Rhaphidophora hayi is a rare and unique climbing plant that grows as a vine in a "shingler" pattern in the humid tropical biome. The heart-shaped miniature leaves have a velvety texture and dark green color. The plant retains its miniature form even when mature, making it perfect for closed terrariums.
