Plant Features

The Split Leaf Monstera, also known as Monstera deliciosa, is a popular and striking houseplant, widely recognized for its large, glossy, green leaves with natural holes and deep cuts, giving it a distinctive, tropical look. This plant is a climber in its natural habitat and can grow quite large, making it a statement piece in any indoor space. It's favored not only for its unique appearance but also for its low-maintenance care requirements.

For troubleshooting, yellowing leaves is often a sign of overwatering. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering again. Brown leaf edges could be caused by low humidity or under-watering. Increase humidity around the plant and maintain a consistent watering schedule. Insufficient light can prevent the leaves from developing their characteristic splits and holes. Place the plant in a location with bright, indirect light. Watch out for pests like spider mites and mealybugs. Treat with neem oil or insecticidal soap if necessary.
