Philodendron Minima, also known as Rhaphidophora Tetrasperma or Mini Monstera, is a tropical houseplant belonging to the ‘Rhaphidophora’ genus. It is a distant relative of Monsteras and Philodendrons under the same Arum/Araceae family.

The name comes from how the plant looks like a philodendron plant in its juvenile stage. As it matures, it resembles a mini version of the Monstera plant with split leaves but no holes.

The Philondendron Minima is an incredible addition to any room and will make your home feel like a true indoor jungle.

How to root your Philodendron Minima cutting

Philodendron Minima is one of the easiest indoor plants to propagate and you can choose to root your cutting directly in soil, water or in your choice of propagation substrate such as sphagnum moss, fern fibre, leca etc.

Water propagation is the fastest and easiest way to root your Philodendron Minima cutting. Fill your glass or jar with filtered water or allow the tap water to sit out in the open for a while to let the chlorine dissipate. Submerge the lower 1-2 nodes of your cutting in the water with the leaves up above. Make sure that no leaves are touching the water as this could lead to rot.

Then, place in a warm spot that receives plenty of bright, indirect light (no direct sun though) and change the water regularly until the roots are at least an inch long and your cutting is ready to be planted in soil.

Philodendron Minima Plant care 

Philodendron Minima tolerates low light but prefers bright, indirect light. Its well-draining soil should dry halfway before watering.

This plant likes warmer room temperatures, can handle normal humidity and is fairly hardy against pests and disease. Fertilize regularly during the growing season. 

Once established, give your Minima a support pole and let it climb to its heart’s content.
