Adopting and caring for Monstera Adansonii in a hanging pot
Adopting: Adding a lush, healthy Monstera Adansonii which is nestled in a hanging pot, to a plant collection is a feeling only a plant parent can understand. At eplants, we bring you display-ready plants with high-quality growth, compact shape and well-formed leaves
Locating: Exposure to strong, direct sunlight will scorch the leaves of a Monstera. These plants do best in brighter areas which offer filtered light. If you are locating a Monstera indoors, in an area of low light, it would be best to shift them around at least once a week to areas that offer better light conditions
Potting: Monstera needs rich, well-drained soil that has been fortified with organic material. So it is a good idea to mix good quantities of compost to the potting mix. A blend of coco-peat, compost and river sand in a 30:50:20 ratio should help your plant do well.
Watering: Monstera like regular watering, especially if they are growing in pots. Even though they can’t stand waterlogged conditions, a good, well-draining potting mixture is ideal to keep your plants happy.
Fertilising: The beauty of Monstera lie in their broad, glossy leaves. So while you fertilise the plants once a month in the growing season, your Monstera could do with bi-weekly foliar feed, of an organic variety. Ensure you dilute the liquid at half strength, as mentioned on the label.
Monstera are extremely easy to grow. Their ability to endure long periods in low light settings make them very popular indoor plants. These plants will achieve their most luscious green foliage in bright indirect light and at consistently warm temperatures.
