Arrowhead Vine 'Red Arrow' Overview
Syngonium erythrophyllum 'Red Arrow' is an evergreen climber from the aroid family, Araceae. It's commonly grown as a houseplant for its attractive foliage. Keep it moist in the growing period but allow to dry out a little in between watering during the winter. Keep in medium to bright light, out of direct sunlight. It produces vibrant light green, arrow-shaped young leaves with vibrant purple undersides. The leaves develop into a completely different structure with age. Mature leaves are divided into 3 lobes or 5–9 distinct leaflets and these do not closely resemble the young arrow-shaped leaves. Arrowhead Vine 'Red Arrow' is one ao the many cultivars have been developed from the species. They produce arum-like flowers, but rarely in cultivation. Being tropical rainforest plants, they are tender and won't cope with freezing temperatures. They are therefore most suitable as conservatory and glasshouse specimens in temperate climates. All parts are toxic if ingested.
