Water

You should water your Monstera when the top 2-3 inches of soil is dry. Water your plant until water flows from the bottom drainage hole and discard any excess water in the saucer. Monstera plants can do well in many environments but if you would like to give your plant an extra boost you can mist it once a week, preferably in the morning to allow the water to evaporate throughout the day.

   Common Problems Q&A

 Why are my leaves turning yellow?

Yellowing leaves is most commonly caused by over watering. Monstera plants like their soil to remain damp but not wet. You should water your plant when the top 2-3 inches of soil are dry. When watering your plant it is also important to discard any excess water in the saucer so your plant does not sit in water. 

Why are my leaves limp and droopy?

Droopy leaves are generally a sign under watering. Monsteras like their soil to remain consistently moist, so it is important to maintain a consistent watering schedule. You should water your Monstera when the top 2-3 inches of soil are dry. 

Why are my leaves brown and crispy?

If a Monstera is exposed to too much direct sunlight this can cause the foliage to burn. However too little light can result in yellowing leaves and slow growth. It is best to place monstera plants in low to bright indirect light.
