Water requirements Syngonium Red Arrow - 30cm
The Syngonium Red Arrow needs average water. Try to keep the soil always slightly moist but beware of too much water. Too much water can cause root rot and this is difficult to save. We recommend to feel with two fingers in the soil to determine whether it is already time for a new watering. If the soil is already very dry after two days, you can water your Syngnonium again. If the soil is still very wet after a few days, we recommend waiting a while.
