of flowering plants in the family Araceae, native to the tropical rain forest. Syngonium is woody vines growing to
heights of 10–20 m or more in trees. Syngonium have leaves that change shape
according to the plant's stage of growth. Syngonium species are often grown as
house plants. It is an elongated, climbing or creeping herbaceous evergreen
plant that reaches a height of 10-20m. The stem is green and performs
photosynthesis, but with age, the plant cells stem lose chlorophyll.

spring and summer, with a reduction in watering your Syngonium during fall and
winter months, allowing the soil to almost dry. Do not allow to dry completely
but also avoid constantly soggy soil. See sections on watering your indoor
plants and indoor plant lighting for further information that will benefit the health of your houseplants.
