About Arrowhead Vine
Syngonium podophyllum is a popular, easy-to-care-for houseplant with beautiful arrowhead shaped leaves. You’ll often see these plants grown in their juvenile stage, but given something to climb on and abundant sunlight you may see them mature into their adult stage! The leaf shape changes as they mature and may even appear to split into three individual leaves. In the wild they can climb up to 65 feet tall. Be sure to handle them with care, as their sap contains oxalic acid which can be very irritating to the skin and eyes. 👀

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Arrowhead Vine after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
This plant is my favorite plant. It has big leaves it grows fast and last long. It is pet friendly at lest my pets do not bother it. It is the easiest plant to propagate. The only thing is if it doesn’t get the proper amount of sun and water, it browns easily.
This guy. I fell in love with him at the store and have loved him ever since. He definitely reaches for the light. I have a couple different varieties and they are both in bright indirect light, yet they both seem to be reaching for where the direct sun hits in the room. Super easy to take care of, and they grow really quickly!
