This plant originally grows in Middle-America (Mexico) and belong to the family of Araceae. The plant grows well under humid circumstances: it prefers 50 per cent humidity. Syngonium also stands dry air.

Typical for this plant are the green leaves. The young leaves are oval without incisions. But when the plant gets older the leaves are shaped as an arrow and it splts it selves.

Because we start with this plant from cuttings it has immediately the typical arrow shape leaves. Plenty of light or semi-shade, cannot withstand strong sunlight. Ideal temperature 18-22, soil-warmth 25-30C. Avoid draughts. Keep the soil moist but do not allow the soil to dry out, give water once a week. Fertilize slightly once every fortnight, fertilize once every two months during the winter.
