This lovely plant belongs to the aroid species and is often used as a houseplant. An Arrowhead Plant is a vine that can be grown directly in the ground in a landscape setting, as well as indoors in a container. This vine prefers to be grown in temperatures that range between 60 and 75°; however, it can withstand higher temperatures if the soil is kept somewhat moist. This plant does best when grown in containers when it is located in an area that experiences temperatures below 60° F. It is mostly used as a household plant due to its sensitivity to cold weather and direct sunlight. An ideal way to grow this plant indoors is to offer it bright filtered sunlight for a portion of the day unless it is one of the variegated varieties. When grown inside, it can be planted in potting soil and trained to grow on a trellis or in a hanging basket. It is best to water this tropical plant until the soil is moist, then let the soil dry out again before watering it again. The Arrowhead Plant makes a delightful addition to a combination planting but is also beautiful when it is grown alone. This particular plant is often given as an office gift or as a housewarming present. Due to a somewhat fast growth rate, this plant can quickly expand into a remarkable specimen. A lot of people love this plant because it accentuates their interior design. Many people like how this plant looks when it is grown in a hanging basket, especially if it is hung in a corner. Since the vines can reach floor level, it makes the perfect addition to angles that would otherwise be bare. Whether the Arrowhead Plant is grown indoors, or outside, it adds a splash of the tropics that can liven up any space.
