Description

This plant features an impossible name and a unique resemblance to a Monstera. Commonly known as Monstera minima due to the shape of its leaves, it is not a Monstera at all! Though it does come from the same family (the Aroids), Rhaphidophora is its own genus. However it may be called, it is a beautiful, climbing plant displaying gorgeous green, oddly shaped foliage.

Size: 14cm pot

Origin: Southern Thailand and Malasia.

Care

Light: Indirect light

Humidity: Moderate

Temperature: 17-27ºC

Watering: Allow the top 2-3 cm of the compost to dry between waterings when the plant is actively growing, usually from spring through autumn. Reduce watering frequency in winter when light levels are lower.

Feeding: Use half the recommended strength of balanced liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks from spring through autumn.

Soil: 3 to 1 parts of coco coir, orchid bark and sand or a well-draining potting mix.

Tip: Tie the stems to a moss pole or cane so that the leaves can climb up. This plant can be toxic if ingested, so we advise to keep it away from pets and children. Direct sunlight can leave sunburn marks on the leaves. Keep it away from drafts and radiators.
