Another of NASA’s top houseplants to clean the air, the Syngonium, or Goose Foot Plant has a trailing tendency and loves creeping its way around the house when you’re not looking. The stunning leaves of this variety are a beautiful marshmallow pink!  

The arrow shaped leaves change to five lobed as they get older. This makes Syngoniums  a popular Feng Shui plant as the leaves represent the five elements: water, fire, wood, earth & metal.

Comes in a 15cm grow pot. Decorative pot sold separately.

Caring for Goose

Light

Medium to bright. Syngoniums can tolerate lower light conditions, but may get leggy or scrawny as the stems grow to reach for the light. For a fuller plant move to brighter light, but don't expose to direct sun or leaves will burn.

Water & humidity

Keep the soil slightly moist, allowing it to dry between watering in winter. The more light Goose gets, the more water it should get. Goose likes warm environments, just like in his Central American jungle home. He'll benefit from humidity, but won't throw a tantrum if the air gets a little dry.

Feeding

Syngoniums are fast growers and need to eat to keep up their energy levels. Feed every second month with organic fertiliser. Halve the recommended dose as too much fertiliser could cause the leaf colour to change or fade.

Re-potting

You can re-pot Goose in regular potting mix. Re-potting frequency depends on how big you want the vine to get. Trailing plants generally don't need large containers.

Atrium Top Tip

As a Feng Shui plant, place the Syngonium in front of a corner or angle indoors. Chi flows across smooth surfaces and walls, and a corner can disrupt this flow. Syngoniums are said to restore the chi. Prune during summer to keep the plant looking bushy.

Quirky plant fact

Goose is a South American hottie, frequently found shaking his tail feather in the nightclubs of Mexico and Brazil. As well as being an air purifying plant, he has a high transpiration rate, which means he raises humidity and moisture in a room. No wonder his admirers get worked up in a sweat.
