Monstera is a popular unique indoor plant seen in many homes and offices. A Central American native plant, it is well known for its characteristic natural leaf-hole designs called fenestrations. Monstera plants love bright indirect light. They are an ideal plant even for the inexperienced plant owner being an easygoing vining house plant that can tolerate occasional missed watering.
Monstera plants have two species, the Monstera deliociosa, and Monstera adansonii. The latter has a longer leaf with a tapered end and completely enclosed holes. The leaf holes in a mature Monstera deliciosa have opened up as they grew towards the edge.
You may grow Monstera just about anywhere in your home. It thrives in low, medium to bright indirect light but grows faster in bright areas. It is not suited to intense direct sun as it may burn the leaves. It can however be acclimated to withstand it.
Water your Monstera when the soil is almost completely dried out or about every 1-2 weeks. Increase the watering frequency with increased light, more often during the warmer months while they are growing. Reduce watering during the winter months.
