MINI MONSTERA/ RHAPHIDOPHORA TETRASPERMA

ALUMINIUM PLANT/ PILEA CADIEREI

Commonly reffered to as a Mini Monstera due to the similar shape of the foliage to a Monstera but in a smaller size, but they are not in fact related and no one can pronounce it's real name Rhaphidophora tetrasperma! Position - This is a sideways climbing plant that can get very tall! So ensure you give it plenty of small, it will try to cling to your wall if it does not have a support in place. Water - The worst thing you can do is over water this indoor plant or leave it sitting in water, the leaves will go black and drop off, so ease off the watering and wait until the potting compost is totally dry before watering. Or if the plant is looking a little sad, leaves have lost their shine and are wilting for example, then you know to water. Tips - Encourage more stems and produce a multi stemmed, bushier plant by pinching out the tips (taking off the top leaves). Liquid feed every few weeks during Spring/Summer and watch it grow fast! Safety - Can cause serious mouth and digestive irritation if consumed by pets or humans. The best practice is always to keep houseplants out of reach of small children and pets Difficulty - Easy to Medium
