This is a stunning shingle plant that would look fantastic in your plant collection. Rhaphidophora Korthalsii is a rare aerial root plant known for its flat climbing foliage. Native to Australia and nicknamed shingle plant. They are a relatively slow-growing houseplant that makes for a striking addition.

Rhaphidophora korthalsii will produce large fenestrated leaves at maturity. These plants do require a climbing structure to ensure they continue to grow correctly and the leaves continue to mature. If not required the leaves are likely to revert to immature growth and can grow “gappy”. 

This plants require bright and indirect light. Korthalsii like to be kept moist through spring and summer. Water about 3 times a week in warmer weather, allowing the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings to avoid root rot. Mist every few days during the growing season as well. Cut back on watering during the winter. These plants do need high humidity, 70% humidity is preferred, if the air is too dry the plant will not grow. Place near a humidifier or use a pebble tray with water to assist with this.


Please note you will receive the plant in the pictures provided sent bare rooted however it will be sent on the climbing structure to ensure safe shipment.
