Rhaphidophora tetrasperma (TC)
Rhaphidophora tetrasperma has been a fan favourite indoor plant for many years, but has surged in popularity recently. Towards the end of 2019, it was introduced to various stores around North America as a tissue cultured (TC) specimen, meaning they are becoming more available and at lower prices! The TC version of this plant has slightly pointier leaves, leading many to believe it was a different plant (such as R. pertusa).
Sometimes incorrectly referred to as "Mini Monstera", these cute leaves won't take over your home but still have a tropical feel to them.
Bright indirect light, no long periods of direct sun, but a little in the morning or evening is ok. Will grow small leaves under insufficient light.
Water when top 1-2 inches is dry. Will tolerate slight periods of dryness, but appreciates regular watering. Sensitive to overwatering, so make sure medium is very well-draining.
Keep humidity medium to high
Pro tip: Give it a trellis or moss pole to really see its growth potential.
