How to care for Arrowhead Vine

Difficulty

Arrowhead Vine is a great choice for beginner plant parents because it is easy to care for!

Water

Arrowhead Vine should be watered regularly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings.

Soil

Arrowhead Vine loves a well-draining soil. Perlite and vermiculite help with drainage, while coco coir adds organic matter, so a good potting soil mix will have all three. You can improve store-bought soil by adding some perlite to it.

Sunlight

Arrowhead Vine can survive in low light conditions, making them ideal for rooms that are far from windows or other light sources. However, for best results, place the plant less than 6 feet from a south-facing window to ensure it receives enough light.

Toxicity

Arrowhead Vine is poisonous if ingested. We suggest keeping this plant out of reach if you have children, cats, or dogs in the home.
