Rhaphidophora verstegii (Piper clypeatum)
Rhaphidophora versteegii, known to some as Piper clypeatum is an incredible shingler with insane bullate leaves that have a velvety, glittery shine. It is rare in the USA. It prefers high humidity and moderate light. Moist Sphagnum moss is useful for rooting this species.
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.
