Description

WHEN YOU HEAR THE NAME “MONSTERA,” YOU KNOW IT’S GOING TO BE BIG

The Monstera Deliciosa or Split Leaf Philodendrum has been a favorite house plant for years – and with good reason. It’s wonderfully easy going, and freshens up any indoor corner. But, think ahead. The Monstera needs space – indoors or out, and it loves to climb.

Many refer to the Monstera as the “Swiss Cheese” plant, due to its leaves’ large cut ribbons or holes.  Interestingly, it’s believed leaves with large holes are more resistance to downpours or extreme weather, like hurricanes. In addition, light levels that reach down onto the floor of a tropical rainforest (its native habitat) are quite low. Leaves with ribbons have a larger surface area to better capture what little light filters down.

You usually won’t see any flowers when you keep the Monstera indoors, but if taken outdoors, it produces a beautiful flower that actually turns into a fruit. The fruits are edible and reminiscent in taste to pineapple-banana. The leaves of the plant, however, are toxic, if ingested.

Ideal for warmer and stable temperatures, the Monstera does not require a lot of water and prefers indirect light. Too much sun can scorch the plant, and cause lack of perforations in the leaves. Well-draining soil is important, too.  Indoors, a damp cloth or even a little dish soap and water can be used to keep the leaves clean.

* Please note that our younger medium monsteras may only have leaves that are completely solid and have no slits or holes. As your plant baby grows the older and newer leaves will start to split and display fenestrations (holes) on the leaves. Large and Extra Large plants will display splitting in leaves.

    I already have this plant and it is beautiful. I need to give Customer Service a 10. My plants did not arrive on time. Gave the shipper another day I know how it is with shipments they have a lot to do. I tracked again and it was still in the same state with no shipment date. I called Plant Vine Customer service and they were on it fast within 24 hours I was notified why the shipment did not arrive. Customer service in return got me another shipment out. The manager in shipping do not allowed their plants to be held up they guaranteed 2 days and that is it. This company impress me so much not only is their plants beautiful but customer service is excellent. We should not only rate the plant but the people who grow and ship our plants on time and keep up with the shipment. Again I rate Plant Vine customer service a “10”!!!!!!!

  29. Jim Nulty (verified owner)

    My “Monstera Deliciosa” arrived in great shape and is healthy and thriving! I’m anxious to repot in larger container. It appears to be a fast grower ! Many thx. I’ll be placing more orders as you have proved your quality and professional approach to plant sales. In other words…. I trust you !

  30. Nicole (verified owner)

    I did not receive a photo of my plant before shipping as I expected to (per the shipping email I received). However the plant was in relatively good condition when it arrived. 2 leaves had to be pruned due to damage, but there are 2 new leaves growing, so it works out! LOVE the addition of the bamboo stalk so I can tie the big leaves up also 🌱💕 Thanks PlantVine!

I am a first time plant owner. Can I just place the black grower pot into a regular planter? Or do I need to replant it and need soil etc.?

Support

Hi! Yes, it is up to preference! Some customers like to simply just put the plastic nursery pot in a decorative pot and take out when it is time to water or you can just repot it. It is up to you! The most important thing is to ensure that repot into a pot that has proper drainage!

I recently had to cut alot of the leaves and stems because I accidently overwatered it. What do you recommend I do? How long will they take to grow back? I have it on the floor near a window with the blinds half way open is that good enough light?
