The “Shingle Plant” is a unique Rhaphidophora variety known for its peculiar growth habits. As the name suggests, this epiphytic aroid grows flat against trees or rocks in nature in a shingled pattern, with oval-shaped leaves that stay petite even as the plant reaches heights of several feet tall.

Native to the tropics of Asia, New Guinea, and northern Queensland, Australia, the Rhaphidophora Hayi fairs best in a warm, humid habitat mimicking its native environment. Provide this plant with a porous surface to root to and watch it climb!

Light: Bright, indirect sunlight is ideal for this vining Rhaphidophora. Brighter sun will result in more prolific leaf growth, but avoid hot, direct sun as too much sun exposure can result in leaf discoloration and sunburn.

Water: Allow the soil to dry at least two to three inches down in the container between waterings. You want to keep the soil slightly moist, but never soggy, and avoid any prospect of overwatering. Plant in well-draining, chunky soil to maintain proper aeration.

Humidity: High humidity is best for Rhaphidophora Hayi growth. We suggest adding a humidifier to your plant care routine if the air in your space is dry.

If ingested, poisonous to people and pets.
