Rhaphidophora tetrasperma Cutting
Sometimes called "mini Monstera," the stunning Rhaphidophora tetrasperma is a robust climbing plant with beautiful split leaves.
When you receive your Rhaphidophora tetrasperma cutting, remove it from the packaging immediately.
Cuttings should be placed in a glass or jar of water as soon as possible. Make sure that nodes (the spot where the leaf meets the stem and aerial roots form) are below the level of the water, and place in bright, indirect light. Change and refresh water 2-3 times per week.
Within the next several weeks, you will see new root growth beginning from the node. Allow roots to become several inches long and well established before transferring to well drained potting soil. This may take anywhere from several weeks to several months depending on season, conditions, and what type of plant you are propagating.
You may use clean, sharp scissors to divide your cutting into multiple pieces if you wish. Just make sure each section has viable nodes that can access the water.

Light + temperature
Rhaphidophora tetrasperma thrive in bright, indirect light. Direct light may burn their tender leaves.

Once potted, Rhaphidophora tetrasperma like their soil to dry out a bit between watering.These plants would rather stay dry a while than stay wet, especially in winter months.
Rhaphidophora tetrasperma are beautiful, but toxic to cats and dogs. Please contact your veterinarian if you suspect a pet has ingested any part of the plant.
Rhaphidophora tetrasperma wants to climb and will find a way to do it! A moss pole is ideal, but any support will do the trick -- these are often seen leaning on a bamboo stake, trellis, or a nearby wall.
