Syngonium podophyllum (Syngonium white butterfly)

The Syngonium podophyllum is the most commonly cultivated species of the Syngonium genus and is native to Latin America. Sometimes called, Arrowhead plant, Arrowhead vine, Arrowhead philodendron, Goosefoot, African evergreen or American evergreen. This variety, White Butterfly has variegated green arrowhead-shaped leaves, marked with pale green and cream. As the leaf matures it can resemble a butterfly, hence its name. Even though the White Butterfly is hardy and easy to grow, they prefer a semi-shaded position with indirect sunlight. Keep the watering consistent but do allow the top layer of soil to start to dry between watering’s. As the White Butterfly likes humidity, its perfect for indoors and works well in pots, grown-up totem poles or cascading down in a hanging basket.
