Syngonium auritum is a solid green leaf in its adult form with leaves having 2, 4 or 6 lobes. It is commonly found in Jamaica and Mexico but also appears in other countries. Syngonium auritum is known as “five fingers”.
Syngonium is a genus of flowering plants in the family Araceae, native to tropical rain forests in southern Mexico, the West Indies, Central and South America. They have leaves that change shape according to the plant's stage of growth, and adult leaf forms are often much more lobed than the juvenile forms usually seen on small house plants. Syngonium auritum is a slow-growing vine with three, or more usually five, rich green segments to its leaves, the leaf size usually ranges from 6×3 inches in the young plant up to 15×12 inches in the mature plant. It is called “five fingers” because of the single long narrow central segment which grows to around eight inches in length, with two medium segments at right angles to it and two small ones at the base of the leaf stem.
