General Information and Care: Rhaphidophora hongkongensis is another great shingling plant for a terrarium. This species is very distinct from others based on the leaf shape. The new leaves are a bright green and slowly changed to a deeper green as they mature. Typically in a terrarium, the leaves are about 1-2" in length and 1" in width. This species does best when given a vertical surface to climb and cling to.
