Monsteras are species of evergreen tropical vines/shrubs that are native to Central America. They are famous for their natural leaf-holes. This monstera will have holes in leaves after it matures. But for now it carries a silvery pattern on green leaves and dark green veins. Leave it as it is and it will trail, provide it with a moss pole and it will climb and in time it will develop bigger leaves.
- Bright indirect light with a few hours of morning sunlight as an option.
- This monstera will need more frequent watering than other monsteras. You have to find the sweet spot between too dry and dry-enough-to-water-but-not-overwater. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light conditions. And don't let it sit in water or soil to be soggy. Using a Sustee Moisture Meter stick helps to figure out how much moisture is in the soil so you don’t under or overwater.
- Monstera siltepecana prefers high humidity above 60%, but can grow in lower humidity levels.
- Will do great in temperatures between 16-35°C.
- To repot this plant, you will need around one pack of For My Plants potting mix for the most loved houseplants. If you are up for fancy stuff - add in sphagnum moss and more chunky pieces like bark and charcoal as the roots needs to get oxygen.
- Fertilise your monstera with balanced fertilizer diluted to half strength once a month in growing season.
- Toxic to pets.
