Taking care of Monstera

For a healthy Monstera, watering once a week is sufficient. Due to the tropical character of this beautiful hole plant, it is important that the potting soil always remains slightly moist. Don't let the soil dry out completely, but don't let too much water sit in the pot either. Too much water can cause root rot.

The leaves of a young Monstera show incisions, and when the leaves get a little older, holes appear. However, this does not happen when the plant is too dark. When aerial roots form on older plants, they may simply be cut off. The hole plant is a very strong plant and not difficult to maintain. Wipe a dulled leaf with a cloth dipped in buttermilk, so that it can shine again. Other care tips can be found in the Monstera plant guide .
