  1. Appearance: Syngonium 'Moonshine' boasts pale, silvery-green leaves with a more muted green veining. As the plant matures, the leaf shapes can change, transitioning from an arrowhead shape to a more complex lobed or divided structure.

  2. Size: Like most Syngoniums, 'Moonshine' is a climbing or vining plant that can be trained up supports or allowed to trail in a hanging basket. With proper care, it can grow quite extensively, but its size remains manageable for most indoor settings.

  3. Light Requirements: It prefers bright, indirect light. Too much direct sunlight can cause leaf burn or fade the unique coloration. In lower light conditions, its growth may slow, and the vibrant coloration may become less pronounced.

  4. Watering: 'Moonshine' likes its soil to be kept consistently moist but not waterlogged. Overwatering or allowing the plant to sit in water can lead to root rot.

  5. Soil: A well-draining potting mix is ideal. Many indoor plant potting mixes will work. Ensure the pot has adequate drainage.

  6. Temperature and Humidity: Syngoniums are tropical plants, so they appreciate warmth and humidity. A temperature range between 60°F to 75°F (15°C to 24°C) is ideal. If your home is dry, consider placing the plant on a humidity tray, grouping it with other plants, or misting it regularly.

  7. Toxicity: All parts of the Syngonium plant are toxic when ingested due to the presence of calcium oxalate crystals. It's advisable to keep them out of reach from pets and children.

  8. Propagation: Syngoniums, including the 'Moonshine' variety, can be propagated through stem cuttings or by division.

  9. Pest Issues: Like many houseplants, they can be susceptible to pests such as aphids, spider mites, and mealybugs. Regularly inspect the plant and tackle any infestations early.

  10. Maintenance: Syngonium 'Moonshine' is relatively low-maintenance. You can prune it to maintain a desired shape or to encourage bushier growth. If leaves become dusty, you can gently wipe them with a damp cloth.
