Philodendron, Split Leaf (Monstera)

Also known as the ‘Swiss Cheese’ plant. The aerial roots grow downward out of the thick stem and take root where they touch the ground.

Light

To keep your plant from stretching, place it in bright filtered or indirect light. They can survive in very low light situations but they won‘t keep a compact growth habit. It is advised to provide a support for the plant to climb up.

Water

Allow the soil of large plants to dry down 2″ or more below the top of the soil level between waterings. Smaller plants should dry down about 1″ before watering.

Fertilizer

For optimum plant health, fertilize with an all-purpose houseplant food April through October, following label directions. For all other months, fertilize half as often.
