Please read: Next batch due 2022 at earliest, these are slow to propagate as they’re the Albo variegata variety which can only be multiplied by cuttings. Waitlists are unavailable but all new plants are released via our email alerts first as well as restocks mentioned on social media channels.
Coveted by thirsty plant aficionados the world over, these special variegated Monstera deliciosa specimens are a striking stand out investment piece for your interior space or secure sheltered courtyard in warmer parts of NZ.
Ideal for Intermediate plant keepers or beyond.
Light Requirements: Bright Indirect Light is essential to maintain the white variegation on the leaves but white sections are easily scorched by the harsh sun.
Moisture & Soil Requirements: Prefers evenly moist soil with good drainage in warm seasons - never soggy soil. Water when the first few centimetres of soil are dry. Prefers to be kept a little drier through winter.
Growth & Nutrients: Grows up trees in the wild by growing in vine-like growth with aerial roots. Ideally, grow your Monstera up a support pole to mimic a tree. Grows large but the growth tip segment can be cut and re-potted to suit your available space. Suits medium-large apartments or homes. Feed with a general-purpose fertiliser for containers from the start of spring each year to autumn when growth slows down and allow your plant to rest over winter.
Temperature, Humidity & Ambient requirements: Prefers warm, humid environments inside but can deal with most home environments.
Toxicity: Moderately toxic. Don't let anyone or anything eat it.
