Syngonium podophyllum, commonly called Arrowhead Plant, White Butterfly Plant or Goose feat. The nicknames are derived from the shape of its lush foliage, which grows beautiful arrowhead-shaped leaves. The colors of this plant can vary from dark to light green with a mix of white and even pink. Leaf resemble an arrowhead, feet of a goose, or wings of a butterfly. When properly cared for, this plant can mature and grow almost anywhere. The stems and leaves can extend and trail down or grow up a pole or wall. It is an evergreen climbing vine that typically grows to 3-6’ long. As a houseplant, it is typically grown for its attractive ornamental foliage which changes shape as the leaves mature. Juvenile leaves (to 5.5” long) are ovate with heart-shaped bases and sometimes with silver variegation. Leaves mature to arrow shape. Later leaves become pedate (to 14” long), each with 5-11 leaflets.
Tiny green to greenish-white flowers on a spadix are surrounded by a greenish-white spathe (to 4.5” long). Flowers are born in groups in the leaf axils. Flowers give way to brown-black berries. Plants rarely flower in cultivation.
Their ability to handle low light settings allows them to be grown almost anywhere. Of course, certain conditions still need to be met, such as growing at the proper temperature and sufficient watering.
