Rhaphidophora tetrasperma 85mm

The Rhapidophora tetrasperma sounds like a dinosaur, but it's not! He's one of our most desirable with his full-blown 'jungalow look and effortless care; He wouldn't even cry if you left the topsoil dry (1-2inches down) if you like... Psst! does enjoy a good old stake as he gets bigger.

Description

The Rhapidophora tetrasperma (actually somewhat fun to say) often gets called by the wrong name, which would annoy most, but this dude is so easygoing he doesn't mind. You might have heard him be called the Mini monstera or Philodendron Piccolo. Although he comes from the same family (Araceae), in actual fact, he isn't related to those guys and comes from a totally separate genus. He gets called these names because his leaves look really similar to the Monstera deliciosa. He is a fast-growing vining houseplant that is easygoing and will bring a jungle vibe to your office, lounge, or bathroom. 

His glossy green leaves develop splits once they age. He will quickly make himself at home and spill over a pot edge or climb up a totem for you. Place him in a warm, brightly lit spot with filtered or indirect sunlight and be careful not to overwater. Other than that will not cause you heartache or drama and will make himself at home within a matter of months. 

Our plants are beautifully grown and have well-developed roots. They are hardened, planted directly into the planters, and are excellent performing Indoor plants - it’s our plant promise guarantee!

  • How to water me
    Don't fret on the watering, it is better to underwater me than overwater. My hot tip - wait until the firs 2-3cms of my soil are dry to touch before giving me another drink

    Potting needs
    I like a good quality potting mix and will do well in a 170mm pot

    Tips and tricks
    I am easy to grow as long as I have enough light and not too much water. If you notice my leaves are starting to yellow and go mushy you might have given me too much water, so cut back. You can give me a feed with a liquid fertilser every few months to keep me looking my best.
