The Q&A Archives: syngonium

Question: Can I put a stem and leave and put it into soil for it to grow roots?

Answer: Syngonium (also called Nephthytis) is the white-veined arrowhead vine. You can propagate this plant by taking cuttings, dipping them in rooting hormone, and putting the cut side into moistened potting soil. You can also root cuttings in water (no rooting hormone required). After they have produced a fair amount of roots, you can plant them in moistened potting soil.

Best wishes with your cuttings!
