Identify these similar plants-Arrowhead Plants

I know these three are varieties of the same plant, but haven’t been able to ID what that is yet, and I want to care for them properly. Are you able to recognize?

Hi Amy,


How to identify and care for an arrowhead plant

These three plants are all types of Arrowhead plants (Syngonium podophyllum). The different varieties: the first is a Pink Illusion, the other two are just varieties of Syngonium podophyllum.

Arrowhead plants, also called  Syngonium and Nepthytis make excellent indoor plants. Originally grown as a solid green plant and a close relative of philodendrons, Arrowhead plants now have leaves that are almost white, green & white, and various shades of pink or burgundy. Keep the long runners and growth tips pruned and you can use them on tables or stand them on the floor. When left untrimmed, Arrowhead plants make beautiful hanging plants.

These plants are considered poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children. Read more about common houseplants that are poisonous in
