House Plants/Arrow Plant


I read your answer about brown spots on an arrow plant.  Should the leaves with brown spots be removed?  I keep moving the plant to see where it likes it... how much sun should the plant get.  I have it where it gets filtered light in the afternoon.  Thanks so much!


Your plant loves as much sun as possible. Mine hangs in a south window with no curtains or other window treatments so it gets full sun all the time. I would cut off all the damaged leaves or even cut the entire plant down to about 1 inch above the soil line then allow it to regrow. Fertilize it monthly wit a water soluble fertilizer such as Miracle Grow. Water it well once a week or more often if it dries out sooner. If you have more questions feel free to write again. Good luck!
