Caring for Randall


Give Randall plenty of indirect light. A spot by an east facing window is ideal. 

Water & humidity

Randall originates from the jungle, but most obligingly, he's adapted well to normal household conditions, allowing city slickers all over the world to enjoy him! He likes compost rich soil that drains well. Let the soil dry out a bit between watering. Rather underwater than overwater. The top 2-3cm can dry out in winter and 1-2cm in summer.  


Yep, Randall's got a healthy appetite, with all that vining and climbing to do. Feed monthly with organic Nitrogen rich fertiliser for lush new growth. 


These plants are naturally climbers, scooting up jungle trees clinging on with aeriel roots. This means less need for frequent re-potting. However, be sure to replenish the potting soil every 6-12 months to ensure the plant has enough nutrients. A good potting soil rich in organic matter and nutrients is best.

Atrium Top Tip

As a climber, the Raphidophora enjoys regular pruning to keep it from looking leggy. Prune in Spring or Autumn by removing top growth, as well as dead or damaged leaves. Cut close to the stem to avoid stubs. This plant is easily propagated from cuttings.

Quirky plant fact

The fenestration (holes) in the leaves is said to be an adaptation to allow the plant to capture more light under the forest canopy. Some scientists also believe it helps the leaves to resist the strong winds of hurricanes. Others suggest that the holes make it easier for rain water to come into contact with the roots.
