I started in August of 2020 a few cuttings and it now trails to the floor ( wife pushed it out of sight against my idea!) What you see in the aquarium is mostly the roots and stems and some driftwood. I do constantly prune roots that wander too far. Others like in front make a drapery of rootlets,a nice look I think. I operate on a tight budget,no special treatments..iron,potassium,no Co2. The largest leaf on the Syngonium is the size of a hand. It really took off when I started with the iron gluconate. It was doing well before..but the iron takes it to another level.
Last photo is of the sunlight that is my "budget ada solar" !

Thanks all.
No photo gadget girl. Syngonium does come in colors..but indoors tends to revert to green. Outdoors here in cali the silver stays. Never tried the pink.

Mine started from plant cuttings put in cutouts made on the 240 gallon for hang on filters of the olden days. Like Aquakings-lol. From that it just found the main left opening and its been trimmed many times since. But yes,just buy a plant,wash off all the potting soil..and plunk in water. They go into no shock..take to hydroponics like a duck to water. I actually saw a vid of them growing naturalized in the shallows of a stream in the Philippines.
