Care Notes: Does great in high moisture environments. In terrariums, it may need to be rehomed as a houseplant after a year of growth due to its large mature size

*Syngonium plants are mildly toxic to both humans and pets as all parts of the plant contain calcium oxalate crystals. We deem this plant safe for use with the above animals, but the more risk-averse may wish to avoid it

For more information please visits the ASPCA list of Toxic and Non-Toxic Plants

Shipping Notes: 

As a good practice, Josh's Frogs recommends washing all plants thoroughly removing as much soil as possible with dechlorinated water before placing them in their final home. Live plants may vary in color, size, and appearance.

Nice variety

Very pleased with how healthy they arrived a little sad with how small they are but they are very true to the picture in sizing but overall they look great in my tank and once they grow they will be perfect for my day gecko
