Rhaphidophora tetrasperma - Mini Monstera


Also known as the 'Mini Monstera', the Philodendron 'Minima' is a vining plant with small glossy green leaves that develop fenestrations as they mature. Growth on this plant is fast and its ease of care makes a highly sought-after plant in the market. Interestingly, the mini monstera technically doesn’t belong to the Monstera or the Philodendron family, simply share in their looks.

In contrast to the popular Monstera Deliciosa, the mini monstera sees holes in its leaves at an early age. Mini Monstera prefers bright indirect light and high humidity for the best growth.
