Mini Monstera (Rhaphidophora tetrasperma)

This beautiful, fast-growing vine will make a statement in any home. Mini monstera plants need a tall totem or wall space to climb on, as they can reach 1-2 meters in a very short amount of time. Despite being commonly known as the mini monstera, this plant is more closely related to the dragon’s tail plant (Rhaphidophora decursiva), than the more common, large-leafed monstera (Monstera deliciosa) or fruit salad plant. The mini monstera is an easy plant to grow.

Growing Conditions

Aspect Mini monstera prefer bright to medium indirect light inside or on a patio.
