The Rhaphidophora tetrasperma, also known as the Monstera or Philodendron Minima, is the newest plant in our collection! It’s such an easy plant to take care of, and is a really fast grower! We ship cuttings including one leaf, which can be with or without roots depending on the stock. When you buy a rooted cutting, roots are at least 5 cm long, and can be directly transferred to soil. However, both rooted and unrooted cuttings can grow (longer) roots in water! Our Propagation Plate Size Medium is perfect for this process, as it prevents the cuttings to fall out off/in the water. When the root is at least 5 cm long, the cutting(s) can be placed into soil! After transferring the cuttings into soil, make sure to keep the soil moist as the roots are used to a lot of water. When the cuttings mature, you can slightly decrease the amounts of water.
Side note & tip: one cutting of the Rhaphidophora tetrasperma will form one string of leaves. If you want a fuller plant, buy more than one cutting, which you place together in a pot. The size of the leaves may vary between 9 and 15 cm.
The following care tips can be used for the Rhaphidophora tetrasperma:
