Monstera love

Ubiquitous they may be, but that doesn’t stop them being fabulous; Monstera deliciosa have shed their dusty, corner-of-the-room triffid image and are now elevated to superstar status. Basically, if you haven’t got one, then who actually ARE you?

Here’s a little vid that I did with the RHS explaining how to care for them, and if you’re thinking of getting one, I would urge you to go for something small and let it grow, rather than haemorrhaging money on a great big beast. Buying a small plant means that if you DO make a mistake and lose it, all is not lost, and if you don’t then it will actually grow better, because it has been acclimatised to your space from babyhood.

Let me know if you think I’ve missed anything out here - care tips that work for you.
