White Butterfly Syngonium Overview
Syngonium 'White Butterfly' is an evergreen climbing cultivar in the aroid family, Araceae. It's commonly grown as a houseplant for its attractive foliage. Keep it moist in the growing period but allow to dry out a little in between watering during the winter. Keep in medium to bright light, out of direct strong sunlight as this can damage the leaves. It produces mottled, light green, arrow-shaped young leaves with attractive creamy-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. It produces arum-like flowers, but rarely in cultivation. It is not frost hardy and therefore most suitable to grow as conservatory and glasshouse specimen.
