Bright, indirect sunlight is recommended for the Merry Arrowhead Plant. Direct sunlight will scorch the plant’s thin leaves, causing them to brown.
Merry Arrowhead Plant Care
Rich, well-draining potting soil with added perlite is perfect for growing this plant. 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.
Watering Merry Arrowhead Plant
Water this plant when the top two inches of soil are dry, or about every 2 weeks.
Feeding Merry Arrowhead Plant
Arrowhead vines should be fertilized only once per month. During the growing season, fertilize with an all-purpose fertilizer diluted to one-quarter of the manufacturer’s recommended dosage.
