Rhaphidophora korthalsii (Shingle Plant) is an erect, sparsely branched climber mostly grown in it's juvenile phase, when it has short stalked, elliptic-ovate, entire, blue-green leaves, to 4" long, closely overlapping, and lying flat along the stems. Mature leaves are entire, pinnatifid, or pinnatisect, and 8-16in (20-41cm) long, with stalks of the same length.

Care: When grown indoors, grow in bright filtered light.  Provide moderate humidity, draft free conditions, and the support of a moss pole or similar structure.  When in full growth, water moderately, mist regularly, and apply a balanced liquid fertilizer every 2-3 weeks; water sparingly in winter.
