Know more about Monstera Deliciosa

Monstera Deliciosa is recognizable by its large, glossy unique green leaves with deep splits and holes called fenestrations that appear when the plant matures.

Monsteras are climbing plants native to southern Mexico and Central America that use its aerial roots to cling to large trees, so you should provide it with moss-covered support sticks or a trellis. If its aerial roots get unruly you can trim them, but it’s best to just tuck them back into the pot.

Monsteras are toxic if ingested, so think it twice before getting one if you have cats, dogs or children.

Key tips for successful care

  • Mist the leaves to increase humidity.
  • Wipe the leaves with a damp cloth and gently dry to keep them clean and healthy.
  • Don't let your Monstera remain in the water.
  • Monstera Deliciosa roots are not the type of roots that damage walls or surfaces.
  • Rotate your Monstera Deliciosa periodically.
  • Use totems or structures to let it climb so it can grow even bigger.
