LOVING YOUR PLANT
This Monstera prefers bright, indirect light or a shadier spot.
Water your plant when the first 2 inches of top soil feel dry.
This plant loves moisture. Mist it a few times a week - ideally with filtered, room temperature water as scale can create damage. A way of keeping the humidity high is to group several plants together or by sitting them on a tray of pebbles and water.
Make sure to clean all leaves with a dry cloth – dust can affect its absorption of light.
As your plant grows you might want to support it with a moss pole (this encourages the plant to grow upwards) or keep it as a hanging plant.
Toxic for pets and children if eaten.
