How do you take care of a Monstera?

The best location

The Monstera is not such a troublesome houseplant. Where you gonna put her? It doesn’t matter. As long as it’s not in direct sunlight. Even in the shade, the Monstera is in place. Although, of course, she does need sunlight to grow. A spot with no direct sunlight or half shade is the best choice. The Monstera often grows a lot. The Monstera grows towards the sunlight. Don’t forget to turn her around. Because turning a plant is something that is often forgotten we have a good tip. Turn the Monstera every time you water her. Then the turning of the plant soon becomes a part of watering it.

Watering the Monstera

A sip of water once a week is sufficient. As long as the bottom of the Monstera is moist! The best way to check the humidity is to put your finger in the soil. Is the soil still wet after 6 days? Then you probably give too much water. It is best to skip the watering for a week. If the Monstera is continuously standing in wet feet she can suffer from root rot. It is also possible that you give too little water. Check this 2 days after you have watered. Is the soil already dry? Then you may water more next time. In the winter you can reduce your watering. It is best to water less, but keep doing this once a week.

Plant nutrition

From spring onwards it is important to feed the Monstera. You can do this by feeding the Monstera a little plant nutrition every week. In most cases you can just mix plant food with the water you would give anyway. Saves time and effort! As soon as autumn arrives you can stop feeding the Monstera. The extra feeding in this period can be harmful for the roots of the Monstera. She is currently receiving more nutrients than she can handle. And of course you want to prevent that! The dosage of the plant nutrition can be found in the leaflet.

Repotting

It is best to repot the Monstera every year. She has huge roots that need the space. It is therefore advisable to repot the plant immediately after purchasing it in a nice indoor pot. We recommend repotting your plant in the spring. We would also advise you to choose a flowerpot that is 20% larger. This will give the plant enough space to grow again. And that space is certainly necessary in spring and summer! A Monstera can grow up to three times as big in one year.

Air purifying function

With her beautiful heart-shaped hole leaf, the Monstera is a good air purifier. She opens her stomata during the day to convert CO2 to oxygen. She is also a real winner when it comes to cleaning up the air. Dirty smells or harmful substances? No problem for the Monstera! She makes them disappear in no time.

Is the Monstera poisonous?

Always consult a veterinarian as soon as pieces of leaf of the Monstera have been eaten. The Monstera is poisonous to cats. After eating the leaf the cat can get problems with the kidneys. After ingestion keep a close eye on other strange behavior of the cat.

Diseases and peculiarities

In general, the Monstera does not suffer much from diseases and vermin. The most common pest in a Monstera is the mealybug. This can be treated with pest control. However, it is wise to keep a close eye on the leaves of a Monstera.
