Light

Provide the Rhaphidophora tetrasperma with  bright, indirect light. While it will tolerate some exposure to direct sunlight, too much will cause yellowed chlorotic leaves.  For ideal light conditions, place your plant in front of a north- or east-facing window.

Water

During the growing season (spring and summer), keep the soil moist by watering it  when the top of the soil becomes dry to the touch.  Do not overwater.  While the Rhaphidophora likes moist conditions, it does not like its soil dense and soggy.  Water less frequently in the winter.

Temperature

The Rhaphidophora prefers typical household  temperatures (18-25 C).  Avoid extremely hot or cold conditions.

Humidity

The Rhaphidophora thrives in areas with  higher humidity (60%), but it will still do well in typical household humidity levels of 30% -40%.  For a happier plant, consider using a humidifier.  If a humidifier is not available, place the Rhaphidophora near a tray filled with pebbles and water, or group it with other indoor plants.

Fertilizer

Feed the Rhaphidophora two to three times a month during the growing season with a gentle, balanced fertilizer.

Pro Tips

  1. Plant the Rhaphidophora in well-draining sandy soil to avoid oversaturation and root rot.

  2. To propagate, cut the vine just below the node, and root the cutting in sphagnum moss, soil, or water.

  3. While the Rhaphidophora prefers natural sunlight, it will remain healthy under a grow light.
