Rhaphidophora tetrasperma is a rare aroid, often called "Mini Monstera" due to the splits in its small leaves and often is mislabeled as a Philodendron Minima. The Rhapidophora tetrasperma technically doesn’t belong to the Monstera or the Philodendron family, but as mentioned simply share in their looks. The Minima is found in Southern Thailand and Malaysia, as opposed to the Monstera and Philodendron species who generally reside in Central and South America.
This plant has thick stems that support its upright growth habit, plant around a fern pole, or totem to encourage your plant to grow up, and be sure to mist the pole to encourage your plant to anchor its roots. Your plant’s sturdy stem that supports its leaves are more likely to encourage horizontal growth and is said to make the plant leggy or sparse between the leaves. The Minima prefers a warm and humid environment as it is a tropical plant
• Light: moderate to bright, indirect light
