About the plant:
Syngonium Milk Confetti climbing plant from the Araceae family . Their home is tropical South and Central America, especially Mexico and Brazil. The greatest diversity of species is in Panama and Costa Rica. In their homeland, they are considered invasive plants. They grow like creepers even in the crowns of other trees, their height can reach 10-20 meters. They form aerial roots and grow very quickly. In its youth, the plant does not need support, but during its life it begins to change its leaves to lobed and create climbing stems that may require support.
Syngonium Milk Confetti is a rare (collectible) type of milk color with pink variegation "spots". In good lighting conditions, the syngonium can be almost white, and the pink spots are more pronounced.

The plant needs enough diffused light for healthy growth. Avoid direct sunlight, which could burn the leaves. The ideal site is the north and east side near the windows or the west side with fading weak sunlight.
We water sparingly about once every 1-2 weeks. However, let the upper part of the substrate dry out between waterings. Overwatering could cause rotting of the roots. Keep the substrate always moist.
This is a tropical plant, therefore it requires increased air humidity and loves dewing of the leaves.
Stem cuttings or top cuttings ideally in spring. Top cuttings with a growth point are propagated in water or peat. After the roots appear, you can transplant into the substrate.
Overwatering: Too much water can cause root rot, yellowing or leaf drop. Insufficient watering: We can tell that the plant lacks water by the yellowing of the white parts of the leaves. Cool and damp habitat: Root rot and poor growth. Browning of the tips of the leaves: Little irrigation, too low air humidity, calcareous water. Brown spots on leaves: Burn of leaves from direct sunlight.
