Monstera Deliciosa

also known as the Swiss cheese plant, is a popular tropical plant that belongs to the Araceae family.

The plant produces a white, fragrant flower and edible fruit in its native habitat.

 

Care Instructions:

  • Monstera Deliciosa prefers bright, indirect light but can also tolerate lower light conditions. Avoid direct sunlight as it can scorch the leaves.

 

  • The plant prefers well-draining soil and should be watered when the top inch of soil is dry to the touch. Avoid overwatering as it can lead to root rot.

 

  • Monstera Deliciosa is a fast-growing plant and benefits from regular fertilization during the growing season. You can use a balanced liquid fertilizer every two to four weeks.

 

  • The plant prefers moderate to high humidity levels, so consider misting the leaves regularly or placing a humidifier nearby.

 

  • Monstera Deliciosa is generally pest and disease-resistant but can occasionally be affected by spider mites, mealybugs, or scale insects.

 

Propagation:

  • Monstera Deliciosa can be propagated by stem cuttings or by air layering.
  • To propagate by stem cuttings, select a healthy stem and cut it just below a node. Place the cutting in a jar of water or in moist potting soil and roots should develop in a few weeks.
  • To propagate by air layering, select a healthy stem and make a small incision in the bark. Apply rooting hormone and wrap the area with moist sphagnum moss and plastic wrap. Roots should develop in a few weeks, and you can then cut the stem below the root ball and plant it in soil.
