The Monstera's large, glossy leaves are a real show stopper and the split leaves (known as fenestrations) make it one of the most easily identifiable houseplants.  Under the right conditions they are fast growing and considered an easy care plant.

You should not allow your monstera soil to dry out completely, they like to remain evenly moist.  Be careful you don't leave the soil too soggy or you run the risk of the plant getting root rot.


Monstera need the classic bright indirect light. Too much direct sun will burn the leaves and too  little and it will be slow growing.

Feed every 2 weeks with standard houseplant fertiliser during the Spring and Summer.

Monstera like a really well draining soil mix with lots of chunky elements for lots of aeration      around the roots.  Visit our soil bar to add orchid bark, grit and perlite to a standard houseplant mix


Standard household temperatures are fine for Monstera

Increased humidity is not a necessity for a Monstera but if you want those really big fenestrated  leaves, higher humidity will help. Achieve this with a pebble tray, grouping plants together or  with a humidifier

 Monstera are considered mildly toxic to humans and animals.
