What are the appearance characteristics of Cingonium flower?

What is the difference between this plant and Philodendron plant?
Cingonium flower is a fast-growing plant that is very similar to Philodendron.

The distinction between the two plants is that in the syngonium plant, the young leaves are lanceolate with yellow veins.

The leaf shape of this plant changes near the junction with the petiole and is divided into two parts that at the end resemble the corners of a rabbit; For this reason, it is also called rabbit leaf (rabbit leaf can be seen in green, blue, miniature, pink, and red species).

The stems of this plant are very soft and due to its ascending growth, it should have a support so that it does not break.

If the stem of the syngonium comes in contact with a wet place, improper roots will form in it.

Also, due to the presence of improper aerial roots, the syngonium plant needs a mossy guard to be able to absorb water and nutrients through it.

This plant has about 36 species. The most beautiful species of this plant are:

1) S.auritum (toe plant)

The toe plant has a total of 5 small and large stems.

2) vellozianum
This plant is a climbing plant with bronze stems and green leaves.

Syngonium podophyllum (Pixie)
Pixie is the exact opposite of royal white; That is, its leaves are green with white streaks. These veins start from the center and reach to the edges of the leaf.

Pixie syngonium is the most popular type of syngonium; Because it is smaller than the rest and does not grow too large (in fact, it does not move and will not change much in size).

Syngonium podophyllum (white butterfly)

In this type, the leaves are almost white, but sometimes you can find very pale green or yellow leaves.

Syngonium podophyllum (emerald)
The leaves of this plant are very large and its stems are short and there are streaks of white (or very light green) on its leaves. One way to distinguish this plant from other types of syngonium is the sharp tip of its leaves.

This type of Syngonium podophyllum is very similar to the main plant of Syngonium in nature.

Syngonium podophyllum (golden green)
