Notes for Identification: Source: floridata rice paper plant is grown for its attractive large, fan-shaped leaves. Use it in a sheltered location because it is susceptible to damage from wind. Rice paper plant is a good choice against a wall. Mix it with other large-leaved plants for a tropical look. In mild winter areas the rugged rice paper plant is a good choice for outdoor containers in frostfree areas and indoors where its dramatic foliage adds interest to any interior.   warning rice paper plant spreads by suckering and forms thickets, so use it where there is room for expansion. Some suckers may come up as far as 20 ft (2. 1 m) from the parent plant. Some people get a rash from contact with the foliage.
