Monstera Deliciosa Care Tips
How to care for information:
- As a plant matures they lose their bottom foliage. This is completely normal and unavoidable. If the upper leaves are turning yellow, you may need to reassess your watering routine or move the plant away from direct sunlight.
- Allow the top 2 inches of the soil to dry before watering. Water thoroughly and remove excess water. Do not allow the soil to completely dry out.
- Prefers bright, indirect light. Can tolerate low to medium light. But the brighter the light, the happier the plant will be.
- Stem cuttings can be placed in moist soil or water until it forms roots that are about 2-3” long then transplant to moist soil. Take a cutting with a node (where the petiole meets the main stem) and at least 2-3 healthy leaves on it.
