Twisted Aquatic Arrowheads belong to a small genus of tropical evergreen aroids from Central and South America where they occur in marshes and wet areas. These extremely rarely seen species make peculiar inflorescences with an utmost showy spirally twisted spatha and ornamental sagittate (= arrow-shaped) leaves. Despite their native habitat all can be successfully grown in any humus rich soil, which should be kept wet at all times. Keep plants in partial shade (summer) to full sun (winter) at a minimum of some 20°C in winter.
Sow seeds flat and horizontally on any humus rich soil, cover seeds only slightly with soil. Keep soil moist at all times and pots at a minimum of some 25°C (optimum 28°C) in a sunny spot. In this species germination is very slowly and it may take up to 12 months. The first leaves are more or less lance-shaped and will gradually extend to the typical arrow-like form.
