Houseplant Cultural information: The "Arrowhead" plant is usually found in smaller container sizes as an upright plant, hanging basket or grown on a pole. As the plant ages it will begin to vine. Keep them in a bright area out of hot direct sunshine. Check for water weekly and feed bi-monthly with Peter's Plant Food. Propagate by dividing the plant or rooting the cuttings in a container of water.

"Arrowhead" plants are available as 3" and 4" starter plants as well as 6" and 8" upright plants with or without a totem pole, along with 6", 8" and 10" hanging baskets.
