Huge, deep green and somewhat glossy, these leaves are only lacy on a gigantic scale, with long, finger-like lobes and tall, stiff petioles making this a perfect floor plant. Semi-woody and shrub-like, in its native habitat it will often send down aerial roots for support and may also climb by attaching itself to nearby trees with adventitious roots. This is a plant that will grow majestically horizontal with maturity: spreading outwards, yet keeping  its leaves held upright in a wreath-like form.
