Syngonium White Butterfly

Syngonium podophyllum 'White Butterfly'

A beautiful Syngonium with mottled leaves which resemble butterfly wings and turn whiter as they age. If cared for correctly, this plant is easy to grow and its soft, subtle colour will add interest to any room in your home. As a vining plant, it looks wonderful cascading from a hanging basket or your favourite shelf, however you can also add a mosspole or trellis and let it climb to add some vertical interest to your houseplant collection.

How to care for your Syngonium White Butterfly

Native habitat

Native to the tropical rainforest of Central/South America and the West Indies.

Light and position in the home

Your Syngonium will be happiest in bright, indirect light. By an east or north facing window is ideal. Avoid full, direct sunlight.


Slightly drought tolerant but will prefer regular watering for optimum growth. These plants can be susceptible to root rot, so water only once the top 1-2 inches of soil feels dry and ensure your pot and potting mix have good drainage.
