This is the tissue culture (TC) form of Rhaphidophora tetrasperma that is often confused with Rhaphidophora pertusa. As it grows up a totem, it does get thicker, mature leaves like the form I usually propagate from cuttings.

R, tetrasperma is a native of Thailand and Malaysia and was discovered in the late 1800’s.  Rare in nature, Rhaphidophora tetrasperma is a small growing climber that only grows in a few locations on the Malaysian peninsula near Kelantan and Perak as well as southern Thailand. It is a great houseplant, especially for anyone who simply doesn’t have the room for some of the huge aroid species, but still wants that tropical look. Plants available have leaves about 4″ long as in the image.
