What is the difference between Syngonium Chiapense and Syngonium Macrophyllum? Good question!
Syngonium Chiapense is an easy growing, low maintenance plant that is fast growing and a joy to grow. Personally, it is one of my favourites at any stage of growth.
18 months ago, I picked up a reverted Philodendron Domesticum Variegatum as a “Project plant”, to see if I could turn that variegation around.
As the seedlings become a young plant they often become leggy and will lean to the side, as they become top heavy. When this happens, you will notice there are a lot of air roots sitting above the soil. It is at this stage, that I like to do a re-pot for a few reasons.

Recently, on Instagram, I was asked by another collector, how to tell the difference between Anthurium Pallidiflorum and Anthurium Vittarifolium. A good question and one that is often not very clear, especially here in Australia, where sellers are labeling the cheaper Vittarifolium as the more expensive Pallidiflorum.

Velvet leaves, especially on Philodendrons are another aroid that Spider Mites love. I have come to realise that any sign of yellowing […]
At the end 2020, when Adelaide went into lockdown for Covid, I started a little project with the aim of growing big Philodendron Mican leaves. This requires height and I am providing this with a big Coir Pole that I can extend later on. Ideally, the velvety leaves will grow larger as the vines climb […]
PEST CONTROL: Mealy Bugs
Until Recently, mealy bugs were not an issue that I had encountered. A change of location for my greenhouse, now has me quite used to the little deamon critters. When in small doses, they dont seem as extreme as some other bugs, such as spider mites. Left to breed and expand their invasion of your […]
Well… YES, IT LOOKS LIKE THEY CAN! In my Plant Profile on Monstera Siltepecana ‘El Salvador’, I noted how I read about how this plant (Siltepecana’s in general) can shingle. Though, finding an example has been near impossible. However, both my own Monstera Siltepecana and Siltepecana ‘El Salvador’ have kindly decided to grow in a […]
