Best Locations For Growing Milk Confetti Arrowhead Plant
With its light color, the Milk Confetti Arrowhead will do best in bright, indirect light. Syngoniums appreciate a bit of extra humidity, so this plant will do well in a bright bathroom or kitchen. The Milk Confetti Arrowhead is a stunner, standing out on its own or adding a pop of color to a group of plants. Syngoniums are toxic plants, so care should be taken when placing the Milk Confetti Arrowhead in a home with children and pets.
Milk Confetti Arrowhead Plant Sunlight Requirements
Variegated and non-green plants tend to need bright light because their ability to photosynthesize (turn sunlight into energy and food) is limited. For this reason, place the Milk Confetti Arrowhead in a spot where it can get all-day bright, indirect light, such as an east-facing window or slightly away from a west- or south-facing window, protected from harsh afternoon sunlight. When in a lower light spot, supplemental light may be needed to keep this plant happy and healthy.
Milk Confetti Arrowhead Plant Care
Like other Syngoniums, Milk Confetti is fast growing and trailing, requiring little maintenance when provided with plenty of bright light and watered regularly. This plant can remain in the same pot for a couple years at a time. When repotting, choose a pot with drainage holes that is an inch or two larger than the previous pot. Syngoniums do best when grown in loose, airy soil that drains well.
Watering Milk Confetti Arrowhead Plant
Allow the top two inches of soil to dry out before watering the Milk Confetti Arrowhead Plant deeply, until water flows out the bottom of the pot. The frequency of watering will depend on lighting, temperature, and humidity. This plant will generally need water about once a week or two in the summer, and even less frequently in the winter.
Feeding Milk Confetti Arrowhead Plant
The Milk Confetti Arrowhead Plant benefits from regular fertilizing in the spring and summer, when the plant is growing the most. One to two times a month, dilute liquid houseplant fertilizer into water, taking care to follow dilution recommendations to avoid damaging the plant’s roots. Too much fertilizer can often do more damage than no fertilizer at all. Fertilizing in the winter is unnecessary as plants are not growing as actively.
