Give your plant a turn every few days to expose all sides to light for even growth from all sides.
Water when the top 50%-75% of the soil is dry. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer.
To give your plant the absolute best, rainwater and bottled spring water are your best options. Any water containing sugar or salt will hurt your plant!
Your Arrowhead Plant will do well in higher humidity environments especially during the winter. Mist the plant daily using filtered-water, or place its container on a tray filled with pebbles and water to increase the humidity.
Temperatures between (18-26°C) during the day and above (26°C) at night.
Feed once a month during the spring, summer, and fall with a liquid fertilizer for indoor plants.
Toxic to humans, dogs, and cats if ingested. It can cause mild stomach and mouth.
If you want to keep your plant compact and bushy, pinch the new growth on a regular basis. Wear gloves when pinching as the plant’s sap can cause skin irritation.
