Rhaphidophora decursiva


Raphidophora decurisva is a rare climbing tropical with shiny, textured, dark green foliage. It develops dramatic fenestrations with a few years of maturity, and the leaves will grow quite large indoors. They are an easy-care variety - attach to a moss pole to encourage larger leaf growth.


Rhaphidophora Decursiva is originally from China, India, and other tropical parts of Southeast Asia. They naturally grow up the sides of trees, latching large roots around the tree trunks. In their natural habitat, leaves can grow to be up to 40” long and 20” wide.


This tropical plant is from the rainforest, so try and mimic the same lighting conditions in your home. A bright indirect light or dappled sunlight is best. Look out for sunburns on the leaves if it’s getting some direct sunlight and adjust plant placement accordingly.


Rhaphidophora Decursiva prefers an airy, well-draining soil mixture. When watering, fully saturate the soil, and water once at least the top two inches of the soil is dry.

Tula's Tip

Attach to a moss pole to encourage larger leaf growth, as it mimics their natural growing habit in the rainforest.
