About Monstera deliciosa

Monstera features big (2-foot-wide) leaves that look like they have holes or cuts in them, giving rise to two of its other common names: Swiss cheese plant and split-leaf philodendron. While young, this houseplant has a dense, bushy shape, but as it grows, it wants to vine out.

Monstera can be kept bushy with regular pruning, or let it climb up a vertical support (such as fishing line fastened into the ceiling), for a decidedly bold and tropical look.

    How to repot Monstera plant?

    Choose the best time. Early spring is the best time to repot. Your monstera will probably hit a growth spurt during this time, so it should recover from repotting quickly. Pick your new pot. Start by selecting a pot that’s only slightly larger in diameter than your old one, but several inches deeper. You want it deep enough to accommodate a sturdy moss pole, whether your plant already has one or if you plant to add one in the future. To remove your monstera from the pot, turn the pot over and gently coax the plant out. If it doesn’t want to budge, try jiggling the pot a little, but don’t pull on the plant. Whatever you do, don’t try pulling it straight out of the pot! That’s a good way to break roots, stems, and leaves. If your monstera is very large, you might want to recruit a friend (or even two) to help you. For large plants, it works best if one person holds the pot while the other supports the roots as they come out. If necessary, a third person can support the top part of the plant during the procedure. water until water comes out into the drainage holes.

    Can Monstera go outside?

    Yes Monstera can grow outside where indirect bright light is available.
