With its almost-translucent foliage of delicate pale pink and green hues, the Arrowhead Plant’s pretty leaves are shaped like…well, arrowheads obviously. She is super versatile and can climb with the right support.
3.5 inch standard plastic nursery pot.
Although these plants are low-light tolerant, they will grow faster and maintain their vibrant coloring and markings if grown in medium to bright indirect light. Direct sun will scorch their leaves.
She loves moist soil but not too wet. Less frequent watering is needed in the winter when the air is a little damper and small but frequent doses of a balanced fertilizer can help to keep the plant in tip-top health. Essentially, if you notice the plant or the surrounding soil looking a little crispy, make sure you give the plant a drink.
Plant Specific Care
Arrowhead Vines will grow in most household temperatures. Keep them away from drafts and doorways during the winter months.
Average household humidity 40-50% is adequate for these indoor plants, but most houseplants benefit from humidity over 60% if you can provide it.
Arrowhead vines should be fertilized during the growing season with ½ strength complete liquid fertilizer once a month. Or use a slow-release fertilizer or top-dress with worm castings or compost in early spring.
