How to Care for Mini Monstera (Rhaphidophora tetrasperma)
Before you buy a Mini Monstera ‘Ginny’ plant, make sure to read about the care instructions that are required and recommended to keep this plant healthy and thriving.
What is the best light for a Mini Monstera?
Rhaphidophora tetrasperma thrives in the low light conditions indoors, often living with just fluorescent light. They can handle some bright, indirect light too, but too much direct sunlight will cause browning. Ideally, they should be placed next to a west-facing window for optimal light. It can be placed in a room with no light, as long as you place a grow light near your plant.
How often do you water Rhaphidophora tetrasperma?
Rhaphidophora tetrasperma does not like to dry out almost completely between waterings. It does not like to stay or sit in water. Plants that are watered too often will not survive. If unsure, do not water. Mini Split Leaf Monsteras can go weeks before being watered again.
What is the best soil for a Ginny plant?
Rhaphidophora tetrasperma prefers very well-draining potting soil and prefers to have dry conditions. Regular potting mix with sand mixed in works well for plants potted in containers, otherwise a cactus potting mix would work. The cactus potting mix already has sand and other ingredients to encourage drainage.
How do I fertilize a Mini Monstera Ginny?
Any all-purpose fertilizer will work for Rhaphidophora tetrasperma. Jack's Classic Indoor plant food works well as a powder, quick release fertilizer that is mixed with water to quickly provide nutrients to a plant that has been in a container for an extended time. Osmocote Indoor/Outdoor is an option as a granular, slow-release fertilizer that can be applied while potting and planting.
