The Arrowhead plant I had received in a dish garden. After I allowed the garden to be outside here in Palm Coast Florida, I thought "I have a bright idea" and planted the Arrowhead along with an existing potted plant outdoors. Well, not only did the Arrowhead survive, it thrived so well that it took over the pot, squeezing out the first plant, as it grew all over the garden area, I finally cut out the last bush and threw it in the trash so that the Hydrangea could survive. Here is to the Arrowhead! Keep it inside where it belongs, or if you have a wonderful outdoor site that is very large, they will grow abundantly in that location. Caveat, Just keep it trimmed back, thanks for listening

The Arrowhead plant is a perennial, woody vine capable of climbing to heights of 12 feet or more. The leaves change shape with the stages of growth, adult leaves being much more lobed than the juvenile form. The Arrowhead vine makes a nice house plant, preferring warmth and humidity, low light to bright shade but no direct sun. Stem cuttings are easily rooted for additional plants.
Toxicity: This plant contains calcium oxalates which cause irritation to the lips, tongue and throat and severe mouth pain if eaten. It's best to keep this one away from small children and pets who might nibble your plants!

Lost all of its leaves, trimmed back the large stems, added some coco coir and gave it some fertilizer. Hanging outside lanai. Fingers crossed that it will bounce back.
