In-Depth Care Guide

Monstera dubia is a very beautiful plant coming from tropical forests of Central and South America. In their natural habitat, they grow on trees expanding all the way to the top of the canopy. Once they're exposed to direct sunlight, the leaves become heavily fenestrated! In an appropriate and controlled setting in your home and if the plant is mature enough, it can undergo this type of massive transformation. Here's more detailed information about how to take care of this beauty:

Water

Make sure that the roots never dry out. However, do not let any water accumulate, leading to plant suffocation and death.

Overwatering the plant may cause stress and infections. It goes the same way around: a very dry plant will grow orange/yellow leaves and lose its structural strength.

Pro tip: it is sometimes recommended to water the plant with low-chlorine and lukewarm water. Always check on the soil: don't water on a fixed time interval.

Light

Your Monstera dubia will thrive under bright, indirect light.

Direct sunlight is not recommended as this plant is known as a shade-loving plant. However, bright filtered light will bring out the colors in the leaves.

Soil

We recommend using a mix of 50% perlite and 50% regular potting soil. A good soil for Monstera dubia is a well draining soil dense in organic nutrients and quite porous so that the excess water drains easily. You can even add a bit of sand to improve the drainage.

Fertilizer

Monstera dubia does not need any additional specific nutrients. Your good old regular liquid house plant fertilizer is totally enough to provide all it needs.

Follow your fertilizer's recommendations.

Humidity

Monstera dubia will thrive with humidity levels over 60%.

However, since your apartment or house is probably not that humid, make sure to maintain the roots and the medium moist at all times.

If your house or the immediate surroundings around the plant is quite dry, you might need to use humidifiers or pebble trays. You can also mist indirectly only in the mornings so that leaves have time to dry out during the day.
