Product Description

Rhaphidophora decursiva is a climbing plant in the Aroid family. You might not guess from the small pointed leaves of these starter plants, but this foliage of this plant will become gigantic and highly fenestrated in the right conditions. Leaves can grow to several feet long as this plants climbs trees that are large enough to support it. In the home it is not likely to reach such sizes, but its glossy green leaves still make for a wonderful tropical backdrop. Splits in the leaves develop as the plant matures. The height of the plants is highly affected by growing space and conditions. In suitable conditions and outdoor environment, it may get taller than about 50 feet. However, the indoor peeps remain around 5 feet on maturity. In the outdoors and wild, these plants grow around some large tree or a wall. The aerial roots help them to get attached and climb their host or support. Indoors provide with post or trellis to climb. An ideal temperature range for these is 55 to 80 °F. They generally love to stay warm. Moreover, they have poor tolerance for freezing temperatures. People of regions with winter getting colder than 50 °F need to bring them indoors for fall and winter. Care of Rhaphidophora decursiva: Bright indirect light, plant in well drained medium and water only when the top of the soil is dry to the touch. Family: Araceae

    Dragons Tail Rhaphidophora

    This plant was number 4 in order and it also arrived with a yellow leaf and one or 2 starting to turn. I'm not sure if it was due to plant being to damp and staying in box for a week at post office or questionable plant. I'm going with post office. This makes the second order from Hirts that I've had problems getting delivered. It too sits in window with its friends and will make a full recovery. It's a very interesting plant and I might get another one for a gift.
