Just recently my plant which is three years old has leaves and steams turning yellow then drying up.I do water it every 2-3 weeks. Thank You
How often do you fertilize? You will want to do this at least once per year. It could also be a fungal infection. You can correct this will wettable sulfur and dolomitic lime. Can you include a picture? This will help me to see what is going on.
My arrow head plant sits on my SW window sill during the day then I move it to a plant stand. My question is : Why do my new leaves open with brown,dead like spots on them ? Not all the new ones , I'll get two with spots then two good ones then two with spots. Help please. Thank you in advance
Can you include a photo? This sounds like a fungal infection, but I want to be sure. You can use a peroxide when you water. Just replace 1/4 of the water with peroxide. This can stop a fungal infection, and add much needed oxygen into the soil.
I recommend watering only when the soil is almost completely dry on top to avoid any infections in the soil. Overwatering is the most common cause.https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/arrowhead-plant/arrowhead-plant-care-arrowhead-plant-or-syngonium-podophyllum.htm
This arrowhead has gotten so big i need to separate it but its roots are tangled tight together and i need to know how to separate it so i wont kill it....its going into 3 plants
Ok, I know this is going to sound completely brutal, but this is the way to propagate them quickly, and at the same time cutting off what is needed.
Moisten the soil. Take it out of the pot, and cut away the bottom two inches of roots.This can be done with a clean knife, scissors, or shears. This will let the plants free with some shaking.
Fill your containers with slightly moist soil until when you set the room mass, it is level with the crown, and about an inch below the pot top. Give it just a little water, making sure to get rid of the excess. This will "set" the roots. Top off with soil if needed.

It puts out a lot of leaves, but they don't unfurl
This could be due to improper light, over watering, temperature; too hot or too cold, or a pest issue.
If you see Aphids, treat the plant with Neem Oil.
I had two pink arrowheads that I repotted into a new pot together with a mixed media soil. Roots were healthy. Had it in a low light area for a few weeks next to my finicky fittonia. Watered when dry. One plant got all crunchy and died a few days ago. The other plant initally seemed ok but I noticed yesterday that it had a new leaf unrolling and a few of its larger leaves are starting to get what looks like burnt crunchy spots on them. I moved it closer to the window yesterday, not in direct sun though. Just wondering if anyone can offer any insight on the leaves. This plant is really special to me and I dont want to lose it.
This is usually a sign of contaminated soil, or soil that has too much nutrients in it, but can also be a sign that there is not enough nutrients in the soil as well, unfortunately. What kind of soil did you use, and what is the pH of the soil?
You can try replacing 1/4 of your water with peroxide the next time that you water. This can cure infections in the soil, but I will need to know more information on the soil to know if there are any other factors.

idence of pests. Also, it is getting requirements but something is amiss. What to do?
Most likely your plant is not receiving enough sunlight.

What can I do for my overgrown arrow head plant. This plant is very precious to me and it is over 21 years old.
Keep the long runners and growth tips pruned and you can use them on tables or stand them on the floor. When left untrimmed, indoor Arrowhead plants make beautiful hanging plants.
You can also take cuttings and start new plants.
