Do you have a plain space in your office/home that you want to add color to all year round? If your answer is yes, then, Cream Arrowhead is your perfect choice of house plant to buy. Cream Arrowhead is a tropical evergreen vine with juvenile heart-shaped leaves and mature arrow-shaped leaves. Its creamy green leaves are imbued with rosy tones, and it can grow bushy or leggy depending on the dimensions of the space you want to fill. Sitting on top of a desk or bedside table, this perennial can be pinched for a bushier look or coached to grow up a pole for a more traditional leggier vine appearance.

Best Locations For Growing Cream Arrowhead  

Cream Arrowhead will thrive in any room of your home or office that has low to medium, indirect light and moderate to high humidity. Depending on your individual home’s conditions, however, a kitchen or bathroom might prove to be your best choice.

Cream Arrowhead Sunlight Requirements

Due to their affinity for medium to low, indirect light, north-facing and east-facing windows suit Cream Arrowhead best. If only given the option of a location with bright light, however, this vine can still thrive; you simply must ensure that the light is indirect.

Cream Arrowhead Care

Cream Arrowhead is a tropical evergreen, and so it does well in temperatures between 60°F to 75°F. 

While these humidity-loving vines adore moist air and soil, they prefer their soil to be well drained. Sitting in water disposes them to root rot, so a good indoor potting soil amended with peat moss and perlite will provide Cream Arrowhead with a happy, healthy home.

Cream Arrowhead is a quick climber, meaning it grows rapidly. As a result, repotting is necessary yearly for larger plants, and biennially for smaller plants. Regardless of the year, however, repotting should be done during the spring, and the new pot should be 1 to 2 inches larger than the old pot.

Finally, how you trim your Cream Arrowhead depends on how you wish it to grow. Pinch it to encourage bushier growth, or don’t to encourage taller, leggier growth. Either way, bigger or smaller, this greenish gem will add a lot of color to any blank space you wish to fill.  

Watering Cream Arrowhead

Before watering your Cream Arrowhead, it’s wise to do a moisture check. Every 3 or so days, simply stick a finger one to two inches down below the soil’s surface. If the soil is slightly damp, refrain from watering, but if the soil is dry, then water. 

Feeding Cream Arrowhead

To keep this verdant vine thriving, you can use a time-release or water-soluble fertilizer. The least fussy and time-consuming option of the two is the time-release fertilizer, which you can apply to your Creamy Arrowhead three to four times every year.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
