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.
