Monstera's are species of evergreen tropical vines and shrubs that are native to Central America. They are famous for their natural leaf-holes, which as created their nickname of a 'Swiss cheese Plant'. The Monstera's leaf-holes are their to maximise sun rays onto the forest floor. Aren't they clever and generous!
Indoors a Monstera grows a good few meters tall with its leaves coming from aerial roots, which can be used to grow up a coir totem in your home. The hard work has already been done for you with this option! Totem is in place and the Monstera is already using those aerial roots to secure itself safely onboard!
A Monstera thrives in bright to medium indirect light.
Allow the top of the soil to dry out before re-watering. A full wetting of all the soil every 2-3 weeks during the growing season (less in winter) is best to ensure all the roots can access moisture.
WE RECOMMENDED PLANTING IN...
These big beauties would love a bit more room to stretch their legs. Look for either a ceramic or plastic self watering pot that is at least 5-10cm larger in diameter.
