Grows naturally as a vining understory plant in tropical forests of Central and South America. Fun fact: As an outdoor landscape plant, Monstera produces a delicious, edible fruit! The fruit must be completely ripe before consumed. If you happen upon a fruiting plant, do some research before consuming as unripe fruit contains toxins. A properly ripened fruit is said to taste like a mix of pineapple and banana!
WATER: Likes consistent, but not oversaturated soil. Add water when the top two inches of soil feel dry.
LIGHT: Medium to bright light levels. Does well in an office setting where it can receive 8 or more full hours of artificial light.
TEMPERATURE: Maintain between 65-90F. Below 60F will harm the plant.
FERTILIZER: Apply a balanced houseplant fertilizer at 1/2 strength no more than once per month during the warm growing months.
