4" Rhaphidophora pertusa

$29.99
Care

 Bright indirect light

 Allow soil to dry almost completely between watering

 

Rhaphidophora pertusa is an uncommon indoor climbing plant that is occasionally confused with Rhaphidophora tetrasperma.  The difference between pertusa and tetrasperma is that pertusa leaves get much larger and fenestrate earlier than tetrasperma.

We highly recommend a coco pole or other form of support for your Rhaphidophora to climb.  As it climbs higher, the leaves will gradually become larger.

Rhaphidophora pertusa care:

This plant prefers a well draining soil that is rich in organic matter.  Allow the soil to dry out almost completely before watering, taking care to not allow your Rhaphidophora pertusa plant to sit in excess water for an extended period of time.  Provide your new indoor plant with plenty of bright indirect light for optimal growth.

Additional information:

Monstera, also referred to as "Swiss Cheese Plant", are a type of aroid native to many different countries in Latin America. Monstera can be found growing in its natural habitat in Costa Rica, Mexico, Brazil, Ecuador, Colombia, etc.

In the wild, Monstera have a variety of growth habits. They can climb or spread as ground cover. If they are allowed to climb, Monstera leaves will become much larger and begin to fenestrate. They are semi-epiphytic.

Monstera can grow in low indirect light but prefer medium to bright indirect light. If grown in low light conditions their growth will slow.

They tend to be easy to care for and make a great addition to any houseplant collection.
