Syngonium chiapense is quite unlike most other syngoniums. The leaves grow to two feet long and do not become deeply lobed and split, instead keeping their shield-like shape. It resembles a philodendron, but the irritating white sap is a clear giveaway to its placement in the syngonium genus. This is a vigorous climber and will do best with a support that its aerial roots can cling to.
The variegated version sold here is considered rare, and displays as a gorgeous, sectoral cream and white color.
