The leaves of this species develop rather large, irregularly shaped holes in later life. This makes this plant similar to species of the South American Monstera genus. The Rhaphidophora genus mainly has species in tropical Asia, with Rhaphidophora megasperma occurring in the rainforest of Borneo. It is a rare species that grows as an epiphyte in trees, crawling and climbing to reach a length of up to 5 metres. The inflorescence is cream-coloured and is followed by yellow-orange fruits containing small seeds. 

The plant does well in a light location without direct sunlight and a well-drained soil with organic material (e.g. orchid soil). Allow the soil to dry for a while between watering. The plant copes well with low humidity, but grows better with high humidity or regular watering of the leaves. 

Sowing description: The already germinated seed can further develop into Sphagnum moss. Upon formation of the first leaf, it can be transferred to well-drained soil with organic matter. A temperature of 25-30grC is optimal for initial development.
