Say hello to the Monstera Adansonii
Monstera is a vining plant belonging to the Araceae family. It’s an easy to grow plant that evolved in the tropical forests of Americas. Over its evolution, Monstera has developed the ability to thrive in the shade, and also in areas with indirect light. Native Indians who lived in areas where the monstera grew, acquired a taste for ripe Monstera fruit, which many people now find delicious. This low maintenance plant can be grown by both beginners and collectors who are keen to expand their stock of unusual aroids.
Adopting and Caring
: Adding a lush, healthy Monstera 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. Adopting
: Exposure to strong, direct sun will scorch the leaves of a Monstera. So 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. Locating
: Monstera needs rich, well-drained soil that has been fortified with organic material. So it is ideal 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 to do well. Potting
: Monstera like regular watering, especially if they are growing in pots. Even though it can’t stand waterlogged conditions, a good, well-draining potting mixture is ideal to keep your plant happy. Watering
: The beauty of a Monstera lies in its 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 with an organic fertiliser. Ensure you dilute the liquid at half strength as mentioned on the label. Fertilising Monstera is 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.
