Variegation Help!
My Syngonium Albo has two areas where it’s coming in all white. It’s so young I have no idea where to cut it. Please help. #HappyPlants #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #NewGrowth #Syngonium
1ft to light, indirect

Syngonium are vines, so it's just like when you cut a new leaf off a pothos, etc.

You could always:
1. Wait for another leaf to pop out, then cut the albino if you're nervous.
2. Cut down below a node (though it looks like they are too young for that)
I would cut it at the base of each albino leaf individually since it doesn't look like they are the same stalk.
@PlantMompy Where would any new growth on the stalk come from? That’s what I’m worried about since they are the newest leaves. (I’m assuming once a leaf has grown from one stem, no other leaf can grow there?)
I agree with @PlantMompy 🌿🤍

Why don't you want an all white leaf?
@PLA They die off. They don’t have chlorophyll and can’t photosynthesize. If it keeps producing white, the plant won’t be able to keep itself alive :(.
This is so interesting. 🤔 I totally would’ve kept it cause they look cool, now I know better.
