Sun: Indirect

Monstera Adansonii thrives in bright, indirect sunlight. While it can tolerate some direct sunlight, it's best to avoid prolonged exposure to harsh afternoon sun, as this can scorch its delicate leaves.

Light: Medium - Bright

Provide your Monstera Adansonii with bright, indirect light for optimal growth. Place it near a window where it can receive filtered sunlight or use sheer curtains to diffuse direct sunlight. Avoid placing it in dimly lit areas, as this can slow down its growth and lead to leggy, unhealthy foliage.

Water: When mostly dry

Water your Monstera Adansonii thoroughly but allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so it's crucial to strike a balance. Typically, watering once a week during the growing season and less frequently in winter is sufficient. Ensure that the pot has proper drainage to prevent waterlogging.

Humidity: Medium

Monstera Adansonii appreciates high humidity levels, similar to its tropical habitat. To increase humidity, mist the leaves regularly with water or place a humidifier nearby. Alternatively, group it with other plants to create a microclimate with higher humidity. Avoid placing it in drafty areas or near heating vents, as this can dry out the air and stress the plant.

Pet Friendly: Caution

Monstera Adansonii is generally considered pet-friendly, as it's not toxic to cats or dogs. However, it's essential to prevent pets from nibbling on its leaves, as ingesting large quantities can still cause digestive discomfort. Monitor your pets' interactions with the plant and consider placing it out of reach if necessary.

Pro Tip

To encourage balanced growth and prevent your Monstera Adansonii from leaning towards the light source, rotate the plant periodically. Rotating it every few weeks ensures that all sides receive equal exposure to sunlight, promoting symmetrical growth and lush foliage.

Your Complete Guide to Pot Sizes: What Size Should You Choose?

When selecting a pot for your plant, it's important to find the right size. But with all the different options out there, how do you know which one is best? We're here to help!

MyGreenscape's pot sizes chart is a great resource for finding your perfect fit. Our easy-to-read chart takes out all the guesswork and helps you quickly choose the right size for your plant.

Smaller pots are best for seedlings or small plants just starting out. These tend to be shallow but wide, allowing enough room for the roots of the young plant but not too much where they get overcrowded. Medium-sized pots are ideal when your plant has grown from its infancy and is ready for more space. These are deeper and wider than small pots, so that it can accommodate larger root systems - making sure your plant gets enough nourishment while still giving it breathing room. Large pots are top choice if you have an established plant in need of lots of space - think trees and large shrubs! The spacious depth and width allow plenty of room for deep root systems without struggling for air or light.

No matter what size you choose, MyGreenscape has got you covered, with our pot sizes chart guaranteeing you find the perfect fit every time!
