Arrowhead vine (Syngonium)

By Lee Anne Stark (threegardeners) on March 13, 2010

Eye-catching and easy!

This is another plant with low light requirements. This makes it a suitable plant for brightening up mid-room areas since it does not have to be kept in a window. Also a very nice plant for the terrarium.

Syngoniums require consistently moist soil, not sopping wet, but never thoroughly drying out. If it does dry out though, it bounces back having only suffered a few brown leaves. Just don't let drying out happen on a regular basis!

Easily propagated by cuttings, just stick them in a glass of water or into a pot filled with damp soil and they will root quickly and easily.

In their natural habitat Syngoniums are considered vines or climbers thus making thm suitable for a hanging basket.

One note of caution. All parts of this plant are poisonous if ingested, although I have to say that I have 7 cats and have never had a problem.
