Rhaphidophora hayi - Shingle Plant

Shingle plant earned its common name because of the way it climbs. As it grows, it produces aerial roots along its stem that secure it to a vertical surface. Its foliage also tends to grow flat against the support, giving the effect of lush green roof shingles. A climbing houseplant, shingle plant grows and looks best with a porous support on which to ascend. It's relatively slow growing, but can get several feet tall indoors. Eventually, with good care, it becomes a striking floor plant.apex acute with a tiny tubule.
Water shingle plant as the top two or three inches of the potting mix starts to dry to the touch. Take care not to overwater. If it stays wet for extended periods, its root may suffocate and rot.
Shingle plant prefers above-average humidity levels and can suffer if the air is too dry. Boost humidity in its environment by growing it in a large terrarium, over a large pebble tray, near a small humidifier, or grouped together with other houseplants.
