Plant Care Guide: Monstera Deliciosa

Fruit Salad Plant // Monstera Deliciosa

The Monstera Deliciosa is a bit of a trend setter. Famed for their unusual leaves, this beauty will turn any space into a tropical oasis. They're a lover of bright, indirect light and enjoy some humidity - so a quick mist wouldn't go amiss! 

Comes in a nursery pot. Cover pot not included.

Love notes

Keep your plant pal nourished and supported with a good quality plant food like We The Wild Grow Concentrate and We The Wild Support Pellets. These powerful plant essentials will keep your plants happy, strong and resilient, and will reward you with new growth a'plenty! 
These beauties thrive in humid conditions, so you can give them a mist every so often, and don't forget to wipe down those leaves when they're looking a little dusty. You can also spray with We The Wild Protect Spray every couple of weeks to keep leaves looking lush and healthy. 
Follow the recommended advise on watering above - if unsure, a Moisture Meter could be your secret weapon! This handy tool will show you exactly how dry your soil is to avoid any over or under watering fails. 
To ensure your new bestie gets enough drainage, we recommend keeping them in a nursery pot and displaying in a cover pot. If you do want to pot up your plant, make sure your decorative pot has a drainage hole and you've removed the plug. 
In their natural habitat, Monstera climb trees in the rainforest, so as they grow taller, help them feel at home with a totem and guide their aerial roots back down to the soil.
The slits in their leaves are known as fenestrations, designed to allow light to get down to their lower leaves. If your Monstera's leaves are lacking in fenestrations, it may be a sign she's not getting enough light. Monstera can also  be a little sensitive to overwatering, so be sure to allow the top few cm to dry out each time you water.
