Syngonium podophyllum 'Pixie' is a great plant to keep in a terrarium, as it is small in size and can tolerate high humidity levels. Here are some guidelines for keeping your Syngonium podophyllum 'Pixie' healthy and happy in a terrarium:

  • Choose the right terrarium: Make sure the terrarium is large enough to accommodate your Syngonium podophyllum 'Pixie', but not so large that it will take up too much space. You can use a closed or open terrarium, but make sure there is good ventilation to prevent mold and other issues.

  • Use the right substrate: Syngonium podophyllum 'Pixie' prefers a well-draining soil mix, so choose a substrate that is specifically designed for terrariums or make your own mix with perlite, coconut coir, and sphagnum moss.

  • Provide proper lighting: Syngonium podophyllum 'Pixie' prefers bright, indirect light, so make sure your terrarium is placed in a location that gets plenty of natural light or provide artificial lighting if necessary.

  • Maintain proper humidity levels: Syngonium podophyllum 'Pixie' prefers higher humidity levels, so mist the plant regularly and consider using a humidifier if necessary. Make sure to monitor the humidity levels inside the terrarium to prevent mold growth.

  • Water properly: Water your Syngonium podophyllum 'Pixie' when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch, but be careful not to overwater, as this can lead to root rot. Use a spray bottle or watering can to water the plant, and make sure any excess water can drain away.

  • Fertilize as needed: Syngonium podophyllum 'Pixie' can benefit from regular fertilization, but be careful not to over-fertilize, as this can lead to leaf burn. Use a balanced fertilizer diluted to half strength every 2-3 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer).

  • Prune as needed: Syngonium podophyllum 'Pixie' can be pruned to control its size and shape. You can also pinch off the tips of new growth to encourage bushier growth.

By following these guidelines, you can keep your Syngonium podophyllum 'Pixie' healthy and thriving in a terrarium.
