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.
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.

Philodendron Atabapoense I recently won an Ebay Auction for a P. Atabapoense cutting. This was on my wishlist, but I didnt expect to get one just yet. Its one of the more expensive and harder to find on my list. So to get a cutting for such a good price was a win for me. […]

A beautiful birds nest Anthurium. I picked this plant up on EBay without knowing anything about it. It’s simple and quietly textural at a small size, however, this plant will get big, really big. Origin: South America. Southern Columbia to Brazil and Southern Bolivia. Found at low elevations (100 – 160m) on white sands and […]

It was first published in 1957 and is not a common plant within most aroid collections around the world.
