Although these plants are exceptionally low-light tolerant, they will grow faster and maintain their vibrant coloring and markings if grown in medium to bright indirect light for at least 6 hours each day. Direct sun will scorch their leaves. Arrowhead vines can tolerate and even benefit from early morning direct sunlight when brought outside for the summer, but the afternoon intense sun will cause leaf damage! Syngoniums can also be grown under artificial light sources if your space is light-challenged. LED grow lights work wonders as they are energy efficient and do not produce much heat. Try moving your arrowhead vines closer to the light source during the winter months, and remember to rotate your plants every time you water them or attend to them to encourage a full-bodied plant!
Allow these indoor plants to dry out partially between watering. If left dry for too long, the lower leaves will dry up and turn brown. If this happens, soak the soil and let the plant re-hydrate. The leaves will turn yellow or brown if the soil stays wet for extended periods. The soil becomes waterlogged when a plant is over-watered, preventing oxygen from reaching the roots. This bog-like condition of the soil is a perfect breeding pond for bacteria and disease. (This is meant to scare you away from over-watering!) Watering with less water and more often will prevent the roots from rotting or the soil from drying out for too long. Try this approach if you find the leaves turning yellow or brown suddenly.
Potting soil that is rich in nutrients and organic matter, but still has the ability to drain well is the perfect growing medium for all Syngonium. Most coco coir or peat-based bagged potting soil mixes will be adequate but make sure that they do not contain water-retentive crystals as they can cause the soil to continually stay moist causing root rot. If you are feeling adventurous, try creating your own potting soil!
Arrowhead Vines will grow in most household temperatures ranging from 60-80 degrees Fahrenheit. They do not like the temps to drop below 50℉. 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. There are a few ways you can increase the humidity around your arrowhead vines, so find the way that best suits you and your aesthetic.
Arrowhead vines should be fertilized during the growing season with ½ – ¼ strength complete liquid fertilizer twice a month. Or use a slow release fertilizer or top dress with worm castings or compost in early spring. These are fast-growing plants and they benefit from fertilization as this will help them develop large leaves and a healthy root system.
