Mini Monstera

SCENTIFIC NAME: Rhaphidophora tetrasperma

KNOWN AS: Monstera Minima, Philodendron Minima

CLIMATE (LOCATION): Southeast Asia | Subtropical

DESCRIPTION: Many people love plants with beautiful leaves. This plant is often mistaken for a mini version of a plant with very large leaves. The pattern on the leaves of this plant is more consistent, which makes it look more elegant and graceful. Although it isn't as wild as the other plant, it still has plenty of jungle vibes.

Mini Monstera Care

Water your plants thoroughly, but make sure to let the top inch or two dry out before watering again. This is especially important in winter, when you don't want to overwater your plants.
This plant likes bright indirect light, but not direct sunlight. If you have a lot of sunlight, make sure to water it often or it won't grow as much. If you have less light, it's okay, but make sure to water it less and don't expect it to grow as much.
This tropical epiphyte will appreciate a boost in humidity.
This plant can live in different climates, but it prefers warm weather. If it's cold or too dry, the snake might complain.
Mini Monstera leaves are mildly dangerous to pets and humans. If ingested, the leaves will cause irritation in the mouth and stomach, as well as vomiting in some cases.
To propagate a Mini Monstera, you will need a piece of stem with a node or aerial root. This is easy to spot because it is a brown knob or full on wiggly root sticking out along the green stem. Try to cut just below this node and remove the lower leaves to ensure a clear stem before rooting. This cutting will grow roots directly in water and in just a few weeks! Once the roots are a couple inches long, you can pot it up like any other plant.
