Simply a must have for rare plant collectors and indoor jungle curators alike, we love the Rhaphidophora Decursiva because it’s easy to care for as well as a statement without being terribly high maintenance. These immature specimens are unassuming, but similar to their cousin, the Monstera Deliciosa, as this plant matures it’s stem will thicken and it’s leaves will grow in much larger. Then, if conditions are right, those leaves will begin to unfurl with deep fenestrations that multiply as the plant continues to grow.
