Monstera Care Instructions

Below are basic care instructions for plants we currently have for sale or have recently sold in our shop.  Please understand these are just guidelines and do not apply to every environment.  Also, if you do not have one already; we highly suggest purchasing a water meter.

Adansonii - Put the plant near a window where it will receive bright, but indirect, sunlight. Trim the vines as needed if they start to look scraggly to encourage new growth. Watering is the trickiest part of caring for Monsteras. They like consistently moist soil but don't want to be soggy.

Deliciosa - Monsteras prefer soil that is lightly moist, and generally like to dry out a little bit between waterings. As epiphytes with aerial roots, they are sensitive to overwatering, so they don't want to sit in soggy soil. Once the top 2 to 4 inches of the soil are dry, your plant might use.

Laniata - A Monstera adansonii var. laniata plant thirsts for slightly moist soil. Keep in mind, the soil should be moist but never saturated. It's hard to keep a nice balance but please avoid over-watering your plant.

Peru - You must use well-draining soil. Place your monstera peru in the bathroom because it's a room with high humidity.  Don't provide more than 1-2 hours of direct morning sun.  Use a totem to make your Monstera Peru climb. Wipe the leaves with a damp cloth and gently dry to keep them clean and healthy.
