Here you go @sushiwaitress #foliagefriday -- the funny little tuft off to the side is the putative "Neon Robusta" which has stayed very compact and non-drapey so far...

I love these arrowhead vines. My grandmother was so good at growing them but I just kill them.

You're doing fine Eileen the leaves look healthy. It does grow slower but let another leaf or two come out then snip them off snd root them, add them back to the pot. I don't try to train mine upwards, l have it in big pot to drape down. And a few others in various stages of growth

@lesliecole49 the snip-and-root thing is not working for me at all. From now on I am going to just plug a root node into the soil without detaching it from the mother plant to multiply them... @sushiwaitress how do your Syngoniums die on you? What is going wrong? Killing one of these is almost like killing a plastic cactus LOL

comment
heatherdirtyhands

Idk maybe it's too much foliage to be supported but such little roots? Maybe make them smaller cuttings or cut the leaves in half across or remove the leaves and just do the cuttings by node? I know that sucks but my guess is its just too much

34w
comment
heatherdirtyhands

Or just try to hang on till a root pops out?

It should root within a week. You do have nodes in the water...? 🤔

At least 6 nodes in water water @lesliecole49 but they aren't budging in nearly THREE weeks. 🙄

34w
comment
lesliecole49

Wow, hmmm, maybe cut off a couple of the bottom nodes, to refresh it so to speak and cut off some of the end leaves and try rooting them too

How #easycare is this baby? It's totally happy in a glass of water. When the stem roots I'll plant it in the pot with the parent which was unfazed by being clipped down more than halfway... #foliagefriday

This is what I mean...the leaves at the base have zero white variegation, and as you go higher and higher on the vine the leaves are much whiter #foliagefriday

It's here!!! Just wondering what taggers think of the new variegated plant growing in something like this bright yellow pot -- minus the sweet potato vines. I tried it in a dark blue pot and it didn't have any zing at all. Or is it too hard to tell looking at this terrible photo? #interestingfoliage

After a frenzied search I found a seller in California. Sent for it just now. Every other plant I could find shipped from freaking Indonesia. Not that they weren't stunning plants, but $150 shipping for a $90 plant is a little steep.
