Rhaphidorphora Tetrasperma "Mini Monstera" 4 inch
This lovely vining plant has striking fenestrated leaves. It’s sometimes called the “Mini monstera plant” as it resembles its relative Monstera deliciosa, but in a cool mini version. These lush plants use their aerial roots to climb trees or trellises. Their aerial roots latch on to whatever they’re clambering up to stabilize them as they grow. With small, green foliage, this plant grows fast and prefers moist conditions.
Like a lot of Aroids, these like bright indirect light. Too much direct sun can cause the leaves to sunburn and turn yellow. A west-facing window is ideal, but in front of a south facing window is great too, as long as the light is diffused.
Rhaphidophora tetrasperma like to have damp soil, but definitely not soggy as soggy soil causes root rot. A good rule of thumb is to let the top few inches of potting mix dry out before you thoroughly water the plant again. During the winter months this should be less often than the growing season. As growth slows down the plant needs less water. A lot of people like to bottom water and if you are one of those, you can still stick your finger in the potting mix to gauge if it needs water or you can lift the pot and gauge by weight. They don’t want to be soggy, but they do not like to sit dry either.
