Rhaphidophora Decursiva Care Guide


Rhaphidophora decursiva  needs bright indirect light to thrive. If your home is too  dark, the lack of light can cause leggy growth and the leaves to get smaller. However, direct sunlight exposure can burn the plant’s leaves.


The ideal soil mix for this plant should be rich in organic matter, well-draining, and moisture-retentive. If the soil dries out too fast, this can result in underwatering issues and curling, yellowing leaves.
