Leggy or not??

saturn1956(6)January 25, 2014

The name escapes me for this house plant of ours, but I am not sure if it gets to a certain height then starts getting leggy or
the plant is drooping for other reasons. It is near a glass door gets filtered sun baseboard is behind it so it does get some rising heat. Actually had to stake one side because it looked like it was falling over.

Syngonium? Isn't it a sort of their nature to vine as they get older & bigger?

PG is correct. That's a Syngonium, also known as "Arrowhead Vine." It is indeed in their nature to vine. I'm pretty confident that it's wanting to "fall over" because it wants to vine. The older they get, the more they vine.

To vine, yes, but that plant is drooping not vining.

Any reason why it could be drooping instead of veining?? It gets filtered sun maybe the heat from the baseboard below??

It looks pretty normal to me, not bad at all. That bowl under the pot is concerning, but as long as water isn't allowed to pool in the bowl, it can't hurt anything. I would use something like that make sure it didn't damage my pretty quilt too.

Have to agree with purple. It looks like an older specimen, do you know how old it is?
