Monstera Deliciosa in vintage Indonesian Limestone Planter.


Monstera deliciosa, commonly known as the Swiss Cheese Plant or Split-Leaf Philodendron, is a popular and striking houseplant known for its unique foliage. Here's how to care for it:

Light: Provide bright, indirect sunlight for optimal growth. Avoid direct sunlight, especially intense midday sun, as it can scorch the leaves. However, some dappled morning or late afternoon sun is usually well-tolerated.

Temperature: Monstera deliciosa prefers warm temperatures between 65°F to 85°F. It can tolerate slightly cooler temperatures but should be protected from drafts and cold air.

Watering: Allow the top 1-2 inches (2.5-5 cm) of the soil to dry out before watering. Water thoroughly when watering, and ensure proper drainage to prevent overwatering and root rot. Reduce watering during the winter months when growth slows down.

Humidity: This plant thrives in higher humidity, ideally around 60% or more. Regular misting, using a humidity tray, or using a room humidifier can help maintain suitable moisture levels.

Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix that retains moisture but allows excess water to drain away from the roots.

Pruning: Prune to remove dead or yellowing leaves and to maintain the desired shape. You can also trim leggy growth to encourage bushier growth.

Aerial Roots: Monstera deliciosa produces aerial roots, which can be left to hang or gently tucked back into the soil to help the plant anchor and support itself.

Pest and Disease: Watch for common pests like spider mites, mealybugs, and scale. Inspect your plant regularly and treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.

Tips: Remember that Monstera deliciosa is known for its slow growth, and it's normal for new leaves to take time to develop splits and holes. Adjust your care routine based on the specific conditions of your plant and enjoy watching it thrive and grow over time.
