Syngonium Podophyllum, commonly called Variegated Arrowhead, is a great way to add dimension and extra foliage to your favorite plant shelf! While they’re similar in appearance to an Alocasia, we find that they’re far less temperamental if you’re a new plant parent. The leaves begin to droop when it’s ready for water and quickly bounce back once you give them a drink, and these plants have the ability to adapt to varying lighting conditions. Variegated Arrowheads are a fun challenge, sure to bring a smile to your houseplant heart.

The Variegated Arrowhead (Syngonium Podophyllum albo-variegatum 'Marble') is a bit trickier than its non-variegated counterparts, but if you have other rare or variegated plans in your collection it shouldn’t be a problem. The most important thing to watch out for is the light levels- you need enough light to keep it from reverting, but not so much that the white sections begin to burn!
