Monstera Deliciosapotted houseplant
Monstera are species of evergreen tropical vines and shrubs that are native to Central America. They are famous for their natural leaf-holes, which has led to the rise of their nickname, Swiss Cheese Plant.
Thrives in bright to medium indirect light. Not suited for intense, direct sun but can be acclimated to withstand it.
Water every 1-2 weeks, allowing soil to dry out between waterings. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light. Pro tip: Monsteras can benefit from filtered water or water left out overnight before using.
Normal room humidity will do, but prefers humid conditions if possible.
Consider incorporating a fine mist mister or humidifier to boost humidity level indoors.
Most houseplants prefer temps in the 65°F-85°F range (18°C-30°C). It’s best not to let it go below 60°F (15°C).
Use a well-draining potting mix. Mix in ingredients such as perlite or lava rocks to increase soil aeration as need.
The Monstera is an easy-going plant and is generally pest-free. Treat pests as soon as they appear with weekly sprays of a natural pesticide like neem oil and regular wipe-downs of the plant.
SYMPTOM: Leaves turning brown and crispy at the edges

Monsteras can be irritating to cats, dogs, and humans if foliage consumed. Best practice is always to keep houseplants out of reach of small children and pets.
