Rhaphidophoras are not philodendrons, and this so-called Creeping Philodendron displays the climbing nature of its species. Rhaphidophora decursiva needs to climb if it is to thrive and it will throw out aerial roots as it grows. Immature leaves are solid oblongs, pointed at the ends and have a beautiful sheen. As the plant matures, leaves will become deeply lobed, almost to the middle vein. Sources say that as a houseplant, this variety can eventually reach five feet in height, with individual leaves growing to almost four feet in length and up to two feet in width. Sources also say this is a "low-maintenance" houseplant; however, as a tropical plant, this beauty needs higher humidity, lots of indirect light to grow, and deep waterings when the top inch of soil is dry. It's just as well this rhaphidophora is a climber, as it is toxic if ingested, and it will be easier to keep out of reach of munching pets.
