Philodendron Monstera "Ginny"

Description Rhaphidophora tetrasperma is commonly referred to as the Mini Monstera, Monstera Ginny, or Philodendron Ginnie. The Rhaphidophora tetrasperma features unique cut or split foliage, called fenestration, with thick vines.
Indoor Care In its natural habitat, the plant latches onto rainforest trees and climbs up. Similarly, as a houseplant, it enjoys the support of a pole, trellis, or stake to optimally grow skyward. Providing a bright spot with indirect sunlight is key for this houseplant. This means near a northern facing window or near a window that is shaded by a sheer curtain, as too much sunlight can burn the leaves. Rhaphidophora tetrasperma prefers moderate water, so allow the soil to partially dry out before watering again. When you do water, make sure it’s throughout the entire soil, allowing water to drain out the bottom holes of the pot. Just double-check to make sure no excess water is standing in the saucer as this can lead to root rot.

Your Rhaphidophora tetrasperma will need some fertilizer in spring and summer. Find a granular houseplant fertilizer (any common one will work) and apply half of the recommended amount about once a month. Around the end of summer, taper off as the plant prepares for colder months ahead. After about a year (or when you start to notice roots reaching out of the bottom pot), you will need to repot your plant to support new growth.

Toxicity Considered toxic to humans, cats and dogs if ingested.
Dimensions Available in 6" or 10" pots.
