Native to tropical areas from Mexico to Ecuador, this is a perfect house plant for beginners because it is hard to kill and doesn’t require specific care. It will vine up to 10′ (3 m) with leaves that can grow up to 8″ (20 cm).

The leaves have a leathery texture and a bright emerald green color which is quite unusual for the Syngonium. This beginner-friendly plant will tolerate low light conditions but will grow at a fast rate if you give it lots of bright indirect sunlight.

Lighting

This plant will thrive best when receiving lots of indirect bright sunlight or dappled sunlight. A couple of hours of direct sunlight per day won’t hurt the plant. However, keep it away from too much direct sunlight because this will eventually burn the leaves. A great thing about this plant is that it will also tolerate low light conditions.

 

Temperature

Cebu Blue is relatively low maintenance. So, when it comes to temperature, it can tolerate many types of household temperatures. The key is to allow this plant to acclimatise to its environment and then work to keep it stable. Avoid placing it next to any air-conditioners, fans, or heating elements.

Watering 

Like many other plants, watering is depends on the environment they're in and on the weather. If the plant receives more sun, it needs more water. If it’s winter and the plant doesn’t receive as much sun, the plant needs less water.

Syngonium Macrophyllum is a plant that likes to have its soil fairly dry in between waterings. Water this plant when the top 2 inches (5 cm) of the soil get dry. It’s also not a problem if you forget one watering once in a while.

Humidity

As with temperature, Cebu Blue pothos doesn’t seem to have any outlandish requirements with humidity levels!

Soil

Syngonium likes to grow in a well-draining potting mix, a good aroid mix will also do perfect for this plant.

Fertiliser

Syngonium macrophyllum doesn’t require a lot of fertilizer. When it comes to fertilizing plants, I always say: less is more! Dilute the fertilizer to 1/2 or 1/4 of its strength, this way you will never use too much.
