Latin Name: Rhaphidophora decursiva
Description: Commonly known as the "Dragon's Tail Plant", this rare, unique, tropical plant showcases large, glossy, deep green leaves that emerge solid as a young plant, and slowly develop deeply lobed slits in new foliage as new growth emerges. The palm-like leaves are known to grow quite large, sometimes as long as 2 feet long! This quick-grower prefers to climb, so a trellis, moss pole, or other support would be beneficial.
Watering: Water when the first few inches of soil have dried out completely. Does best in a chunky, well-draining soil mix.
Growth Rate: Rapid rate of growth
Sun or Shade: Bright, indirect sunlight to medium-low light
Difficulty level: Easy
