Syngonium Podophyllum goes by a variety of names, including nephthytis, Arrowhead plant, and Goose Foot, and it is an excellent houseplant for low light. Popular for more than a hundred years, the arrowhead plant has withstood the test of time because it's both attractive and easy to grow.
Young arrowhead plants are bushy and usually pretty full, making them attractive indoor plant choices for coffee tables, side tables, and other surfaces. As the plants grow and mature, they develop a climbing habit, making them fun to grow up trellises or other structures. (But don't worry: Arrowhead vine is easy to prune and keep bushy if you don't want it growing up.)
Add interest to your decor with different varieties of arrowhead vine; some have beautifully variegated foliage flushed with white, cream, silver, pink, or purple.
