What is Syngonium Confetti?
Hailing from the Araceae family, Syngonium confetti is a tropical aroid featuring large arrowhead-shaped leaves. The pale green foliage stands out with speckled pink variegation that looks like blood clots against the dull background. Young leaves often appear more heart-shaped, while mature leaves display the characteristic arrowhead shape, with lobes extending outwards from the central leaf vein.
With a compact growth habit and low care needs, the plant can beautifully sit in small pots making for an attractive tabletop or work desk addition.
Ideal Pot Size
Get a pot that is one inch bigger than the plant’s root balls; ideally, a 4-6 inches pot will be good enough for a young Syngonium Confetti. This will allow the roots to spread and grow without becoming overcrowded. As the plant grows, you might need to repot it to a one-size bigger container, which may take 2-3 years. Ensure to drill enough holes to drain out excess water from the base.
Syngonium Confetti Propagation
Syngonium confetti can be propagated easily through stem cuttings in these easy steps. Get a healthy, disease-free mother plant, a sterile clipper, a pot with drainage holes, and some well-draining potting mix to proceed:
- Choose a healthy stem with at least two or three leaves and make a cut just below a leaf node using sterile clippers.
- Remove the lower leaves from the stem, leaving only one or two leaves at the top.
- Dip the cut end of the stem into rooting hormone powder to encourage root growth.
- Plant the stem cutting into a small pot filled with moist potting soil.
- Cover the pot with a plastic bag or clear plastic wrap to create a humid environment.
Place the pot in a bright, indirect light and keep the soil moist. In about 4-6 weeks, the stem cutting will be rooted and should be provided with a favorable growing environment.
