Hello, my name is Monty. I used to be called 'Montgomery', before I was told that I wasn't very relatable. I was very popular in 1980's houseplant craze because of my funky leaves. I was very much enjoying an early retirement until recently. But, then I became popular once again. So, I would just like to thank, what I believe to be called the 'Vegan Hipsters' for bringing me back into 2019. (Decorative pots sold separately)

Lighting for your Monstera Plant
Monty likes bright indirect sunlight. To add a bit of context 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.
Watering your Monstera Plant
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
Monty will droop and curl his leaves when he needs watering, especially in warmer weather.
Humidity for your Monstera Plant
Monty likes room humidity to be around 60%. Normal room humidity is around 40-50%. To increase humidity you can use a Humidifier, place Monty next to other houseplants or you can fill a saucer with pebbles and water, place Monty on top of this.
Fertiliser for your Monstera Plant
From March to August give Monty some houseplant fertiliser every month when watering.
Repotting your Monstera Plant
When the roots start to grow out of the bottom opening of the pot, it is time to put Monty into a larger pot. For soil, we recommend a good house plant compost with peat.
Monstera Plant Care Problems
Brown tips on leaves can be from too much direct sunlight, or low humidity.
Yellowing leaves from over or under watering.
