The Monkey Mask Monstera

LIGHTING FOR YOUR MONSTERA ADANSONII

Monkey likes bright indirect sunlight. In the wild he is a climber, starts on the forest floor and climbs towards light, he loves a bit of shade and sun. Afternoon direct light should be avoided as his leaves can burn. Create the jungle to make Monkey feel at home.

WATERING YOUR MONSTERA MONKEY MASK

In the summer from March to September, we recommend watering twice a week. Watering Wednesday and Soak Sunday. 

In the winter from October to February reduce watering to once a week or less. Houseplant watering guide

HUMIDITY FOR YOUR MONSTERA ADANSONII

Monkey likes humidity. To increase humidity you can use a Humidifier, place Monkey next to other houseplants or choose a room such as the Bathroom or Kitchen to place Monkey.

FERTILISER FOR YOUR MONSTERA ADANSONII

From March to August give Monkey some houseplant fertiliser every month when watering. However, with repotting every year, fertiliser isn't necessary.

REPOTTING YOUR MONSTERA ADANSONII

When the roots start to grow out of the bottom opening of the pot, it is time to put Monkey into a larger pot. For soil, we recommend a good house plant compost. You can always add to Monkey's moss pole as well as he gets taller.

  • Brown tips on leaves can be from too much direct sunlight, or low humidity.
