This was given to me by a neighbor. I've done a pretty good job with it but would like to plant it in the yard. Need identified so I can give it proper care.

Arrowhead is grown as a houseplant in northern climates.

I agree, "Arrowhead Vine". It may be one in the Allusion Series but it's definitely Syngonium. Here are a couple for comparison:

Arrowhead Vine (Syngonium podophyllum 'Neon')



Arrowhead Vine (Syngonium podophyllum 'Berry Allusion')



Arrowhead Plant (Syngonium podophyllum 'Pink Allusion')



Arrowhead Vine (Syngonium podophyllum 'Mango Allusion')

Better keep it as house plant.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

I agree with Philip! Syngonium is highly invasive here in Florida, so depending on what part of the state you are located, it would be wise to keep it as a container plant rather than planting it out in the garden.
