Habitat: Moderate To High Humidity / Above 55°F

This is a plant that is going to require a decent amount of humidity and the temperature has to remain above 55 degrees. As long as you do this and there is enough indirect sunlight, the plant will have the variables needed to grow.

Maximum Size: 5 - 6'

This will depend on where the plant is set up. If it is indoors, the maximum height is going to be between 5-6'. If it is outdoors, the plant can grow double this size and it is common for the plant to reach exceptional heights in such conditions.

Space / Planter Size: Large

You will require enough space for at least 5-6' of growth. This means the planter will have to be a full-sized one and it needs to be located in the right spot to allow the plant to flourish.


This is a plant that is found in Southeast Asia including nations such as Indonesia and Malaysia. It has long been celebrated as a high-grade houseplant due to its style.

Plant Care

It is best to care for this plant by making sure it is in a bright space and is getting enough water when the soil is dry. You will also want to consider using specialized fertilizer to ensure the plant continues to grow and its roots remain stable.

Water: Moderate Watering

The best time to water this plant is by touching the soil to see if it's dry along the top 1-2 inches. As soon as the top of the soil is dry, it's time to pour in water. This will keep the root system as strong as it needs to be.

Sun: Bright, Indirect

You will want to put this plant in bright, indirect sunlight. This is going to help the plant grow without burning the leaves or causing them to dry quickly. If there is direct sunlight, this can do more damage than good.

Care Level: Moderate / High

It is going to be time-consuming to care for this plant but everything can be optimized when it's in the right spot. This includes having bright, indirect sunlight and complete access to water. If so, the root system will do well and it is going to continue to grow as you want it to.
