Absolem, a Syngonium White Butterfly or Syngonium Podophyllum, is a jungle-dwelling plant with arrow-shaped leaves that are mottled with bright green & white colours. His leaves actually look like the wings of a butterfly, hence the nickname!
Native to Mexico, Brazil and Bolivia, Absolem is a climbing plant, which means he's more commonly found attached to larger trees. As he likes to climb, you could always add a stake or coir pole so he can reach his full potential.
Absolem, Syngonium White Butterfly - Small
Absolem prefers bright indirect light to partial shade, without prolonged exposure to direct sun - a touch of morning sunlight however would be welcomed.
If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:
- Minimal shadow = lower light
- Half shadow = indirect light
- Full shadow = direct sun
