Nephthytis / M
Get it Planted: Without pot
Nephthytis, or "Arrowhead" plant, is a lesser-known and underrated easy-care star. It has pointy arrow shaped leaves and is fast-growing. Though it starts out with a bushier silhouette, expect leggier, vine-like growth as this plant matures.
Grows best in medium to bright indirect light and is tolerant of low light - Avoid direct sun
Water when the top 1-2 inches of soil is dry - Water before fully drying out
Air Purifying - Absorbs pollutants
Not Pet Friendly - Avoid ingesting
Sits 12-16" tall In a 6" grow pot
Keep soil evenly moist to slightly dry. Water thoroughly then allow to dry out almost completely. Prune back to keep bushy and full, or let it branch out or vine.
Nephthytis is a genus of eight species of flowering plants in the family Araceae, native to tropical western Africa, with one species in Borneo. They are herbaceous plants growing from a rhizome.
