Mini monstera, mini split-leaf, Ginny philodendron… Rhaphidophora tetrasperma goes by many misleading names and is having a huge moment in the spotlight currently, thanks largely to social media. They are all the rage right now due to their cute split leaves, ease of care, and fast growth rate. R. tetrasperma bares a striking resemblance to a Monstera deliciosa at first glance, and it’s often incorrectly referred to as a Philodendron species. However, this plant is neither a Monstera or a Philodendron, although they are all in the same family Araceae (plants in this family are often referred to as “aroids”). Rhaphidophora tetrasperma in a a totally separate genus than those two plants.
It requires bright, filtered light. Indoors, direct sun is fine; outdoors, a little bit of dappled sun is fine as well. Rhaphidophora tetrasperma likes to stay pretty moist, at least during growing season, however this plant won’t pout if you forget to water it now and then, and is more sensitive to overwatering if anything.
