This plant has large, arrow shaped leaves and comes in a variety of gorgeous colors, from bright green to a muted pink. They like bright, indirect light. Allow the soil surface to dry out before watering. A very easy houseplant to grow.Syngoniums (pronounced sin-go-nee-umz) are such interesting indoor plants they have earned several fun common names, including Arrowhead plants, Five-fingers, Nephthys (after the Egyptian & Greek mythological figure Nephthys, sister of Osiris) and Goosefoot. Some common names refer to the shape of the leaves at different stages of development. Grown as houseplants since at least 1881, they are closely related to the philodendron. Though the ancestors of these lovely plants from tropical Mexico and Central America were mostly plain green, there are new varieties with subtle shades of bronze and pink blushing onto the leaf blade from the region of the stem. Syngoniums look great grown alone or can add character to a mixed planting. They even make a good substitute for caladiums in the summer garden. Arrowhead plants will spill out of a hanging basket when they are young or climb a pole as they mature. As they mature the arrowhead shape of the leaves changes and lobes develop at the base of the leaves. The older the plant is, the more lobes the full-sized leaves will have. All green Syngoniums will tolerate medium to low light, but the variegated ones will lose their markings unless they have bright light or filtered sun. None of them likes to be exposed directly to the sun. Because the sap from Syngonium is an irritant, it will appear on lists of poisonous plants.
