Ralph, a Monstera Minima or Rhaphidophora Tetrasperma, originates from Southern Thailand and Malaysia and loves to climb! You can see why they're known as Mini Monsteras with the shape of their leaves and the fact they both love growing up trees in the wild.
Ralph is a fast grower and as he gets older he’ll need some support, such as a bamboo stick or coir pole, to reach his full potential.
Ralph, Monstera Minima
Ralph prefers bright indirect light to partial shade, without prolonged exposure to direct sun - a touch of morning sunlight however would be welcomed.
If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:
- Minimal shadow = lower light
- Half shadow = indirect light
- Full shadow = direct sun
