Arrowhead Plant is a member of the Araceae family -- along with the philodendron -- and is just as easy to care for. Give it bright light and lightly moist soil, and you'll find that it's otherwise low-maintenance.

Commercial growers have made big improvements to this beautiful foliage plant in recent years, giving it a better resistance to disease. And that's not all. Today's plants offer more leaf colors with heavy variegation and a compact growth habit, adding to its appeal.

As a young plant, its leaves start out heart-shaped, then gradually become arrowhead shaped as it matures. Its dark-green leaves have silvery white or cream variegation, making this a decorative and popular house plant. Display arrowhead plant alongside a group of other foliage plants or add it to a dish garden. Small plants mix well with compact dieffenbachias and heartleaf philodendrons because they require similar care.

Young plants form clusters of upright stems, with climbing stems developing later. A moss stick works well to support older stems, giving aerial roots something to hold onto.
