the beautiful Monstera adansonii is the perfect addition to any living room or kitchen table.
Light: Prefers bright, indirect light but will tolerate moderate shade. Avoid direct sunlight.
Water: Water when the soil has started to dry out.
Temperature: Monstera like warm conditions from 18-27°C. Anything lower than this will reduce the plant's growth rate. It will tolerate 12°C and above but avoid cold draughts.
Humidity: Happy with average to high humidity levels. Cannot cope in dry air situations.
Care Tips: Wipe the leaves occasionally to remove accumulated dust. Leaves do tear and bruise easily, giving the plant a shabby chic appearance rather than a pristine look. Remove any damaged leaves as necessary.
Height and Growth Rate: Use a moss pole to support the plant (the roots will cling to this for support) or cut back if it gets too big. Slow to moderate growth, but depends upon the conditions.
Toxicity: Leaves are poisonous, keep away from pets and children.
Origin: Mexico and Central America.
