Rare in nature but becoming trendy indoors, the Rhaphidophora tetrasperma is an easy to care for houseplant that loves all things in moderation. The unique split leaves resemble the Monstera deliciosa (hence the name Mini Monstera), but this smaller plant isn’t actually of the Monstera (or Philodendron) genus. This showy plant grows quickly when provided the right conditions.
