Tetrapanax papyrifera Steroidal Giant is family of the Araliaceae (Ginseng family), also known as rice paper plant or rice paper tree. This well frost-resistant foliage plant has an exotic appearance and is an ideal plant for the tropical garden.
This fast growing plant gets large leaves that do get a diameter of more than 1 meter.
Originally the plant comes from China and Taiwan. There the stem is used for the production of rice paper.

The Tetrapanax papyrifera is best planted as a solitary plant, it needs a lot of space.
Furthermore, the plant proliferates underground causing new shoots and smaller vegetation under the plant does not get a chance to develop. However, a root limiter is not necessary. Shoots that are too many can be chipped.
The plant may receive a small amount of organic fertilizer in the spring and summer every month.

The rice paper plant initially grows as a shrub, but in the winter it loses its leaves leaving bare stems of 1 to 2 meters in length (similar to a tree and slightly covered). Plants we supply in winter and early spring have no leaves, the leaves reappear in spring when it gets warmer. 
This plant is not always available and is therefore a unique eye-catcher in your exotic garden. No special measures need to be taken for the Steroidal Giant, which is the most hardy Tetrapanax papyrifera of its kind.
In case of prolonged and severe frost, the plant freezes completely, but returns in the spring.
Winter hardiness zone 6b (-20ºC).

Ik heb 2 hele mooie planten (jonge) gekregen en 1 liep met de groei wat achter maar ik had ze denk ik sneller in de volle grond moeten zetten. De ene loopt iets achter in de groei maar de andere is enorm gegroeid en doet het geweldig. Ben zeer tevreden over de planten en de kwaliteit. Kan u zeker aanbevelen voor de aanschaf van deze mooie tropische toch winterharde plant. Ik hoop dat ie in ieder geval de winter zal overleven (allebei) en dat ze volgend jaar weer prachtig op zullen komen. Zo niet, dan weet ik waar ik volgend jaar weer nieuwe kan kopen maar ze zijn al sterk en groot en hebben al hele grote bladeren dus ik ga t proberen ze over te houden buiten. Met vriendelijke groeten, Liz

Een verrassende boom/struik met prachtige bladeren met een bruinige donslaag op stelen en stam.

Verveeld niet en zowaar heb ik, nu na twee jaar twee kleintjes er bij gekregen, ongeveer ruim een

meter van de stam af. Heel leuk en byzonder om dit te zien.
