Monstera Minima | Rhaphidophora tetrasperma

I am one of the most popular plants amongst Instagram's plant lovers - just check out the number of posts with #rhaphidophoratetrasperma!

Useful to know:

Origin

I come from Southern Thailand and Malaysia

Height/Growth

I am a speedy grower and love to climb so get me some supports soon if you want me upright. I have been known to grow to 5m in the wild! If you let me trail, my vines will become a little leggy and the leaves may not split as nicely as if you help me climb.

Light

I like bright light and can deal with direct sunlight so keep me near a window.

Water

I prefer to have my soil moist in growing season and cut back in winter but I'm hardy and will forgive less frequent watering. I'd prefer that to overwatering please!

Temperature

I'm happy with normal room temperatures. I like humidity so if you can, op me near other plants or in a humid environment, but don't worry if you can't - I'm hardy and can take it.

Feeding

I love a high-nitrogen fertiliser dose once a month but only during growing season. Please don't feed me during winter.

Grooming

I am a fast grower, so cut me back if I start taking over your home!

Care

Because of my vigorous growth, I will need repotting at least once a year. I like well-draining soil with perlite/pumice and bark mixed in best.

Toxicity

I am toxic so make sure my leaves aren't ingested by curious pets and kids.

Fact

I am often mistaken for a member of the Monstera family, hence my common name Monstera Minima or sometimes Piccolo. Some also mistake me for a Philodendron. Click here to buy a similar plant - Monkey Mask Monstera.
