Monstera deliciosa is the Beyoncé of indoor plants? This beauty may hail from the sultry rainforests of southern Mexico to Panama, but it absolutely thrives in the cozy confines of your humble abode. With a taste for warmth and humidity, this plant is the perfect BFF for your indoor existence.
Does Monstera deliciosa need a lot of sunlight?
The Monstera tolerates low light, but grows faster and becomes more dramatic in a spot with indirect bright light. Avoid strong, direct sunlight because it will burn the leaves. If you don't have a location with ideal lighting for your Monstera, try a grow light.
Is Monstera deliciosa high maintenance?
Monstera is a big houseplant and grows fast in the right spot. We love it because it's low maintenance, a real feature plant and you just gotta have at least one in your green bunch.
How often should you water a Monstera?
Here's the tea: water it every 1-2 weeks, but only when the top-soil is dry to the touch (we're talking 1-2 inches down). And listen up, lighting plays a big role in this plant parenting game - brighter light means more water, lower light means less. Feeling fancy? Try bottom-up watering or self-watering pots to switch things up. Your plant will thank you for being a cool and trendy plant parent.
Should I put my Monstera in the bathroom?
Oh an excellent bathroom plant. Monsteras are happy in medium light and environments with around 40-50% humidity.
