General Information and Care: Rhaphidophora cryptantha is a shingling species with a fantastic white leaf venation. This species will do best when given a background or hardscape item to climb as it is a shingling species. If it is not given anything to climb, the vine will tend to be a bit leggier and the leaves will be spaced much further apart. Typically as a younger plant, the leaves will only be around 1" in diameter. However, as it matures, the leaves can get up to 4" in diameter.
