Shingle Plant 6"
The shingle plant is one of the most unusual houseplants you can grow. Its funky growth habit is responsible for its current popularity among houseplant enthusiasts (myself included!). Shingle plants have a vining stem that clings to trees, rocks, and other structures and climbs up them. Its leaves sit flush against whatever structure the plant is climbing. When the plant is mature, the leaves overlap slightly, making them look like green roofing shingles.
- Light: The shingle plant is tolerant of low light conditions, but it prefers bright indirect light if possible.
- Water: Shingle plants prefer moist soil. Since they are indigenous to tropical rain forests, do not allow them to dry out between waterings.
