Rhaphidophora Tetrasperma leave


  • Native to Thailand and Malyasia
  • Can be from dry to moist forests
  • Would benefit from a sphagnum pole
  • Leaves will be larger and have more fenestrations if staked


  • Easy


  • Bright diffused light
  • Doesn’t like direct light (will burn leaves)
  • Has thin leaves, not waxy cuticles


  • Likes humidity, moderate to high would be great, especially if light is more intense
  • 60% would be good, but not picky if not available


  • Water right before when soil is dry (maybe an inch down or so)
  • Stems will get brown if getting too dry
  • Once a week is a good place to start
  • Use filtered or distilled water


  • TBD


Potting Medium

  • Well draining
  • Leave in nursury pot for as long as possible to get it to acclimate


  • Gentle
  • 20:20:20 bi-monthly or monthly during growing season
  • Synthetic: cut in half!
  • Can go higher on nitrogen to give healthy leaves


  • Pretty resilient, but can be prone to thrips (has thin leaves)
