Q. Syngonium Podophyllum

This was once a recommended indoor plant but as everyone then threw them out, off they went, across the ground, through the gardens, up the trees and into the nearby National Park. Please, how do I kill this disastrous weed.

Can the arrowhead plant be kept outside during spring and summer months?

A.

Yes, but keep in mind that the plant prefers temperatures between 60º F and 75º F and should not be placed in direct sunlight, as this could burn or bleach the plant's leaves. A nice, brightly shaded location should be ok.

Q. new growth arrowhead ivy

I received a pole Arrowhead Ivy plant 2 years ago. At first it really grew nicely. I was afraid it was getting too large for pot, so I repotted. It did fine for awhile, but now new growth is pale, weak, much smaller. What is my problem with this plant? Water? Light? I used a Miracle Grow potting mix that I have used with other plants and have never had a problem. I keep this plant indoors. Please help.

Some plants go into shock when they are repotted. It sounds like yours has. Make sure that the drainage is good in the new pot and provide a little fertilizer. If you give it good care, it should come out of shock and recover.

Q. arrowhead ivy – yellow leaves

I have an arrowhead ivy with variegated pink leaves. Absolutely beautiful. I repotted it shortly after I received it as a gift from the florist. I have new growth coming out but some of the leaves are turning yellow.

After repotting, plants will oftentimes experience a period of shock while adjusting to their new environment. Make sure that you have given it adequate water and place it in similar light conditions as before. With almost all houseplants, it is best to repot while they are dormant in the fall and winter. They are less susceptible to transplant shock if they are repotted when not actively growing.

Q. Arrowhead disease

I have 3 arrowhead plants with northern light, no direct sun. One of them has developed white flecks, like “ashes” on leaves. It wipes off but returns. What is it and how can I treat it?

This is likely Mealybug infestation. Neem Oil can be used to treat the plant. Mealbug can be stubborn and you may need multiple treatments.
I would recommend even dotting the 'spots' with Neem Oil using a Q tip.
