Rhaphidophora is one of the largest aroid genera in tropical Asia.Rhaphidophora has plants that retain their neotenic (juvenile) appearance and those that transform to have leaves that are large, entire, split, fenestrated or both. Also, some species shingle (grow appressed to the climbing surface, especially in the juvenile stage), and others have erect leaves. You will find them climbing on tree trunks, rocks, and occasionally fast-moving water in these places. Some Rhaphidophora plants make very easy-to-care-for houseplants and some require a bit more attention to their care.
