Arrowhead Plant, Syngonium or Nyphtytis

Bright diffused light is best however variegated colorways can handle a bit more direct sun, while deeper green varieties prefer none. Arrowhead vines are prone to root rot, so make sure the potting soil is well-draining and the pot has drainage holes. Also, consider planting in a terracotta or clay vessel to wick away extra moisture from the soil. Allow this plant to dry out partially between waterings but never completely. Consider keeping it somewhere with naturally higher humidity (like a kitchen or bathroom), or use a method of increasing humidity such as misting with a spray bottle, using a pebble tray or humidifier. Unfortunately for animal lovers, all parts of the arrowhead vine are toxic to most pets, including dogs and cats—though only mildly so. If you choose to bring the vine into your home, keep it somewhere where curious animals can’t get to it. If you notice your animal exhibiting any of the below symptoms, contact an emergency vet service immediately.
