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.

Additional Information

Pets & Children

Dracaenas are harmless to people, but toxic to many animals. Cats might like to scratch at the stems, which will damage the plant as well as possibly harming your pet if then licks its paws

Height

30-40cm. In the wild, Dracaena marginata can grow up to 2m in height. Houseplants are often smaller (20cm up to 1.5m)

Nursery Pot Size

12cm

Country of Origin

Madagascar

Habitat Conditions

Dracaena marginata comes from Madagascar, a warm and often humid place. The plant is, however, quite adaptable and can cope with most indoor conditions, although it prefers dappled shade to direct sunlight.

Plant Care

Light

Low-medium - medium-high

Watering

The soil should be kept moist, but not wet. It will tolerate occasional drying out, but not for prolonged periods, so make sure it is watered before you go on holiday. If the soil gets dry for a prolonged period, the leaves will start to discolour and develop brown tips and spots. Wet soil will damage the roots and cause wilting and yellowing of the foliage.

Pruning

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

Feeding

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
