Plant Description

Monstera deliciosa is a unique indoor plant that has an architectural appearance and amazing leaves that you won’t find with most other indoor plants. This interesting greenery grows nice and tall and it can immediately fill any space in the room as needed. Not only that, but this plant is incredibly easy to grow and handle, meaning that anyone can easily keep this plant alive without much trouble.

Some of the defining characteristics of monstera deliciosa are:

  • Unique, beautiful leaves that grow large and have a wonderful design
  • Easy to grow and care for, even if you’re a novice
  • Quickly grows and climbs, so make sure it has enough room
  • Works well in any space and adds beauty wherever you put it

The very first thing everyone notices about monstera deliciosa is how the leaves look. You’ll find the leaves grow very large and have a cut-out appearance with attractive holes here and there throughout the leaf. Each one is different, giving you a special design that won’t be replicated. The majority of these plants have a dozen or less leaves, but with their size and beauty, that’s the perfect amount. In fact, a mature plant will often feature leaves around 90cm long and 75cm wide, which is huge.

You might be wondering why these plants have these leaves, and there is actually a reason for it. It’s believed that this design allows the leaves to better withstand strong winds and heavy rainfalls. That might seem weird for an indoor environment, but it makes a lot of sense in their native habitat: the tropical forests in Southern Mexico.

Despite their huge size, monstera deliciosa are famous for growing quickly and adapting to nearly any growing conditions. They work well with little water or light, but they do best if you give them enough resources. This will ensure their best growth while also keeping them as healthy as possible. Don’t worry, even inexperienced owners can easily keep these plants alive.

Monstera deliciosa does best with medium to bright light from an indirect source, like a lamp or just being near an open window. You don’t have to do too much, just make sure they get some light so that they can properly get nutrients. When it comes to water, they need a moderate amount that differs slightly throughout the year. During the summer, keep the soil fairly moist and don’t let it dry out. During the winter and colder months, allow the soil to dry before watering it again. That’s it, anyone can follow these rules with ease.

These plants are climbers and will need adequate space to flourish and grow. You’ll find that they tend to have aerial roots that poke out from the soil. This makes it easier for them to collect water and light while also stabilizing them. However, you can easily tuck them under the soil without any harm as long as you are careful.

If you want a dramatic plant that easily fills the room with grace and beauty, or if you just want a large plant that is easy to care for that still looks amazing, then monstera deliciosa is right for you. You’ll absolutely adore how it looks, and it adds so much to the room.
