White Arrowhead Butterfly Care
Syngonium podophyllum, also known as the white arrowhead plant, is a species of aroid that is native to the tropical rainforests of Mexico, Central America, and the West Indies. The white arrowhead plant gets its name from the shape of its leaves, which are broad at the base and taper to a point. The leaves are dark green in color and have white veins running through them. The white arrowhead plant is a fast-growing climber that can reach up to 20 feet in length. It is often used as an ornamental plant in homes and gardens.
Syngonium podophyllum prefers humid conditions and does not do well in dry air. It should be grown in partial shade or indirect sunlight. The white arrowhead plant can be propagated by stem cuttings or by division of the rootball. It is not difficult to care for, but it does require regular watering and fertilizing. Pest problems are rare, but mealybugs can sometimes be an issue. Scale can also be a problem if the air is too dry. Syngonium podophyllum is not known to be poisonous to humans or animals, but it can cause stomach upset if ingested in large quantities.
