Syngonium plants are not just decorative, they have the ability to cleanse the air you, breathe and act as anti-pollutants. These plants can reduce components of indoor air pollution, even volatile organic compounds such as benzene, formaldehyde, toluene, and xylene. They also reduce airborne microbes and increase humidity.
Researchers from NASA and other organizations have approved this plant as an air purifier, and it tops the list. Syngoniums absorb pollutants into their leaves, and the toxins go to the root zone where they are transformed into nutrients for the plant. Houseplants also emit water vapors that help the plant pull polluted air to the roots where the plant converts the toxins to plant food.
Caring is an easy task for this species. Syngonium/ Goosefoot plant/ Arrowhead Vine is an excellent houseplant for low light (no matter what you call it!). Popular for more than a hundred years, arrowhead plant has withstood the test of time because it’s both attractive and easy to grow. Young arrowhead plants are bushy and usually pretty full, making them attractive indoor plant choices for coffee tables, side tables, and other surfaces.
Light: Does best in bright filtered light. It should never be subjected to direct sunlight, as that would scorch the leaves. If you notice more growth on one side then turn the pot because that side is likely to be receiving more light (this will even growth out).
Watering: Keep the soil moist during the growing period. Allow the plant to dry out slightly between waterings in winter.
Special Care: Clean the leaves every fortnight to free them from dust accumulation. It would also help a lot to mist the plant as often as possible with water. Pruning during summer will encourage new growth and make the plant bushier in appearance.
