Monstera deliciosa, also known as the “Swiss Cheese Plant” due the unique development of ridges and holes on its more mature leaves, is a species of flowering plant native to the southern Mexico and Panama.
The variegated Monstera has similar care to that of solid green monstera deliciosa. The main difference is the white portion of the variegated monstera leaves cannot absorb light, so it needs to work twice as hard to photosynthesize. Therefore low light conditions are not ideal, keep your variegated monstera in bright ambient light and it will be very happy. Choose a location away from air vents and drafts where the monstera can avoid dry air.
Monsteras appreciate a warm, humid environment; a good amount of water and gentle sunlight. If you’re unsure about your lighting conditions, placing the plant 5-10 feet from a well-lit window is the safest bet.
Water your plant when you first receive it, but it is important not to give too much or too little water. 1 liter is a good place to start.
Monsteras prefer soil that is consistently, if slightly, moist. As epiphytes with aerial roots, they are sensitive to overwatering. Typically, you shouldn’t have to water your monstera more than once a week. If the top 2 inches of the soil is dry, your plant could use a drink.
For general upkeep, dust the leaves often so the plant can photosynthesize properly. Using fertilizer spring through fall will enhance your plants foliage and promote new growth.
