A rare climbing species hailing from Southeast Asia. Notable for its large green satin split leaves, Decursivas are becoming a plant shop favorite, and this is mainly attributed to their tropical persona.
When grown indoors, it does best in a location that receives several hours of bright, indirect light. Avoid prolonged periods of direct sunlight which can burn the plant’s leaves, but also avoid low-light conditions if possible. Ideally, this plant should be grown directly next to, or in front of, a bright window.
As with most aroids, the Rhaphidophora decursiva prefers a soil mix that is rich, light, and airy, while still retaining some moisture. A mixture of equal parts houseplant potting soil, perlite, and orchid bark, or an orchid bark mix is perfect for these tropical plants.
This plant should be watered once the top few inches of soil have dried out. The “soak and dry” method of watering is ideal for this Rhaphidophora. This means that when it comes time to water, you should water the plant thoroughly so that the plant’s soil is thoroughly soaked through. Then, ensure that all of the excess water has drained from the pot via the pot’s drainage holes and allow the soil to dry out slightly before repeating the process.
Temperature and Humidity
It prefers temperatures between 65 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. While the Rhaphidophora decursiva grows just fine in average household humidity levels, it will thrive if it is given some added humidity. Consider placing a small humidifier nearby, or grow your plant in a naturally humid room in your home such as the bathroom, laundry room, or even the kitchen.
