Cute little Monstera babes up for grabs !!
Monstera is a tropical plant from the Araceae family. Its name, as one might guess, comes from the Latin meaning “abnormal” because of its odd-looking, perforated leaves that are often punched through with holes.
Find a balance between sun and shade. If Monstera is given too much sun, the leaves will yellow. If it’s left in the dark, the plant will exhibit something called negative phototropism, where new leaves grow towards the dark, rather than the light. (It’s a pretty clever trick: In the jungle, darkness signals the presence of a larger tree that Monstera can climb up to reach sunlight.) Since this isn’t possible in a living room, indirect sun is best.
+ Also known as Swiss cheese plant due to their signature holey look, Monstera deliciosa is a natural climber.
+ In the wild it climbs up the bark of trees, so this houseplant will need its stems supported as they develop – small ponga logs are ideal.
+ Bright, filtered light and normal room temperatures will suit this species.
+ In hot spaces, place the pot on a tray with damp pebbles to improve humidity around the plant.
+ Feed every 2 weeks during the growing period (spring to autumn) with a standard liquid fertiliser.
To curb excessive growth, avoid re-potting to often.
