Rhaphidophora tetrasperma

Rhaphidophora tetrasperma (common names: "Mini Monstera", Philodendron "Ginny", Philodendron "Piccolo") is a species of plant in the family Araceae, genus Rhaphidophora. It is native to Southern Thailand and to Malaysia. This aroid has often been mistaken for other species and families, as evidenced by some of the above common names used by plant nurseries and retailers. Some of these mistaken identities include: Monstera deliciosa (mistaken for a miniature version), Philodendron sp., and Epipremnum pinnatum, which can all have similar, pinnate foliage, depending on the individual plant's stage of life.

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Plant in a location with bright, indirect sunlight. Position near to a window where direct sunlight cannot touch the foliage. If the plant gets too much light, the leaves will begin to turn yellow. If the stems are long and leggy without plenty of leaves, the plant is most likely to be receiving insufficient light.

 

Propagation

From Early Summer TO Late Summer

Cuttings require warm conditions. In summer, take stem cuttings or air layer the climbing varieties. With non-climbing varieties, shoots taken from the base of the stem can be used as cuttings.
