Description for Monstera Obliqua

Plant height: 6 - 11 inches (15 - 28 cm)
Plant spread: 4 - 6 inches (10 - 16 cm)

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.

Common name(s): Hurricane, Swiss cheese plant, Split-leaf Philodendron
Flower colours: Whitish-green spadix and white spathe
Bloom time: Rarely flowers indoors
Max reachable height: 9-20 inches
Difficulty to grow: Easy to grow

Planting and care

Initial care for 1-2 weeks after receiving plant at your location:

  • Do not overwater suddenly, check the moisture in the soil first. If too dry then apply water gradually.
  • Keep the plant in indirect bright light. Gradually move it to more bright location.
  • Do not re-pot immediately after receiving it.

  • Key requirements to keep plant healthy:

    Sunlight: Full Sun
    Soil: Well-drained soil
    Water: Moderately
    Temperature: 20–30 degree C
    Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

    Caring for Monstera Obliqua

      Sunlight
    • Keep the plant indoor or outdoor with bright light.
    • Protect the Monstera plant from harsh direct sunlight as it can cause damage to the foliage.

    • Soil
    • The soil should be well drained and fertile for growing Monstera plant.

    • Watering
    • Water the plant when the topsoil (2-3 inch) in pot feels dry to touch.
    • Do not ever overwater the plant.
    • Water thoroughly in the summer and reduce watering in winter and rainy season.

    • Application of Fertilize
    • During the main growing season (April - August) feed the Monstera plant with organic fertilizer once a month.
    • Loosen the topsoil without disturbing the roots of the plant so it can uptake the nutrients and moisture easily.

    • Re-potting
    • When a plant outgrows in current pot, re-pot with fresh potting soil and some fertilizer.
    • Do the re-potting late evening and keep the plant in shady area for 2 to 3 days and then move the plant in its suitable climatic condition.

    • Plant Protection
    • Large leaves can collect dust. If you notice the leaves are dirty or dusty, wipe the leaves with a damp cloth and gently dry to keep them clean and healthy.
    • Remove dead, infected or damaged plant parts and discard them away from the plants.
    • For any insect attack or disease, you can use Neem oil, Eucalyptus oil or Citrus oil spray for primary treatment.
