Letting a rhaphidophora tetrasperma climb a ficus lyrata?

I recently moved my rhaphidophora tetrasperma (definitely a tissue culture or even maybe a pertusa) close to my ficus lyrata. They are both in plant stands that are right next to each other. The tetrasperma is already making moves toward the ficus, as if it is looking to climb the trunk. I haven't staked the tetrasperma up yet and was wondering if anyone has experience letting a climbing plant use another indoor plant/tree as a climbing object? This ficus lyrata has been in my house for approximately two years and has a pretty sturdy trunk. The tetrasperma has only been in my house approximately five months and is really starting to take off. Any advice about allowing this to happen? Especially if this is potentially harmful for the ficus lyrata.
