The Syngonium 'Pink Splash', also known as the Arrowhead Plant, is a desirable houseplant for its beautiful, variegated leaves with shades of green and pink. Here's a guide on how to care for this beautiful plant:

  1. Light: The Syngonium 'Pink Splash' prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate lower light conditions. However, too little light can lead to less variegation in the leaves. Avoid direct sunlight as it can cause the leaves to scorch.

  2. Water: Keep the soil lightly moist, but avoid letting it become waterlogged as this can lead to root rot. Typically, watering when the top inch of the soil feels dry to the touch is a good rule of thumb.

  3. Humidity: As a tropical plant, the Syngonium 'Pink Splash' enjoys high humidity. If your environment is dry, consider using a pebble tray with water, a humidifier, or misting the plant regularly.

  4. Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix for your Syngonium. A good mix could be a general indoor potting soil with added perlite or orchid bark for increased drainage.

  5. Temperature: This plant prefers warmer temperatures, ideally between 60°F and 75°F. Avoid placing it near cold drafts or in areas with sudden temperature changes.

  6. Fertilizer: During the growing season (spring and summer), feed your plant every 2-4 weeks with a balanced houseplant fertilizer diluted to half strength. In fall and winter, you can reduce feeding to once a month or less.

  7. Repotting: Repot your Syngonium 'Pink Splash' every 2-3 years or when it becomes root-bound. The best time to repot is in the spring or early summer.

  8. Propagation: The easiest way to propagate Syngonium is through stem cuttings or division. Make sure each cutting has at least one or two nodes and roots are present if you're dividing.

  9. Pest Control: Regularly inspect your plant for common pests like spider mites, aphids, and mealybugs. If you see any, treat with an insecticidal soap or neem oil.

  10. Leaf Care: Wipe the leaves with a damp cloth occasionally to keep them clean and free from dust.

Remember, all plants can vary in their needs depending on their environment. Monitor your plant's health regularly and adjust its care as needed. With the right conditions, your Syngonium 'Pink Splash' can be a vibrant and eye-catching addition to your houseplant collection.
