Description

The Rhaphidophora Tetrasperma is a beautiful plant from the large Araceae family. This plant is often confused with the Monstera Deliciosa because of the similarities in the leaves and is therefore often called Monstera Minima. The Rhaphidophora Tetrasperma is not a Monstera or Philodendron and even comes from a different sex. These plants also grow in different parts of the world. The Monstera en Philodendron are originated from Mid and South America, while the Rhaphidophora Tetrasperma come from Thailand and Malaysia.

With its beautifully shaped leaves, the Rhaphidophora Tetrasperma is a perfect addition to any plant collection, whether you are just starting out or your living room is already full with plants! A big advantage of this plant is that it’s an easy and fast growing plant. And if you are a fan of making cuttings, or you just want to venture into this, this certainly is an ideal plant!

Preferably you place the Rhaphidophora Tetrasperma in a spot with some indirect sunlight. Watch out with too much direct sunlight. Water the plant once a week and you will see new leaf growth in no time! From about April – September you can give the plant some extra plant nutrition once a month for a boost. Because the plant grows fast, it is advisable to re-pot the Rhaphidophora Tetrasperma once a year. Make sure that the new pot is approximately 20% larger, so that there is enough space for new growth.

Want to make cuttings from your plant? Then cuts off a piece of leaf with stem right under a node and make sure the stem has a (short) aerial root. Then place the cutting in a glass or small vase with some water. Does they cutting have some new roots? This means you can now put the cutting in soil to grown further. You can also let the cutting root in some sphagnum moss. This method works similar. When the new roots appear you put the cutting in some soil.
Make sure you first allow the wounds to dry thoroughly, preferably one or two days before you put the cutting on water or sphagnum moss to minimize the risk of rot!

    I received a large and very bushy and healthy looking plant that was also carefully packed. Great value for money, I would say!
