Syngonium wendlandii

 

Silver Goosefoot Plant

This is a twining vine with clasping aerial roots and long creeping runners that root at nodes, reaching 0.6m height if creeping on ground without support. It produces velvety green leaves with off-white to silvery feather-variegation in centre and along major veins. Vigorous and easy to grow. Use well-drained but moisture-retaining media. Prune back periodically, if shrubby form is preferred.

Planting young plants

From Early Spring TO Late Spring

They do pretty well when planted in small pots, however if you are watering more frequently or growth has slowed (and you want more), repot into a bigger pot during Spring using any standard compost mix. The soil should be light and free draining. In sub-tropical cilmates, this vine will grow well in dappled shade given adequate support on which to climb
