The Monstera deliciosa or Split Leaf Philodendron as it is sometimes called, is actually not a true Philodendron. It has heart-shaped leaves that split as they mature forming interesting leaf patterns.
LIGHT: Medium to bright, indirect light or some direct morning sun. Monsteras can survive in lower light, but the leaves won't split and the plant may become leggy. Avoid afternoon direct sun as it may burn the leaves.
WATER: Water thoroughly so that water drains out the bottom of the pot, then allow the top 30% of soil to dry before watering again. Make sure the potting medium is fast-draining to prevent root rot. Do not overwater. Signs of overwatering might include water droplets or yellowing edges on the leaves. Signs of under-watering include brown leaf edges. Adding humidity to the environment is beneficial to increase leaf growth.
TEMPERATURE: 60-80 degrees F. It generally does not do well in temperatures below 50 degrees.
FERTILIZER: 1x/month during it's active growing season (spring through fall)
ORIGIN: Native to jungles of Mexico, Panama, India
NOTES: These plants are toxic and should be kept away from pets and children.
