Shingle Plant


A handsome, commercially rare, vining houseplant that sports beautiful green foliage, the Shingle Plant has a curious growth habit: it climbs upwards on wood surfaces, with leaves slightly overlapping one another like shingles on a rooftop. This unique variety is grown and shipped, along with the wooden plank, fresh from our farm to your home.

  • Easy-care vining variety that thrives in warm/humid conditions.
  • Will grow along and attach itself to certain kinds of flat surfaces.
  • Can grow to be 3 feet or longer.

Plant Bio

Rhaphidophora hayi

Native to areas Southeast Asia, the Shingle Plant (Rhaphidophora hayi) is an uncommon member of the aroid family (Araceae) and closely related to monstera, philodendron, and pothos. A tropical vine, it appreciates warm, humid conditions and a sturdy support to climb up. For the leaves to have the flat, shingle-like effect, they need a vertical structure, such as a wall or plank, to grow against. Our Plant Hunter selected this species because it is relatively easy to grow in average household conditions and has only been available to plant collectors until now.

Note: This plant may have some natural degree of toxicity and may cause discomfort or illness if ingested. Additionally, exposure to the sap of this plant may cause discomfort to individuals with a sensitivity to it upon contact. Grown for ornamental purposes and not intended for human or animal consumption.
