Arrowhead Vine Care

Arrowhead vine (Syngonium podophyllum) are quick growing and low maintenance plants with striking foliage that comes in various colors like white, green, and pink. Along with color they have different patterns that are sure to call attention. These vining plants are native to tropical rainforests in southern Mexico, West Indies, and South America.

The nickname "arrowhead" comes from the plant's spade-like shaped leaves. As a young plant they appear bushy and compact with slightly rounded leaves. As arrowhead mature, they not only begin to vine, but their leaves take on a more pointy arrowhead shape. As they further mature, the leaf shape turns into a palmate (hand shape) giving it the name "five fingers." It’s a transformation a lot of us don’t expect!
