PLANT OF THE WEEK
The low-maintenance Goose Foot Plant
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.
