Syngonium Neon Robusta, or Pink 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 light green and dusty pink with striking vivid pink veins.
Its luminous, vibrant foliage makes this plant a stunning decorative element in any living space. Syngonium in Chinese Feng Shui is considered a lucky plant that brings fortune, health, wealth, abundance, and prosperity.
Syngonium Neon Robusta, which can grow up to 10-14", is also an effective air-purifying plant.
Syngonium Neon Robusta 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 pink hues, while scorching sunlight might burn the leaves.
Syngonium Neon Robusta 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.
Syngonium Neon Robusta thrives in temperatures between 60°F-80°F. It does not like temperatures below 50°F. This plant loves warm temperatures and high humidity. The average household humidity level (40-50%) is enough for Syngonium, but this plant loves high humidity (about 60%), so mist your plant often and use a humidifier when the weather is dry.
This houseplant should be fertilized once per month during spring, summer, and fall with diluted houseplant fertilizer.
