Rhaphidophora decursiva is a wonderful houseplant with large-growing, glossy green, palm-like leaves. This regal, tropical climber has elongated, juvenile foliage that emerges solid but with time will form deeply lobed slits. This Aroid can grow huge outdoors but will grow to around 5′ as a houseplant. The leaves are known to reach up to 3 feet long and 2 feet wide.
This fast-growing houseplant prefers to climb, so be ready to provide some support for it. Provide a rich, organic soil mix, avoiding sandy soils. It prefers bright, indirect light and make sure not to let the soil dry out. High humidity and temperatures above 65° F are ideal. Protect your Rhapidophora from cold winter temperatures. This plant is a showstopper! It is a must have for your tropical collection!
