormone like honey before planting in moist soil like Rosy’s.
- Place the container in bright indirect light or indirect sunlight to see new growth and new leaves in a week or two.
My plants love it!
I’m really happy with this soil mix. I repotted four plants with this mix 2 months ago and my plants are very happy. My monstera has grown 6 new leaves sine repotting. I did major surgery on my jade and it has put out so many new little leaves. I do pick out little mushrooms often but it doesn’t bother me. Will be purchasing again.
Interesting soil seems great.
I’ve transplanted all that I could for about 3 weeks now and all of the plants appear very happy. I enjoyed working with it also. I would definitely plant more of my plants in the soil.
