The Syngonium Albo is a species of the Syngonium plant genus known for its attractive, arrow-shaped leaves native from Mexico.
Here are some care requirements for this plant:
Light: The Syngonium Albo prefers bright but indirect light. It can also tolerate low light conditions, but direct sunlight can scorch its leaves, so it's best to protect it from direct sun exposure. You can also supplement grow lights for the winter months or year around for the biggest plants possible.
Water: This Albo Syngonium likes to have consistently moist soil, but not waterlogged. Watering once a week should be enough, but you may need to adjust based on the environment (Ex. Brighter light, higher temperatures, increased airflow and/or type of substrates).
Soil: The Syngonium Albo prefers a well-draining soil mix that is rich in organic matter. A standard potting mix or a mix of peat moss, perlite, and orchid bark will work well from our experience.
Humidity: This Syngonium prefers a relatively high humidity (50-60%+), but it can adapt to average household humidity levels over time. If the air is dry, you can increase humidity through a couple ways: pebble tray, grouping plants together, or using a humidifier.
Temperature: This plant prefers warm temperatures and can tolerate temperatures as low as 60°F (15°C), but it is best to keep it above 70°F (21°C) if possible. You want to mimic their natural environment in the wild.
Fertilizer: The Syngonium Albo can be fertilized every 2-4 weeks with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer, or weekly with a half diluted concentration.
It's also important to note that this plant is a climber and can grow quite large with big leaves, so be sure to provide it with a sturdy support (moss pole or plank) and enough space for it to grow.
Additionally, the Syngonium Albo may produce aerial roots that can help anchor the plant to its support and absorb moisture from the air.
