Hello Carol Ann. Russ in central Fla here, member of the Aroid Society
discussion group. I had your email
from the end of May still saved on my computer, and wondered if you had any
luck in obtaining the
Syngonium you wanted. I assume the 'highly dissected' form you requested
would simply be a fully mature tip cutting. You probably already know this:
After climbing a tree or post to maturity, leaves go from small and
entire, to larger and dissected 3, 5, 7, 9 lobes. If the tip becomes
disengaged from the surface it will start to go back to the immature, entire
leaf form with much more distance between nodes; a 'runner' if you will,
finds another surface to climb. Philodendrons change form when they climb|
also, some develop huge leaves, also the common yellow variegated 'Pothos'.
At any rate, I can send you any number of this form of S. podophyllum. I
grows like a weed on my mother's lattice privacy fence in Cocoa Beach, and
can be quite
invasive here. I have a large collection of rare Aroids, mostly
Philodendron, Syngonium, Monstera, Alocasia, Aglaonema, etc. I think the
white variegated form of S. podophyllum would be more decorative for
your greenhouse, and it will become dissected also, but in a much smaller
form that the all green type, which
can get leaves a foot or more across. I could send this in immature form
also, or others if you're interested.
