Type: Mid Century Modern Ceramic Cylinder
Size: 6 Inch Diameter
Light: Provide bright, indirect sunlight for your Monstera. While it can tolerate some lower light conditions, it thrives in bright, filtered light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves. Rotate the plant occasionally to ensure even growth.
Temperature: Maintain a warm environment with temperatures between 65-80°F (18-27°C). Avoid exposing the plant to cold drafts, as it is sensitive to temperature fluctuations.
Watering: Allow the top 1-2 inches (2.5-5 cm) of the soil to dry out between waterings. Water thoroughly but ensure that excess water drains from the pot. Empty the saucer beneath the pot to prevent waterlogged soil, which can lead to root rot. Reduce watering during the winter months when growth slows.
Humidity: Monstera deliciosa appreciates higher humidity levels. Increase humidity by misting the plant regularly, using a humidity tray, or placing a humidifier nearby. This is important to prevent leaf browning and promote healthy growth.
Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix with good aeration. A mix formulated for tropical plants or a blend of potting soil, perlite, and peat moss works well.
Pot: Choose a pot with drainage holes to prevent waterlogged soil. Repot your Monstera only when it becomes root-bound, typically every 2-3 years.
Fertilization: Feed your Monstera with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid fertilizing during the dormant season (fall and winter).
Support: As your Monstera grows, consider providing a support or trellis to help it climb and maintain an upright shape.
Pruning: Trim or prune your Monstera as needed to maintain its desired shape and remove any dead or yellowing leaves.
Pests: Keep an eye out for common indoor plant pests like spider mites and mealybugs. Inspect your plant regularly and treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
