Product info

Rhaphidophora foraminifera sprouts in soil and develops along trees and rocky outcrops as a vine. This species anchors itself with aerial roots growing from its rhizome that could reach several meters in nature. The plain green leaves reach 40 cm when mature. Along the main nerve of mature leaves, two rows of perforations are formed. While this plant is mainly grown for its leaves, it could produce an occasional inflorescence. This inflorescence is similar to other aroids but then narrower.
