Rhaphidophora tetrasperma is a tropical plant that grows extremely well indoors. The green leafy plant has split leaves that make it look like a Monstera deliciosa or type of Philodendron. In fact, the Rhaphidophora tetrasperma is mistakenly called a Mini monstera, Ginny philodendron, or Philodendron Piccolo. Although Rhaphidophora tetrasperma is also a member of the family Araceae, it is not related to monsteras or philodendrons.



Rhaphidophora tetrasperma plants are easy to care for indoors. Their compact growth habit means they don’t grow as massive as some Monsteras or Swiss cheese plants. Being a member of the arum plant family (aroid), these plants look attractive in hanging baskets just like trailing philodendrons. Or, you could have the long stems climbing up a moss pole. Another location for your monstera-like plant is on a tabletop or shelf and let the split leaves drape over the pot.
