Rhaphidophora tetrasperma

Rhaphidophora tetrasperma: Rhaphidophora tetrasperma, also known as "mini monstera," is a tropical plant that can be propagated through seed. To germinate the seeds, start by soaking them in water for 24 hours to help soften the hard seed coat. Then, prepare a well-draining potting mix with equal parts peat moss, perlite, and vermiculite. Sow the seeds in the mix and cover lightly with a thin layer of vermiculite. Mist the surface of the mix with water to keep it moist, and cover the container with a clear plastic bag or lid to maintain humidity. Place the container in a warm, bright location, ideally with temperatures between 70-80�F (21-27�C). Germination can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
