Rhaphidophora Decursiva is one of our shops favorite plants. This easy to grow aroid enjoys higher levels of humidity and indirect light. Decursiva in its natural habitat will be found climbing trees, walls, and fences. When your Decursiva is allowed to climb its leaves will grow to a massive 40 cm with splits along the midrib of the leaf blade. We recommend allowing the soil of your Decursiva to dry out entirely between waterings.
Rhaphidophra will grow beautifully outdoors, but they are not winter hardy and should be brought inside once temperatures dip below 55 degrees. Spring through Fall, keep your Rhaphidophra in Full Shade and make sure it is not receiving any hot, direct sun. Water once your plant has had a chance to dry out, usually about every 4-6 days with moderate temperatures. You may need to water your Rhaphidophra every 2-3 days during periods of extreme heat.
