nice syngoniums, maggie! i actually quite like them, as they look like caladiums, got that 'arrowhead' shape, which i love....but don't want to get into too many 'collections'...i suppose one advantage of syngoniums over caladiums is that they get 'bushier'? :)/>

the more the merrier. actually, syn is so economical to collect and extremely hardy. and very versatile too- soil, leca, water-babies, glass pebbles...
and nv water for a few days, no problem. if all leaves die off, no problem- just plant stem / cane and it bounces back...can train it to climb wall or pillar too...

and put side by side with caladium- very nice...

just trying to figure out if they are many other syn out there in the world....

philodendron, i think....much more viney than syn..also, i believe most syn, when young (aka sold in nursery) have arrowhead shaped leaves..the leaves only start looking less like arrowhead when they start to vine.

syngoniums really look like caladiums. How about the growing condition ? What is the difference between them ? How to differentiate?

i also saw this one at amk long time back...i initially thought it was caladium, but the leaf count too high. i love the colors, so random, but i didn't really dig the twisted & distorted leaves, so didn't buy...

I just got this at AMK nursery too -

Think it's the same type? Mine is small compared to yours though - almost like a cutting, with a not very well-developed root system. But if my experience with syngoniums has taught me anything, it is that these plants are almost indestructible, and will grow like anything if given the chance, so I'm not too worried. :D/> No major problems with pests or diseases, right?

hi theo and GB

i have got 5 pots of syngonium and fast losing interest in them.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3061/3092655062_6a664e2301.jpg
theo, your pic of this is very pretty. the gloss of the leaf is well-captured. yes, i think ours alike and yes, they ARE indestructible and so versatile in their propagation methods etc. but the recent rainy season has brought this problem...

http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll76/maggielimwong/P1060327.jpg
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll76/maggielimwong/P1060324.jpghttp://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll76/maggielimwong/P1060325.jpg
can anyone tell me if this is serious and wat to do?

er...you 2 guys wan to adopt my syngoniums? i sian leow la. they are just sitting there occupying my top shelf...
GB, i realise after everything, HOYA will be my first love...the very sight of it makes my heart flutter. as for syngonium, i just sweep my eyes over them and hardly cast a second glance...sad hor?
