You probably have heard of syngonium without realizing it is a very trendy houseplant. This semi-tropical plant (hailing from Brazil, Bolivia, Ecuador, and Mexico) is commonly known as the arrowhead or butterfly plant. This low-maintenance arrowhead plant is an interesting and versatile houseplant. It is available in a range of colors, and the attractive foliage changes in shape as the individual leaves change from juvenile to mature. It's one of the most popular groups of houseplants right now, together with variegated large-leafed plants, as the monsteras, philodendrons, alocasias, and some anthuriums.

Syngonium Pink Perfection

In its natural habitat, there are over thirty species of syngonium. The one we see most often in cultivation is the podophyllum type, which comes in an impressive number of varieties. The vibrant colors and patterned foliage make the plant have a stunning appearance. The plant usually thrives under indoor settings to add an aesthetic look. One of the most popular varieties of syngonium is the variety Pink Perfection.

The Best Pink Indoor Plant?

In their natural habitat, the pink syngonium plant is a vigorous climber that starts as under-story forest plants in low lighting and grows up into the tropical forest's leaves and branches to get more sun and fresh air. As with most living things, you will get the best results from these plants when you take steps to replicate their natural circumstances. Provide a tropical forest environment by keeping your arrowhead plant in a warm, humid setting with the kind of bright, indirect sunlight you would find in a jungle. If you want to go high, try providing your plant with a branch or moss-covered pole to climb.

Easy to Take Care For

But, don't worry, the Pink Syngonium is easy to care for. You won't have to climb after it. The plant likes humidity, yet does not need to be watered constantly. Syngonium can be placed about anywhere in the house, office, or your shop. Close to a window with filtered sunlight is no problemo.

Syngonium Strawberry Pink

Don't confuse the syngonium Pink Perfection with the syngonium Strawberry Pink. Some sellers offer the Strawberry Pink with a label of the Pink Perfection. @relaxapip shows the two in the picture below to show the difference:
"Mostly it's not a scam and maybe just because of ignorance. Or just giving it a name. I hope it helps those of you who are looking for the variant syngonium Pink perfection."

Syngonium Neon Robusta

Another pink syngonium is called the Neon Robusta, it's slightly less bright, a bit more pale pink, and the leaves are more rounded. But as you can see in the pictures below, they can look very similar. This also depends on how much light they get and other conditions. The first is a pretty syngonium Neon Robusta. The second is a Pink Perfection. When searching the internet, one can stumble upon some great specimens:
