වැල් කොහිල [Wel kohila]/Fivefingers (Syngonium angustatum)

Native plant of Central America. Introduced as an ornamental and now naturalized from lowlands to about 1000 m elevations. Also often grown as a pot plant due to its arrow shaped variegated juvenile foliage leaves with silvery along main veins. Adults leaves of climbing stem are much more lobed (3-9 leaflets) and to keep juvenile leaves it is advised to cut-off all the climbing stems that developed.
