Rhaphidophora Tetrasperma - (Monstera Minima)

This plant is sometimes compared with our beloved Monstera Deliciosa. Its fenestrations (natural holes in the leaves) are more irregular, making this species a little quirkier. Most people call it Monstera Minima but it’s not actually part of the Monstera family - it’s a Rhapidophora.
Unlike the Monstera Deliciosa, you can see the natural holes in the leaves even at early stages of growth.

Care Guide


This beauty loves bright light and can tolerate some direct sunlight, so ideal to keep near a window. The more light you give it, the more growth it will show.


Water your plant when the soil is completely dry during Winter to avoid overwatering. During Summer try to keep its soil moist.


These plants love humidity. If you can provide it extra humidity it will love you for it. You can group several plants together to naturally increase humidity.

Other Tips

Make sure to clean all leaves with a dry cloth – dust can affect its absorption of light. During growing season you can feed your plant once a month with a balanced or high-nitrogen fertiliser. It's a pretty fast grower so you might need to trim it back if it’s taking over your home. This is a great opportunity to propagate and multiply your plants. Just make sure to cut it under a node (normally under a split of 1-2 leaves). As your plant grows you might want to support it with a moss pole (this encourages the plant to grow upwards).



Mildly toxic for pets and children if eaten.
