I think this might be 'White Butterfly,' but I'm not sure and would like your input.





It has the faintest dark green edging like 'White Butterfly,' but I don't see any leaves that resemble those of the plant in the database; the leaves on mine are all a light creamish green color with a little bit of darker green edging. I haven't had it very long so I don't think the color is environmental; it looked this way when I purchased it a few weeks ago.

Thank You!

I am not sure myself, the only one I thought existed was 'White Butterfly,' but this one doesn't quite fit the bill. ::scratches head:: Shrug!

It doesn't look like Nephthytis (Syngonium podophyllum 'White Butterfly') to me but rather more like one of the Allusion Series ... I think I see a little hint of a pinkish color to the leaves, or could that be due to the background lighting?

Might be 'Exotic Illusion' as seen down this page: http://www.costafarms.com/plants/arrowhead-plant

Thank you for the input. I do believe the pinkish color is due to the background lighting (I wish I had a better location to use for pictures), sadly, so I don't think it's 'Exotic Illusion.'

Maybe I should hold onto it a bit longer and see what it does over time? I didn't think these were known for changing colors, but I do know some plants can look different with different environmental factors.
