Syngonium Nephthytis (Arrowhead Plant)
Botanical Name: Syngonium podophyllum
***Available for local pickup only!!***
This low-maintenance relative of the Philodendron derives its common name from its leaves, which become more and more arrowhead-shaped as it grows. An attractive and adaptable plant, as it ages it will develop climbing stems that can be supported with a moss stick or allowed to trail. These can also be pruned to keep the compact, bushy shape of a younger specimen.
Light: Bright light, but no direct sun. Syngonium podophyllum can tolerate low light, but the leaves may lose their variegation. Turn pot in front of window regularly for even growth.
Water: Keep the potting mix moist in summer, allowing the surface to dry out before watering again. Water less often in winter, letting the top half of the potting mix dry out.
