Tropical Central and South America
Syngonium podophyllum 'White Butterfly' is one of the most popular varieties and has greenish-white leaves edged in dark green. You can keep the White Butterfly plant pruned so it only has juvenile leaves, or you can allow it to mature and climb up a trellis or support sticks.
Keep the potting mix moist in summer, allowing the surface to dry out before watering again. Water less often in winter, letting the top half of the potting mix dry out.
Bright light, but no direct sun. The White Butterfly plant is a great container plant for shady balcony gardens that don’t get much direct sunlight. If you have a southern exposure with bright light, it will do better in an indoor garden. It tolerate low light, but the leaves may lose their variegation. Turn pot regularly for even growth.
Any good potting mix. Use a container with good drainage.
Feed every 2 weeks from except in winters with a balanced house plant fertilizer diluted to half the normal strength. In winter, feed monthly.
