Monstera is a very popular and easy to grow houseplant. Even a Novice Gardener will enjoy success growing this plant.
Monstera is perfect for gift giving or to keep for your Plant Collection.
Please plant your Monstera seedling on arrival in a container of good potting soil. SHADE ONLY IS BEST FOR THIS PLANT PLEASE. 75-85 degrees at all times. Keep watered evenly. Direct sun is not needed. This plant will grow large leaves and try to fall over, plan on providing some sort of support/a stake to hold up your developing plant.
Monstera makes a wonderful Houseplant/Container grown plant but is considered semi invasive in Hawaii.
Mature Monstera plants (grown outdoors in a warm climate) will eventually produce a corn cob looking fruit (shown in listing photos). The inside of this Monstera fruit is edible once ripe. If you are lucky you might find a seed or two hidden inside the fruit. The seeds are about the size of a pea and well hidden.
Monstera prefers to grow in the shade. Please read up on how to grow this plant in your particular area. Maui has a year round growing climate. We are unable to advise you on indoor growing in your area. This plant grows outdoors in Maui's year round climate. Please remember that Monstera is a tropical plant and 75-85 degrees is the ideal temperature.
