It is a strong plant that may produce stems 30 to 50 meters long and can grow tall into the canopy with a stem 2 to 4 cm in diameter and aerial roots. Though, it will be small indoors.

Dragon tail plant generates mature green leaves. Young leaves have complete edges and are elliptical to arrow-shaped. Mature leaves are thick, leathery, and deeply incised along the margins, resembling Monstera leaves up to 30-50cm long.
