ABOUT OUR TRILEAF WONDER
Hi, I’m Tara The Syngonium Podophyllum Trileaf wonder. Luckily for you my common names are less of a mouthful. I go by the arrowhead plant, arrowhead vine, goosefoot plant and African evergreen - just to name a few. Each one of my stems produces three dark green leaves which are easy to maintain and beautiful to admire. I’m quite a rare beauty and not as easy to find like some of the other Syngonium species. I like to think this makes me extra special.
I’m originally found in Mexico, Costa Rica and Ecuador with the other 33 species of Syngonium. Here we enjoy warm temperatures and high humidity which is a tropical plant's dream. We are all very adaptable to our surroundings and won’t fuss over care conditions.
When it comes to finding the perfect spot for this plant you’re really spoiled for choice. Its trailing vines will look glorious in a living room, bedroom or dining room. My dark green leaves are very fast growing and can be trained to climb and vine very quickly. I must warn you that I can be rather toxic if ingested so it’s good to keep me on a high surface away from any curious pets.
With my fast growing vining abilities and low maintenance nature I’m an amazing find for anyone looking for something rare and easy to care for.
