Arrowhead Vine

Syngonium podophyllum "Arrow"

("sin-GO-nee-um pod-oh-FILL-um")


Arrowhead Vine, sometimes called Arrowhead Plant or Syngonium podophyllum "Arrow", is a versatile and easy houseplant that can be kept as a compact pot plant or allowed to climb or trail as the plant matures. 

When young the leaves are arrow-shaped and are borne on erect, sheathed stems. As the plant matures the stems acquire a climbing habit and the leaves develop ear-like lobes at the base. Many varieties are available, ranging in colour from medium or dark green to variegated types with lighter green, yellow or silvery-white zones along the length of the leaf veins.

Syngoniums are peculiar in that the leaves produced by mature specimens are different in shape from those produced by young plants. The latter give the species its common names, which fairly accurately describe the shape of the juvenile leaves.

Country of Origin

Northern half of South America, Central America, Mexico and parts of the Caribbean

Habitat Conditions

Syngonium originates in the warm, humid forests of Tropical and Sub-tropical Americas where it is a climbing plant. As such, it does prefer warm conditions (above 15C) and can sometimes be damaged by sudden chills and cold draughts. It can tolerate quite dry atmospheres, but in warm environments regular misting with tepid water helps prevent leaf discoloration and hardening of the aerial roots

Plant Care


Medium - medium-high. Avoid direct sunlight


The soil should be kept moist, but not wet. Regular misting with tepid water is beneficial to keep the foliage looking fresh and to deter spider mites


The plant can be kept trimmed to a preferred size and shape by cutting the plant back. This will encourage the stems to branch and slow down the development of its natural climbing habit. The plant can be trained around canes, moss poles, or allowed to hang down from a high place.


A dilute fertilizer added to the water every time you water the plant will be beneficial

Pest & Diseases

Generally pest free, but occasionally prone to two-spotted spider mites if the atmosphere is especially dry. When spotted, remove with a damp cloth or paper towel, or wash under a gentle shower (not too hot). Mealybugs may also occur. These can be removed by cleaning the plant with a damp cloth or paper towel
