Rhaphidophora Tetrasperma, also known as 'Mini Monstera,' Philodendron/Monstera 'Ginny,' or Philodendron 'Piccolo,' is a unique species of plants originating from Malaysia and Southern Thailand. Although these plants are part of the Araceae family, they belong to an independent genus known as Rhaphidophora.
This mini Monstera is considered an exotic jungle plant, but it can also be found in rainforests or dry climates making it an easy-to-grow houseplant. However, hanging these plants can result in smaller leaves without splits.
Rhaphidophora Tetrasperma is a rare tropical aroid, having small and graceful ornamental leaves with 6 inch split lobes. Their leaves look like a smaller version of Monstera Deliciosa, which is why it is mostly referred to by the name Mini Monstera. However, it is a completely different species, with no edible fruits.
Depending on the environmental conditions, these plants can reach up to 12 feet in height. As a houseplant, it is usually preferred at 4 to 5 feet tall. They are vining plants, having aerial roots that climb trees or whatever is good for them to stabilize as they grow, such as trellises.
