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.
1ft to light, indirect
4” pot with drainage

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.
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?)

Why don't you want an all white leaf?
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.
