The arrowhead vine makes a pretty trailing or climbing vine that tends to aggressive growth under the right conditions. Sometimes mislabeled as Nephthytis, the arrowhead vine is a tropical climber in the Arum (or aroid) family. Many varieties have variegated leaves to one degree or another, and like many aroids, the plant's leaf structure changes as it matures, going from a simple arrow shape to a deeply lobed or divided mature leaf.

1. Place the nephthytis near a window where it will receive indirect but bright sunlight.
2. Fill the drainage tray with pea gravel and place it underneath the container to catch the excess water runoff when watering to provide humidity around the plant.
3. Water thoroughly when the soil is slightly damp 1 inch below the surface.
4. Feed the nephthytis with fertilizer diluted in half every two months.
5. Pinch back stems to the first green leaf when leaves turn brown and die. Some stems will grow without leaves.
