Syngonium podophyllum is an evergreen climbing species in the arum family, Araceae. Its commonly grown as a houseplant for the attractive foliage. It produces vibrant light green, arrow-shaped young leaves with attractive silver-white venation, the leaves develop into a completely different structure with age. Mature leaves are divided into 3 lobes or 5-9 distinct leaflets and these do not closely resemble the young arrow-shaped leaves. They produce arum-like flowers, but rarely in cultivation. Being tropical rainforest plants, they are not frost hardy and are therefore most suitable as conservatory and glasshouse specimens.
