True to its name, Syngonium wendlandii 'Black Velvet' is an exceptional houseplant native to Costa Rica. Its leaves, a dramatic display of velvety dark green to black, boast an intriguing silver vein pattern that adds a touch of elegance to its already sophisticated presence. When fully grown, this stunning specimen will reach a height and width of about 12 to 18 inches, making it a perfect centerpiece or a charming accent in any indoor space. In a terrarium or a mixed-plant display, its compact growth habit and trailing vines create a lush, tropical atmosphere. When planted in a hanging basket or elevated pot, it will begin to trail over the edges, creating an enchanting waterfall of dark foliage. Although it's a relatively slow grower, its dramatic leaves and unique form more than make up for the wait. The Syngonium wendlandii 'Black Velvet' is not just about foliage, though. It occasionally surprises with small, hidden white flowers that appear amidst the dark leaves, adding a delightful contrast to the plant's dark palette. These flowers are generally rare to see and add an element of surprise to the plant's appeal. Caring for the 'Black Velvet' is relatively straightforward. It prefers bright, indirect light and a humid environment to maintain its lush appearance. Regular watering is necessary, but take care not to overwater as it can lead to root rot. The plant is also a climber by nature, so providing it with a moss pole or similar support will encourage it to climb and further showcase its beautiful foliage. The Syngonium wendlandii 'Black Velvet' is a captivating houseplant that promises to add a touch of luxury to any indoor garden. With its striking dark leaves and contrasting veins, it creates an impressive display that is sure to be the highlight of any room. Enjoy the mesmerizing beauty of this tropical plant as it transforms your indoor space into a lush, green paradise.

Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
