PLANT OF THE WEEK

The low-main­te­nance Goose Foot Plant

Yorkshire Post - YP Magazine - - Gardens -

WE’RE stay­ing in­side this week with one of the most pop­u­lar and easy to care for plants – Syn­go­nium, the Goose Foot Plant. Some peo­ple grow them big and give them a sup­port to climb, but most folk sim­ply keep them com­pact and con­tent where there’s plenty of light (but not di­rect sun) and a rea­son­able tem­per­a­ture (60F in win­ter). Keep them moist but not wet and re­pot reg­u­larly. Prop­a­ga­tion is sim­ple – split a healthy plant and pot up rooted pieces. Noth­ing much both­ers them, though aphids may try to move in.
