Looking for a unique houseplant to spruce up your home?  Rhaphidophora ‘Hayi’, also known as a Shingle Plant or Shingle Vine, will make you the talk of the town. This plant’s stems grow tightly up a climbing surface, while its green leaves lay flat, resembling roofing shingles! Use a board or pole to encourage upward growth, and watch it climb!

Best Locations For Growing Rhaphidophora Hayi Shingle Plant

Your Shingle Plant will look great in a living room or bedroom, adding drama to the room as it climbs up. However, this plant is toxic to humans and animals, so you need to keep it out of reach of pets and children. 

Rhaphidophora Hayi Shingle Plant Sunlight Requirements

This plant is native to tropical rainforests, where it is used to being shaded by tree cover. That means you’ll want to give it bright indirect light. Overexposure to direct sunlight can cause leaf burn. However, this plant can also tolerate low light conditions. 

Rhaphidophora Hayi Shingle Plant Care

The Shingle Plant needs rich, well-draining soil to thrive. Make sure you have proper drainage to avoid root rot. 

To successfully grow this plant, you’ll need to provide a structure for it to climb. You can use a moss pole, moss board, wooden board or tree branch. Secure your plant by using soft string or vinyl plant tape. It will eventually grab on by itself.

Watering Rhaphidophora Hayi Shingle Plant Plant

This plant needs to be kept moist throughout the spring and summer. Generally, water it about three times a week, allowing the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. During the winter, cut back watering to once a week. You may also mist the plant every few days to encourage growth. Make sure not to overwater your Shingle Plant. Yellowing leaves indicate that you’ve given it too much water.

This plant also loves humidity—at least 70 percent humidity is preferred. Use a humidifier or place a pebble tray nearby. You can also keep it in a humid room like the bathroom, where it will benefit from shower mist.

Feeding Rhaphidophora Hayi Shingle Plant

Fertilize your Shingle Plant in the spring and summer using a general-purpose houseplant fertilizer.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
