Rhaphidophora tetrasperma or "mini monstera" or "monstera ginny" is actually not a monstera at all. The cuts in the leaves just look similar! 

Easy Care Facts:


Mini monstera prefer bright indirect light, but many can handle lower light conditions as well. Avoid direct sunlight because the leaves will burn.


Rhaphidophora prefer to dry out quite a bit between waterings. Wait until 3/4 of the soil is dry. The leaves will help give you clues. Yellow tends to be from underwatering, while brown indicates overwatering. 


Utilize fertilizer Spring-Fall (local weather depending). Fertilize about once a month using a high quality fertilizer at half strength. 


Regular humidity will be fine for most mini monstera, but to encourage larger growth use a humidifier and mist regularly. 


The ideal temperature in the day is 70-85=0 degrees. Drafts and sudden temperature changes will cause shock to the plant.


Rhaphidophora are toxic to human and pets. Consumption will result in stomach irritation and swelling of lips and tongue. 

Tips and Tricks


Mini monstera are fairly easy to propagate, but the process can take a while. You can propagate any part of the stem that contains a node. Utilizing perlite or sphagnum moss can help prevent root rot which is common with water proportions.
