Plant Care Instructions*


Young arrowhead plants are bushy and usually pretty full, making them attractive indoor plant choices for coffee tables, side tables, and other surfaces. As the plants grow and mature, they develop a climbing habit, making them fun to grow up trellises or other structures.

Plant Care*:

Temperatures of at least 60-85 ºF (15-29 ºC) need to be maintained year-round. This species may cope with 50 ºF (10 ºC). Anything lower can kill off your plant.

Provide bright light without direct sunlight to prevent the leaves from getting scorched. Set back a few feet from a window that receives sun would be a nice spot. If you notice more growth on one side then turn the pot because that side is likely to be receiving more light (this will even growth out).

When the top soil becomes slightly dry to the to the touch it’s time to water thoroughly. Reduce watering during winter to prevent plant problems.

Any decent peat-based soil potting mix will suffice.

During Spring - Summer provide the plant with a diluted liquid feed once every two weeks. After Summer, stop feeding because the plant will no longer produce new growth to nourish.

Repot once every two years. After it has reached the growth you want - keep the same size pot and just make a new soil change every two years.

In its natural habitat the Arrowhead plant receives plenty of humidity, however, in temperate regions most homes are suitable. Try to avoid dry air from heating systems (place water in containers to improve within the room or let air in through the windows - not too cold though). Misting the leaves is a good approach to improving humidity.

* Standard care recommendations - you may need to adjust based on your home or office environment.
