Raphidophora tetrasperma is a fast-growing vining plant, sought after for its unique fenestrated leaves. Sometimes called “Dwarf Monstera” or “Monstera Ginny” due to its resemblance to Monstera deliciosa, the leaves of Raphidophora tetrasperma are similarly split with “windows,” 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.
Raphidophora tetrasperma are great air-purifying plants.
Plant Diameter: Varies
Light: Monstera prefers bright, indirect light—placing it near an east or south-facing window is ideal. Direct sun or too much light will burn or fade the leaves.
Water: Water Monstera when the soil becomes dry to a depth of 1-2 inches - likely every 7 days. Don’t allow the pot to stand in water, as this will cause root rot.
Humidity: Humidity will encourage your Monstera to put out new growth. During the winter months, mist your plant at least twice a week.
Fertilization: Fertilize monthly during the spring and summer with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength.
Pet Toxicity: Monstera leaves are toxic to pets and humans. Typically, ingestion will result in swelling of the lips and tongue, and stomach irritation with possible vomiting.
