Is this an Arrowhead plant or something similar? It dies off every fall/winter and sprouts again every early Spring.

This article is about the Arrowhead plant.
I have an arrowhead plant that is dying. I don't know what to do. It is down to one vine, one leaf. Root is almost non existent. Is there anything I can do to save it?
It would be hard to say without seeing it. Please include a photo, and I will be more than glad to help you find out what is wrong with it.
In the meantime, this article will help you with the care of these plants: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/arrowhead-plant/arrowhead-plant-care-arrowhead-plant-or-syngonium-podophyllum.htm
I got it in a garden dish from my brothers funeral and it was small when I repotted it about 8" now it is 2 feet of course I did not know that it was a climber so it grew a little crazy. I am wanting to buy a trellis for it now and not sure how big I should get. I live in Florida zone 11 and it stays out on my patio. Thank You Sheila
They can grow quite big; they can easily be maintained to a smaller size by pinching back new growth to keep it more compact.
You can use a trellis or poll in the container for this plant to climb on.
doing wrong? I have such bad luck with these plants, although I have very green thumbs and fingers! They do well in water for years but then, if I ever pot them with soil they always die. The leaves get yellow tips, then turn completely yellow and eventually fall off. I have my current one in a north facing window, no direct light, no direct sunlight. Temps in the room are between 60-75 Fahrenheit max. This is about the sixth arrow leaf plant I am unwillingly killing! It came from a healthy mother plant and was given to me by a neighbor. The neighbor said don't water it much so I don't. Please advise. thanks.
It's the shock of going from water culture to soil culture. When rooting a plant in water, it is best to transfer to soil as soon as the plant starts to root. When it's been in water so long, it's used to constant water. When it goes into soil and watered less, it suffers.
When it's been in water a long time and you are moving it to soil, water it often to begin with and slowly reduce the amount of watering.
I want to know if this is bad for the trees. It seems to have come out of nowhere and quickly grown all over the little oak trees. I'm debating whether I should cut them down? or just let them be?
Generally it's best not to grow vines up trees. Here is more information and how to remove them:
I have had this plant for a couple of years and every now and then it gets leaves like the photos here, but it seems to have more lately. I recently moved down the street and it gets more light now (still indirect). It had a few fungus gnats a couple months ago but I was able to get rid of them. I think I fertilized it a few times over the summer and repotted it. It has one drainage hole in the bottom. I let the soil dry out slightly on the top between waterings. I almost never mist it, so I'm wondering if dry air might be a problem. There are no signs of pests so I'm not sure what's causing this. The brown spots with yellow rings in the one photo make me think some kind of infection, but it's only on one or two leaves. Overall the plant looks healthy to me and is still growing. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you so much in advance.
I think increasing the humidity will help, either by misting daily or adding a pebble tray beneath the container. The plant also may need repotting. Their roots grow quickly.
If the brown spots are just on a couple of leaves I would just remove those leaves.
PLANT HAS VERY LONG STEMS, (LEGGY), ORIGINAL POT AND HAS NOT BEEN TAKEN CARE OF. LOCATED IN OFFICE. DO YOU PUT ROOTS IN WATER TO START OVER OR CUT WAY BACK AND REPOT OR GET NEW PLANT? THANK YOU
You can cut it way back and put the cuttings in water to root and start more plants. I also would repot if it hasn't been done in a few years. Here is more on its care:
