Rhaphidophora tetrasperma (Mini Monstera)
Not only is it super fun to say, its also super fun to look at too! This plant is often referred to as a ‘Mini Monstera’ but it isn’t actually a Monstera at all (although there are some definite similarities). The Rhaphidophora Tetrasperma has split leaves, like the Monstera (but much smaller), and which can vine quickly and grow up to 5 feet given the right environment. You can pot this in a hanging basket but note that letting the leaves hanging like this may decrease the amount of fenestrated leaves that grow on your plant. These vines like to climb and will grow bigger and more fenestrated leaves if allowed to do so. Great for anyone that loves the look of the Monstera deliciosa but who don't have the space for such a large plant.
Light: Rhaphidophora Tetrasperma enjoy bright indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight. If exposed to direct sunlight, watch for brown spots on the leaves indicating burning.
Water: Water when the first couple inches of the soil is dry, less during the winter, more during the warmer months when the plant is growing. Avoid over watering the Rhaphidophora Tetrasperma, they do not like to have saturated soil.
Humidity: Although adding humidity to your space is not necessary for a Rhaphidophora, they would sure be happier if you did.
