Rhaphidophora pachyphylla is a small shingling species from New Guinea. It is quite an aggressive shingler, and is interesting due to the fact that it will grow downward after reaching the top of a vivarium. It adheres to backgrounds quite well, and makes for a nice addition to any vivarium. These Rhaphidophora do well in moderate, indirect light and high humidity. They root easily when their adventitious roots are bundled in moist sphagnum moss.
All of our cuttings have adventitious, aerial roots. Our rooted specimens will have at least a few active roots and will be established plants. Our plants are grown in high humidity in terrariums and greenhouses, therefore may need acclimation to the average home humidity / environment. Please contact us for acclimation information if you are not planning to use this plant in a terrarium, greenhouse, or humid room.
