*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

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. 

 

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.
