Bushy Rhaphidophora Tetrasperma after the rain

A photo of my bushy Rhaphidophora Tetrasperma after a rain storm. Rhaphidophora Tetrasperma's are commonly known as Monstera "Ginny," but they're actually not monstera plants at all!

I grew this outside during the summer in USDA Zone 6. They prefer high humidity and indirect light. I kept it in a shady area and it grew like a weed. It’s about time for a re-potting—you can’t even see the moss pole it’s growing on!
