Caring for your Monstera deliciosa

  • Monstera deliciosa likes bright indirect sunlight and will do fine with some direct gentle morning sun, too. Direct afternoon sun will likely be too intense.
  • Water when the potting mix is just about dry throughout the pot. Letting it fully dry throughout the pot is much better than keeping the mix too wet.
  • Remove any excess water from the saucer after watering.
  • Larger plants will need support from a pole or trellis. 
  • Fertilize once in spring and once during the summer with an all-purpose organic indoor fertilizer or use a liquid fertilizer every other time you water spring through summer.
  • Not pet safe.
