Arrowhead plant is native to tropical Central and South America and is also known as Nephthytis. Other common names are Syngonium plant, Elephant Ear plant, Butterfly plant and Goosefoot plant. Arrowhead plant are quite easy household growing plants. These plants have large white leaves with green edges. An unusual feature of Arrowhead plant is the changing shape of its leaves, which are oval, becoming lobed as they mature. This pretty climber can be found growing in trees using its aerial roots to cling on to whatever it is climbing. Indoors, it will do well if it is trained up a moss pole from which it will also gather moisture of a vigorous grower it needs repotting often. As in its native habitat it needs a good humidity level so mist frequently by placing the pot over damp gravel or pebbles. There it has beautiful white flower as but these do not appear in the pot plant. As a house plants it will grow up to 4-5ft. And should last for several years.
