Syngonium Gold Allusion, or arrowhead plant, is a member of the Aroid family. This fast-growing trailing plant has beautiful arrowhead-shaped or heart-shaped foliage. The leaves are golden-yellow with striking dark pink to red veins.
Its luminous, vibrant foliage makes this plant a stunning decorative element in any living space. Syngonium Gold Allusion in Chinese Feng Shui is also considered a lucky plant that brings fortune, health, wealth, abundance and prosperity.
Syngonium Gold Allusion, which can grow up to 10-14", is also an effective air-purifying plant.
Syngonium Gold Allusion tolerates medium light conditions, but it grows better with lots of bright, indirect sunlight. A couple of hours of light per day help this plant to maintain its vibrant variegated colors. Low light conditions may strip off its golden hues, while scorching sunlight might burn the leaves.
Syngonium Gold Allusion is perfect for people with busy schedules, as it is mildly drought tolerant. This plant enjoys some moisture in the topsoil but it also tolerates short periods of dry soil when you do not have time to water it. Water thoroughly and let the soil dry out between waterings.
This plant prefers moist, loose, well-draining soils, which you can make by adding some peat moss or perlite to a houseplant soil mix.
