Syngonium Mottled (young plant)
Syngonium Mottled is a unique rarity that will surely please collectors of new and sought-after varieties. This hard-to-get climber impresses with large, sagittal and highly elongated leaves with a variegated color in various shades of green with a creamy note. The leaf blade has very deep indentations at the base and on the sides, which divide it into three parts. The leaves have slightly wavy edges, which gives the whole plant a bit of airiness. Peculiar to the Mottled variety are the finely spotted, dark and light green spots that cover the entire leaf blade. Some leaves also have cream and light yellow freckled discoloration, which makes each leaf unique and original speckled. The plant forms a climbing habit, so it should be grown next to supports, e.g. by stakes covered with moss. You can also systematically trim its shoots and lead them in the form of a compact clump, thus limiting the growth in height. As the shoots grow, they will start to sprout air roots, thanks to which the plant in nature climbs trees and other supports and draws moisture from the atmosphere.
