Syngonium Podophyllum - ‘Merry Maria’

Notify me when this product is available:


Coming in a variety of colors and patterns, Syngonium Podophyllum are 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 it a drink, and these plants have the ability to adapt to varying lighting conditions. This variety, the ‘Merry Maria’, is known for its dark khaki leaves that emerge a pinkish red color.
