Raphaela's survival guide

Life’s a climb

Ohhh Raphaela - an extraordinary plant plagued with a common name… “Climb up some roof shingles once and get called a Shingles Plant for life,” she mutters under her breath in the greenhouse. Well Raphi, we still love you and support your uphill battle. Native to Australia and New Guinea, Raphaela loves to hang out under large canopy covers in the tropics. Don’t we all? In the rainforest, you’ll find her shingling (there it is) up some rather large trees. But here at Plantsome she doesn’t travel without her emotional support board. Whenever we ask her to part ways with it, she shows us the bird every shingle time!

How to care for Raphaela

The Rhaphidophora Korthalsii, otherwise known as the Shingle Plant, is a climbing plant native to the tropical rainforests of Australia and New Guinea. As an indoor plant, it requires a humid environment, bright indirect light, and well draining soil to avoid root rot. The Shingle Plant is a type of aroid, which means it has aerial roots that allow it to climb up trees, or wooden boards. As far as plant care needs, feed your Shingle plant in the Spring and Summer months using a tropical plant fertilizer and give it some nice bright light to grow. When kept indoors, the Rhaphidophora Korthalsii can grow up to 2 feet tall!
