GooseFoot Plant

Its amazing to find so many hybrids and cultivars of this kind.
Basically its known as Syngonium podophyllum 
(yeah..something that you pronouns with chewing gum with your mouth)

This is one of the plants you can easily tuck between nook & corners of your garden. And yes - some varieties are invasive except the coloured hybrids - they are much slow grower and sometimes tend to disappear if they are forgotten.

Somehow, I find them more of an aquatic type,
they tend to thrive where there is a puddle of water.

They do great as indoor plant too - they don't do well in direct sun,
rather prefer bright shaded area.

Indeed, they have interesting leaf structure, 
If you are all foliage type of guy...
Then I suggest go for these types - they are quite resilient.

One word of caution:
If you purchase this one planted in a cocopeat, I strongly recommend that you change the soil medium with the existing medium - 50% with sand (or any fast draining medium)

If any case the root structure is compromised,
The rotting process will start to occur and it would be too late to save the plant.
Therefore, its good to remain caution with this thought - then waiting the inevitable to happen.
