The most elegant and tidy form of Monstera adansonii. Let this plant trail from up high or train it up a support structure to watch the leaves get huge. This Narrow form of Monstera adansonii also suits households where curious paws or hands may be tempted to tussle with your vines. The narrow fenestrations (holes) in the leaves are a little less tempting to tear.
Ideal for Intermediate-experienced plant keepers or beyond.
Light Requirements: Medium light is ideal but thrives in bright indirect light.
Moisture & Soil Requirements: Prefers evenly moist soil with good drainage in warm seasons - never soggy soil. Reduce watering in cooler weather or darker positions.
Growth & Nutrients: Upright vine-type growth with aerial roots that seek out support. Grows up trees in wild, simulate this with a fern pole or similar. Suits apartments or homes of any size. Feed with a general-purpose fertiliser for containers from the start of spring each year to autumn when growth slows down.
Temperature, Humidity & Ambient requirements: Prefers warm, humid environments inside but adaptable to many conditions.
Toxicity: Toxic to pets and people. Don't chomp down on this ever.
