The Monstera Deliciosa, or "Split Leaf Philodendron" is a plant that needs no introduction. Their iconic leaves have become a staple in modern design, from wallpaper to earrings, and they are prominently featured in every jungle-inspired photo spread.
The genus Monstera literally means "monstrous" or "abnormal" in Latin, referring to the "Swiss Cheese"- like holes in their leaves that have given them their popularity. While the young leaves of the Deliciosa may first emerge without splits, these quick-growing climbers will soon grow into fenestrated giants.
Light: Bright, indirect sunlight is ideal for your Monstera Deliciosa, though they can tolerate medium sun. Brighter sun will result in more prolific leaf growth and fenestration. Keep out of hot, direct sun to avoid leaf discoloration and burning.
Water: These plants prefer for their soil to stay slightly moist, but never soggy. Allow the soil to dry at least halfway down in the pot between waterings. Bright yellow leaves and black spots are an indicator of overwatering, while limp and curling leaves are a telltale sign to give your Monstera a drink.
Humidity: Moderate humidity is best for Monstera growth. We suggest adding a humidifier to your plant care routine if the air in your space is dry.
If ingested, poisonous to people and pets.
