Pro tips

They are very easy to take care of, the secret is to not overwater them and pay attention to abnormal signs like yellow or falling leaves. They will also love a bit more humidity in the colder months! Water more frequently during warmer months and fertilize during growth.

Care Guide

How to take care of Monstera Deliciosa

They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, as it is too intense for them. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is fine and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.

They will thrive in bright light, but also can tolerate medium light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. They can be placed anywhere between the middle of the room and the window. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

They like the soil to be relatively dry before the next watering. That usually takes about two weeks in an average home environment. It may vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but for them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water (i.e. droopy, floppy, or soft leaves). Water more often in the warmer months!

They can live in any average home humidity condition and are fairly hardy. However, they will love you more if you give them some humidity.

This plant is moderately toxic and can cause some adverse reactions when ingested so it is best to not let your pets eat it, which we advise for all plants in general. The severity of the reaction will depend on how much of the plant is ingested but, if you know your pet typically does not eat your plants, this plant will be suitable for your home.

This is a Monstera Deliciosa, aka Swiss Cheese Plant, which is famous for its large, split leaves, otherwise known as fenestrations. These holes are thought to allow water to the roots as well as wind through the leaves to avoid ripping. Monsteras are a relatively low maintenance houseplant and, as long as your plant is kept in plenty of bright, indirect light, it will produce larger and larger leaves over time, with more and more splits developing as well. Also, with such large leaves, we would recommend wiping them off with a microfibre towel or showering them off every couple of weeks to remove any dust that has accumulated, which can get in the way of photosynthesis. Water your plant when the soil is almost completely dry because too much water will lead to root rot and spots on the leaves! Since this is a vining or climbing plant, which becomes more evident as the plant matures, it would be wise to support your plant with a moss pole. The aerial roots that form along with the vines of your plant as it grows can either be left to hang off of your plant or you can affix them to the moss pole to give your plant an anchor, but we do recommend leaving them attached to your plant.
