My plant is growing out of control. Can I cut this plant back? If I can cut it back, it won't kill the rest of it, will it?
Congratulations on having your nephthitis grow so well you need to cut it back! Yes, you can trim it back - never more than 1/3 at a time. You can root your cuttings in water; they can stay in water indefinitely, too. They especially like aquariums (but if the leaves are in water they will start to rot). You will soon have little plants to share!
Can I winter my Sagittaria latifoilia in my house in Calgary, Alberta, Canada? Calgary, Alberta, Canada can get winter temps. of -40F! I'm sure my four water plants in my fountain/water garden will not survive this and am hoping to be able to winter them over in my home. Is this possible?
Yes, you can move the plants indoors.

Arrowhead plant leaves are getting brown dry tips. What's wrong?
This could be due to light conditions, watering problems, lack of humidity and even a build up of salts in the soil.
Use distilled water or let the tap water sit out 48 hours before using on your plant.
This link will refresh you on the care requirements.
The leaves are starting to turn brown around the edges. Am I watering it too much or is there another problem?
The soil should dry out a bit between waterings.
Lack of humidity could also cause the brown leaves.
You may also want to water with distilled water, or allow tap water to sit out for 48 hours before using.
my arrowhead has a vine with other blooms on it, but the vine is drying out in one place,like the middle of the vine. I'm afraid of losing it. Help!
This is more than likely caused by one of two things. Either the plant has sustained an injury there, or it could be a fungal infection. I would go ahead and apply just a little wettable sulfur, or something such as rosemary, garlic, or boil chrysanthemum leaves in water. Either method you choose, you will want to wet the soil with it in order to kill off any infection.

Okay so I have some garlic. I am boiling some now, so after it cools i should wet the soil or the infected area?

My plant is out of control . If I would cut it off a few inches above the dirt .will it grow back ? I have done plenty of cutting to root them . It's so big big it looks awful. thank you Lori
Syngonium is a rather unruly plant that is hard to keep looking good. It is naturally a vining or trailing plant and resists being grown in an upright manner. Consider letting the stems drape over the edge of the pot.
Any stem can be cut off above a node and new growth will emerge subsequently at that node. Prune it so that it looks the way you want it to.
