How To Grow and Care For Syngonium
This low-maintenance houseplant is interesting and versatile. It is available in a range of colors, and the attractive foliage changes in shape as the individual leaves change from juvenile to mature.
The hardy evergreen arrowhead vine is an enthusiastic climber but can be pruned to create a compact tabletop plant. When left unpruned, its vines can grow to be about six feet long and are lovely when trained to climb or allowed to cascade over the sides of a hanging basket or pot.
Although these plants are extremely 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.
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 rehydrate.
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.
Arrowhead vines should be fertilized during the growing season with ½ strength complete liquid fert once a month. Or use a slow release fertilizer or top dress with worm castings or compost in early spring.
Try letting these indoor vines grow long and display them as a hanging plant as it matures.
If you like a compact full plant, then prune the foliage back to maintain its form.
Propagate the cuttings in water as these indoor vines grow roots very quickly
