The Pink Arrowhead plant, or Syngonium Neon Robusta if you want to get scientific, is the beautiful pink variety of the popular arrowhead family! Their gorgeous arrow-shaped leaves look like pink hearts, bringing colour and love to any room.
As a low maintenance plant, they are incredibly easy to care for, making it the perfect plant even for the most beginner plant parent.
2. Polka Dot plant
Polka Dot plants, or Freckle Face in Australia, are common houseplants with a wide array of colourful displays. The pink splash variant is a super popular option, but they come in red or white too.
Anyone forget to water their plants from time to time? Us too! Luckily, these plants aren’t drama queens. While they love lots of water, they can survive quite well and will continue to flower, albeit less. They will not, unfortunately, survive the winter, especially if you leave them outside.
It is worth noting in Eastern Australian coastal districts, the polka dot plant is considered a weed by local councils. While still easily available at local nurseries, it may not be recommended in certain areas.
3. String of hearts
The sweetheart vine. Rosary vine. Chain of hearts. Whatever you want to call it, this trendy trailing vine plant features lovely pink variegated leaves, perfect for adding colour to shelves and window sills. They also make for exceptional hanging plants!
The colours will change with the seasons and intensity of light and small purple flowers will appear a few times a year. They have a semi-succulent type nature, meaning maintenance is minimal — most plants will only need one or two waters a week in summer.

Higher variegated philodendrons tend to be more pricey. Ultimately, it’s all about what you prefer. Who doesn’t like a good game of chance?
