CareGeneral Maintenance: Monsteras like to be slightly rootbound, so they will not need to be repotted very often. They can grow freely or be trained to climb up a trellis or moss pole for a more clean/compact look. The older the plant is, the larger and more fenestrated the leaves will be. They are very easy to propagate by rooting cuttings with nodes in water until the roots are 2-3 inches long, and then planting into soil.
Temperature: Thrives in normal household temperatures, between 15ºC-26ºC. Keep away from drafts and drastic temperature changes.
Light: Plenty of bright indirect light is ideal. They can handle some direct sun, but too much can potentially scorch their leaves.
Watering: Water once every 1-2 weeks, and let the soil dry out almost completely between waterings. Monsteras hate to be overwatered, so ensure your pot has proper drainage to avoid the roots sitting in excess water.
Soil: A well-draining potting mix is essential. Adding perlite or orchid mix to your soil is a great way to improve drainage.
Fertilizer: Feed with a balanced liquid fertilizer once every 3 weeks during the spring and summer months.
