About Syngonium 'Milk Confetti'

Syngonium podophyllum is a popular, easy-to-care-for houseplant with beautiful arrowhead shaped leaves. You’ll often see these plants grown in their juvenile stage, but given something to climb on and abundant sunlight you may see them mature into their adult stage! The leaf shape changes as they mature and may even appear to split into three individual leaves. In the wild they can climb up to 65 feet tall. Be sure to handle them with care, as their sap contains oxalic acid which can be very irritating to the skin and eyes. 👀

Make sure that the petioles, located at the base of the stalks, are white. That seems to be a major indicator when differentiating between milk confetti and confetti syngonium.

Such a beautiful plant! Mine didn’t ship well, came with mild spider mites and in a pot too large. As a result it’s leaves slowly browned and fell off but it’s making a gradual come back now!
