Lighting for your Variegated Monstera
A bright spot is perfect, the white patches on the Monstera do not photosynthesise which means a Variegated Monstera has to work twice as hard for the sugar! Having said that, too much direct midday light can cause burning.
Watering your Variegated Monstera
Try using rainwater or distilled to avoid brown spots on the leaves. This Monstera can be pretty sensitive. Water and humidity are two things that will go down a treat. But, this doesn't mean drowning your plant every few days. Allow the plant to dry out a little bit between watering.
Humidity for your Variegated Monstera
A humid environment is important for a Variegated Monstera. Regular misting or a humidifier will be appreciated by this beautiful beast.
Fertiliser for your Variegated Monstera
Once a month in the spring and summer will be great. Remember to not fertilise too much, this can cause build up in the leafs.
