Syngonium palophyllum
'Tri-leaf Wonder'

Tri Leaf WonderProbably one of the easiest houseplants to grow. It will tolerate most any light situation. However, in the shade the leaves will lose some of its variegation and become smaller. Bright light will produce larger and brighter green leaves.

Propagation is done by cuttings. The nodes root nicely.

The plant likes warmer temperatures, good drainage, and fairly humid conditions.

Fertilizing every two weeks would be fine, letting up for the winter.

SyngoniumSyngoniumA good potting soil for growing this plant in a container would be one part sharp sand, one part peat moss, and two parts standard potting mixture.

Diseases and insect attacks are rare.
