The most important facts about the Monstera
We address the Monstera, unlike other plants, by its botanical name, because this is also Monstera. However, it is also known by the names window leaf or Swiss cheese plant. Especially the second name alludes to the interesting leaf pattern of the plant. The Monstera has holes in its leaves.
Since the Monstera originated in tropical regions of Central and South America, its leaves form holes so that the lower leaves can also soak up valuable light and thus grow. In its natural environment, the tropics, the monstera can grow up to 20 meters high, where it proves to be more of a climbing plant.
The leaves of the Monstera can grow up to 90 cm long, depending on the genus, making it a real eye-catcher for your Urban Jungle.

Important information about Monstera care
Although the window leaf is known as a very low-maintenance houseplant, there are still a few things to keep in mind when caring for the monstera. We will therefore enlighten you:
How often should I water my monstera?
You should water your window leaf regularly. However, make sure that there is no waterlogging. The plant does not like this at all. It prefers dryness to wet feet in this case. When watering, you can also use stagnant water or rainwater.
What is the right location for my Monstera?
If you are wondering how much light my monstera needs, here is the answer! Your window leaf likes it bright, but does not need direct sunlight. Therefore, it does especially well in bright hallways or living rooms on the windowsill or a plant stand.
How often should I fertilize my Monstera?
Your fertilizing schedule will depend on the time of year you are in. From April to August is the growth period of the Monstera, so you can fertilize every 14 days. From September to March, we recommend that you only fertilize your monstera every 4 to 6 weeks.
What soil do I use for my Monstera?
We will tell you what soil to use when repotting your monstera. Your window leaf likes a humus-rich soil. However, you can generally use regular houseplant soil and add a peat mix here to give your plant the nutrients it needs. However, when repotting, make sure that the soil remains loose and is not pressed down too tightly.
Should I support my monstera?
If you have a large monstera, we recommend supporting it to prevent it from breaking off due to its weight. Use a moss stick or a bamboo stick and fix the stems of the monstera to your support.
Should I cut the roots of my Monstera?
You should not cut back the aerial roots of your monstera at all, this could be resented by your window foliage. However, if the roots bother you, we recommend that you redirect them into the soil. In this way, hanging aerial roots will easily become soil roots.
What is the best way to remove dust from my Monstera?
It is advisable to wipe your Monstera from time to time to remove dust and dirt. To do this, moisten a microfiber sheet with a little water and gently wipe the leaves of your Monstera with it. By the way, this also helps to keep pests away from your plant.
Monstera care mistakes: this is what you should avoid.
Even though the window leaf is generally considered very easy to care for, there are still care mistakes that should be avoided. We recommend that you do not overwater your monstera, because it does not like waterlogging. The tropical plant also does not like a location that is too cold. The plant reacts to both care errors with a discoloration of the leaves.
