Rhaphidophora

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:

Lighting:

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

Water:

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. 

Fertilizing:

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

Humidity:

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

Temperature:

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

Toxicity:

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

Tips and Tricks

Propagating:

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.
