Plant ID and Hello!

CorpsmanCooper(FL8b)October 1, 2011

Hello all! I'm not usually on this forum. I mostly hang out on the Cacti/Succulent forum and the Florida Gardening forum but I have a few house plants. I suppose you could actually call most of my Cacti and Succulents house plants since the majority of them need to come in during the winters here in North Florida (if you want to call it a winter). I have a conundrum. A fellow Florida gardener was gracious enough to send me a few plants and seeds. She sent me this beauty but I'm not sure as to what it is. She said she believes it to be a philodendron pink princess but I'm not so sure. I did a google search and that's not exactly what it looks like. Here's a picture. Can you help me with an ID?

Hi CC,

I seem to be following you, I just answered you somewhere else.

I believe this is a Syngonium (an Aroid), I grow one in a vase of water in my bathroom. I'm not sure what kind of light for yours, am GUESSING bright indirect. Yours has nice colors, mine's plain green.

I have one of these - I believe it's a Nephthytis "Holly"......Syngonium podophyllum.

The ID tag that came with it says "low light". That's a joke - it needs bright light for good pink color of the leaves.

I don't understand how they determine a plant needs "low light" or "medium light". I think they ALL should say "bright light"! :)

Hahaha yes it seems we are following each other! Thank you for the name! Now that I have the proper name I believe it's Syngonium 'Strawberry Cream'. Thanks!
