The Rhaphidophora tetrasperma features unique cut or split foliage, called fenestration, with thick vines. In its natural habitat, the plant latches onto rainforest trees and climbs up. Similarly, as a houseplant, it enjoys the support of a pole, trellis, or stake to optimally grow skyward.

Light: Providing a bright spot with indirect sunlight is key for this houseplant. This means near a northern facing window (that likely doesn’t experience direct rays throughout the day) or near any other window that is shaded by a sheer curtain. While a controlled amount of direct sunlight may be ok, too much can burn the leaves or cause color fading. 

Watering: Rhaphidophora tetrasperma prefers moderation. So allow the soil to partially (the top inch or so) dry out before watering again. When you do water, make sure it’s thorough and throughout the entire soil— allowing water to drain out the bottom holes of the pot. This ensures that the plant is properly hydrated as all parts of the roots are touched by water. Just double-check to make sure no excess water is standing in the saucer as this can lead to root rot.

Trying to keep in mind the plant’s natural environment (the rainforest) can be helpful too. Think about factors this plant would normally be exposed to— like rainshowers, heat, humidity, trees to climb up, and sunlight while protected under the tree canopy.
