Below is a general care guide for arrowhead vine plants which can slightly differ depending on variety.
Light & Temperature
The Arrowhead Vine does well in low to medium, indirect light but thrives in bright, indirect light. If your home environment only allows low to medium light, you will do better with one of the deeper green cultivars.
These species do better in shaded conditions. As a semi-tropical vine, arrowheads prefer warm conditions.
Watering, Humidity & Misting
Water your Arrowhead Vine regularly, allowing for its soil to partially dry out between waterings.
While the plant can tolerate average humidity, it will grow best with added moisture in the air. Regular misting will help or you can also setup a pebble tray or a humidifier.
Soil and Repotting
Arrowhead Vine should be planted in well-draining potting mix.
Repot your plant once it outgrows its pot. Syngoniums kept indoors do not grow as fast as those grown outdoors so repotting is usually only necessary once a year.
Cut a section of stem that has aerial nodes and place them in clear water to grow. Once they develop roots, you can pot it in clean planter using fresh soil.
Use a balanced fertiliser formulated for houseplants. Follow the directions on the label of our Down to Earth. organic plant food.
Every part of the Arrowhead Vines are toxic if ingested and should be kept out of the reach of children and pets.
Under the right care and conditions, your plant will grow happy and healthy. But here are some issues you may encounter while caring for an Arrowhead Vine:
Mealybugs, spider mites, aphids and scale - When spotted, treat your plant immediately with neem oil or other natural solution.
Droopy leaves - This is due to lack of water and overly dry soil. Check the soil with your finger and if the top inch feels dry, give the plant a good watering.
Yellowing leaves - This can be caused by overwatering. If the soil is soggy feeling, it’s staying too wet and should be allowed to partially dry out before watering again.
Brown leaf tips - The air where your Arrowhead Vine is might be too dry. Transfer it to a higher humidity area or do a frequent misting to boost humidity.
