Syngonium Milk Confetti [Complete Care Guide]

As someone who loves plants, I was so excited when I found out that I could grow my own indoor jungle. Due to their ease of care, I started with a few Syngonium. 

I soon fell in love with the Milk Confetti variety because of its beautiful pink variegation on leaves. In this blog post, I will share with you how to care for your own Syngonium Milk Confetti plant so that you can enjoy its beauty indoors.

Plant origins

The Syngonium Milk Confetti plant is native to Central and South America. It is a member of the Arum family and is closely related to the Philodendron plant. 

The Syngonium plant is a climbing or trailing type of plant that can grow 6-8 feet in length. The leaves of the plant are oval-shaped and have a pointed tip. The leaves are also variegated, meaning they have several different colors on them. The most common colors on the leaves are white, green, and pink.

The Syngonium plant is a popular houseplant because it is very easy to care for. The plant does not require a lot of light or water and can tolerate low humidity levels. The plant can also be propagated easily by cuttings.

The Syngonium plant is a popular gift for new homeowners because it is known to bring good luck.

How much light does a Syngonium Milk Confetti need?

Syngonium plants thrive in certain light conditions. I have found that Syngonium Milk Confetti plants need bright, indirect light to thrive. They do best in a brighter spot with plenty of natural light, such as near a window.

However, they should not be placed in direct sunlight as this can cause the leaves to burn. This plant also does well in artificial light, so I suggest keeping it near a desk lamp or other source of light throughout the day.

Additionally, it’s important to make sure that the plant has adequate air circulation, so be sure to give it plenty of space and avoid crowding it with other plants.

Soil needs

When caring for this plant, it is important to provide it with the right soil mix.

A mix of loam, peat moss, and sand works best. This mix provides the plant with the drainage it needs to prevent its roots from becoming waterlogged.

The soil should also have a slightly acidic pH level of around 6.5. Finally, adding some compost or fertilizer to the soil helps keep the plant healthy and strong.

Watering your Syngonium Milk Confetti

I have been taking care of my Syngonium Milk Confetti for a while now, and it has been a rewarding experience. To ensure that it remains healthy, I make sure to water it regularly. I usually water it once a week, depending on how dry the soil is. Make sure the soil is dry at least 2 inches from the top before watering next time.

I also make sure to mist the plant’s leaves every few days to keep them hydrated. When I water, I use lukewarm water and avoid over-watering, as this can lead to root rot.

Additionally, I make sure to water the soil deeply so that the water reaches the roots. 

Temperature & Humidity

It is important to understand the temperature requirements for this plant to make sure that it is happy and healthy. The ideal temperature for Syngonium Milk Confetti is between 65-85 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and 65-75 degrees Fahrenheit at night. 

Temperatures that are too cold can cause the leaves of the plant to turn yellow, while temperatures that are too hot can cause the leaves to burn.

It is also important to keep humidity levels between 40-70%. Too much humidity can cause leaf spots, while too little humidity can cause the leaves to become dry and brittle. With the right temperature and humidity levels, Syngonium Milk Confetti will thrive!


I like to fertilize my Syngonium milk confetti about once a month. I recommend using a slow-release fertilizer, which allows the nutrients to reach the roots of the plant gradually.

Additionally, I like to add some fish emulsion to the soil when fertilizing. The fish emulsion contains phosphorus, nitrogen, potassium, calcium, magnesium, and sulfur. These elements help promote growth, increase resistance to disease, and improve overall health.

Repotting Your Syngonium Milk Confetti

As time goes by, you may notice that your Syngonium milk confetti starts to look tired. If this happens, it’s time to repot it.

To repot your Syngonium confetti, first, remove all of the old potting medium. Then, carefully dig out the entire container and replant it in a new one. It is important to place the plants in a hole that is large enough so that their roots can grow.

If you’re unsure whether or not your Syngonium is ready for repotting, you can always ask a professional gardener. They’ll know what size pot to put your plant in, and they’ll be able to tell if it needs more space.

How to propagate a Syngonium Milk Confetti

Syngonium is a type of plant that is easy to take care of and propagate. They can be propagated by taking cuttings from the plant and rooting them in water or soil. 

To take a cutting, you simply need to find a healthy stem with a few leaves and cut it off just below the leaves. Put the cutting in a jar of water, and be sure to change the water regularly. The cutting should start to produce roots within a few weeks. 

Once it has formed enough roots, you can transfer it to a pot of soil, and it will continue to grow. Syngonium is also easy to propagate from cuttings because they form aerial roots, which make it easier for the plant to take root.

What’s the difference between “Milk Confetti” and “Confetti”?

The Milk Confetti plant (Euphorbia lactea) and the Confetti plant (Euphorbia pulcherrima) are both members of the same plant genus, Euphorbia. 

However, they differ in several ways. The Milk Confetti plant has a compact, shrub-like form and is characterized by its greyish-green, triangular-shaped leaves. It grows to a height of around 1-1.5 meters and is covered in small, white bracts.

The Confetti plant, on the other hand, has a more upright form and is characterized by its bright green leaves and red-tipped bracts. It typically grows to a height of around 0.5-1 meter and is covered in bright pink and yellow bracts.
