The Nephthytis Butterfly (Syngonium podophyllum) is a slow-growing indoor vine that works best in pots or hanging baskets. Valued more for its attractive foliage than its blooms, the plant flaunts medium green, arrowhead-shaped leaves with a distinctive mottled feature. Place a few pieces of this easy-to-grow, hardy houseplant to add a touch of greenery to any bare space in your home or office. It is also known as the Butterfly Plant, Arrowhead Plant, and Goosefoot Plant.
