Variegated Syngonium Overview

Syngonium podophyllum albo-variegatum is an evergreen climbing cultivar in the aroid family, Araceae. It's commonly grown as a houseplant for its attractive variegated green and white foliage. Known commonly by the names Syngonium Albo Variegata, Variegated Syngonium, Variegated Arrowhead Vine and Syngonium 'Emerald Gem', it is sometimes sold under these names. Keep it moist in the growing period but allow to dry out a little in between watering during the winter. Place in medium to bright light, out of direct strong sunlight as this can damage the leaves. It produces green, arrow-shaped young leaves with attractive creamy-white variegation. 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.
