Variegated Monstera care guide

Light Requirements:

Variegated Monstera ‘s absolutely love bright light and well lit rooms. They can tolerate a bit of sun, but only after they have been acclimated to handle sun. My suggestion – no sun on these guys!

Watering needs:

Try and water these guys at least once a week, you can allow the soil to dry out ever so slightly on the top few cm’s before watering again.
Its they are in warmer room you find that they may dry out a lot quicker.

Do not over water!

Humidity requirements:

They can tolerate normal humidity in the house, but they do prefer a little extra humidity, so they will appreciate a misting whenever you have a chance.

Fertilizing:

As with all plants, fertilizing is very important. These guys will enjoy being fertlized at least every two weeks with a general liquid fertlizer, like Grobest .

Soil:

In time you will find that your Monster plant will start outgrowing it’s pot and you will need to upsize the pot and give him a fresh mix. They require a well draining soil mixture that has good moisture retention.

Try our premixed Aroid mix which has the perfect balance of good drainage and moisture retention.
Try and only use a premium potting mix such as the Gromor Potting Soil and it’s always good practice to add in Perlite that will assist with good drainage, plus peat moss and coir husks that will hold in some moisture.

It’s advisable to allow this plant to grow in the mix that it’s currently in for at least anther 6 months.

Nice to know:

Monster plants are mildly toxic to animals and small children.
