- Botanical Name: Rhaphidophora cryptantha
- Common Names: Shingle Plant
- Description: Rhaphidophora cryptantha is a rare, evergreen, tropical, shingling climber native to Papua New Guinea. Lae Botanic Garden first cultivated it, and it isn’t clear if this is the actual native habitat. Some sources place the native habitat as Southeast Asia and African tropics. This plant is in high demand, and many plant collectors value its shingling growing habits and lovely foliage – it has beautiful, heart-shaped velvety green or dark green leaves with silvery green markings along the veins. When growing, the leaves press or lie flat on the climbing surface, resembling roofing shingles instead of fanning or growing outwards like most climbers.

Pollination of Rhaphidophora 'Cryptantha' (Shingle Plant) ():
It is generally recommended to wait to fertilize a bare root plant until it has been established in the ground and is actively growing. This can vary depending on the type of plant and the growing conditions, but it is generally best to wait at least a few weeks to a few months after planting.
During the first year, you should focus on providing the plant with the right amount of water, sunlight and soil to help it become established. Once the plant has become established and is actively growing, you can begin to fertilize it.
You can use a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer or one that is specifically formulated for the type of plant you have. Be sure to follow the instructions on the fertilizer package and apply it at the recommended rate.
It is also important to note that over-fertilizing can be harmful to plants, so it's always best to error on the side of caution and start with a lower amount of fertilizer and increase as needed.
