Arrowhead vines are very forgiving, and are able to tolerate low-light and low-water conditions for brief periods of time. To maintain the rich blush coloration, place this plant in bright indirect sunlight. The Merry Arrowhead Plant is an excellent choice for beginners as it’s easy to care for and is fast growing. Note that arrowhead plants are poisonous when ingested, so keep this plant up away from pets and small children.
