Raphidophora tetrasperma is a fast growing vining plant, sought after for its unique fenestrated leaves. Sometimes called Dwarf Monsteraâ " or Monstera Ginnyâ " due to is resemblance to Monstera deliciosa, the leaves of Raphidophora tetrasperma are similarly split with windows,â " but stay quite small. This plant is easy to care for, and loves to climb up a moss pole. It's easy to propagate from stem tip cuttings, and thrives in bright indirect light.
Size: 5" Growers pot
Rhaphidophora tetrasperma requires bright, filtered light. Indoors, direct sun is fine; outdoors, a little bit of dappled sun is fine as well. In my case, I keep it near a west-facing window (northern hemisphere), and outdoors I keep it in bright shade that gets a touch of morning sun. R. tetrasperma is decidedly NOT a low light plant - it will grow slowly and will produce small foliage if placed in an area with too little light.
Watering: Rhaphidophora tetrasperma likes to stay pretty moist, at least during growing season. I've personally noticed faster growth with regular waterings and not leaving it too dry for too long. That said, this plant won't pout if you forget to water it now and then, and is more sensitive to overwatering if anything typically water when the potting medium is dried down 1-2" and I don't let the root ball dry out. In the winter, you can cut down watering.
