Another highly sought after shingling plant! While at this stage it’s similar in appearance to the Rhaphidaphora Hayi, as it matures the leaves of the Rhaphidaphora Korthalsii grow large and fenestrated with time, similar to a Monstera Deliciosa! While we don’t recommend these for new collectors, if you have other rare jungle plants doing well in your home you should be fine with this one. Mimic the moist, humid conditions of the jungle floor and this plant will be happy!

Available in 6-Inch Nursery Pot mounted to Wood Plaque
