About Variegated 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. 👀

What other plant parents say
I neglected this plant VERY hard when I first got it 2 years ago. It was outside in perfect conditions but only got watered when I remembered. It was survival of the fittest and it has come out the other side! After a recent repot, moved inside and well looked after, it is thriving better than ever and is already spitting out leaves after 2 weeks.
Forever love this plant. Never give up on it
