PHILODENDRON MONSTERA SPLIT-LEAF
ABOUT PHILODENDRON MONSTERA “SPLIT-LEAF”
Philodendron Monstera “Split-Leaf” is one variety of the group of plants commonly known as “Monstera”. Like its relatives, Split-Leaf has wide, glossy leaves in a heart shape that develop unique splits and holes as they grow. This variety is distinguished by the way the holes in its leaves reach to the edge of the leaf, and often entirely separate the leaf into flaps.
The 4” pot has a combined height of 12”.
As a tropical plant, the Split-Leaf Monstera likes bright light but too much direct sunlight can be harmful. It also prefers high humidity and will do better with filtered water or water that has been left out overnight.
Common pests can be dealt with using neem oil and regular wiping down, and the temperature should not go below 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
Taking care of a plant can be beneficial for your mental health, and the large leaves of Split-Leaf Monstera are especially good at producing oxygen. Misting its leaves to keep it happy will increase the room’s humidity, helping reduce dry skin problems!
LOOKING AFTER THE PLANT
Water the Split-Leaf Monstera when the top two inches have dried out, and don’t water so often that the soil stays soaked for long periods. Mist the leaves in the morning if your home has dry air to replicate the tropical atmosphere.
PLANT CARE WITH PETS AND CHILDREN
Split-Leaf Monstera can cause digestive upset and will irritate the mouth if ingested. Keep it away from curious pets and children.
