Monsteras require a bright, well-lit space but can handle moderate light. Avoid prolonged periods in intense direct sunlight as this may harm the leaves.
These indoor plants tend to be relatively easy going when it comes to watering. While they prefer to be watered as the soil begins to dry out, they are tolerant of brief periods of drought.
You can maintain your Monstera’s growth by using a stake or tying the stalks up together. This will help train the plant in the direction you want. They can also be pruned back whenever required to create a form suitable for their space.
These plants are considered to be toxic if ingested so it is best to keep them out of reach of curious children and pets.
