Flowers: It is unusual for the arrowhead plant to produce flowers indoors. When flowers do appear the greenish/white blooms look something like Peace lily blooms with a thicker spadex (the central shaft that bears the individual flowers and berries). The tiny flowers develop into brownish-black or red berries.

Foliage: Leaves vary in color depending upon the plant variety. On all varieties, leaves transform from small ovate leaves too long, lobed leaves. Color and markings also change throughout the lifespan of the leaf.

When leaves first emerge, they are relatively arrow shaped and often display silvery variegation.

When the leaves on the arrowhead plant ages, they attain the arrow shaped leaves that gives them their common name. As the leaves further mature, they grow from about five inches long to about fourteen inches long.

Colors: Leaves are usually heavily variegated when young. The variegation tends to fade as the arrowhead plant leaves mature. Leaves come in attractive shades of green and white, silver, cream, pink, and even purple.
