Caring for your Monstera Adansonii


Strive to regularly water your plant, making sure that the soil is moist, yet not drowning. Or when about 75% of the soil is dry. Generally water about once a week in indoor houseplant conditions.


Your Monstera Adansonii thrives in bright indirect light. While it can tolerate lower light levels, its growth may slow. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight for extended periods to prevent leaf burn. If you don't have an ideal lighting spot, consider using a grow light to provide adequate light for your Monstera Adansonii.


Adansonii plants flourish in soil that strikes a balance between drainage and moisture retention. If the soil is too loose and airy, it will dry out quickly and struggle to retain vital nutrients. Opt for a loose, nutrient-rich, and well-draining soil for this Monstera plant. An Aroid mix containing charcoal, perlite, peat moss, and orchid bark is an excellent choice for optimal growth.

Temperature & Humidity

Normal room temperatures ranging from 60 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit are ideal for your Monstera Adansonii. It cannot tolerate temperatures below 55 degrees or sudden fluctuations in temperature.

Monstera Adansonii plants prefer moderate to high humidity levels to thrive, ideally between 60% to 80%. To increase humidity around your Monstera Adansonii plant, you can use methods such as misting its leaves, placing it near a humidifier, or grouping it with other plants to create a microclimate. Additionally, ensure the plant is watered properly and avoid placing it near drafts or vents, as these can decrease humidity levels.


Fertlize your plant from spring to summer once a month, then stop from fall to winter.


Your Monstera Adansonii is moderately toxic to pets and humans if ingested and can cause swelling, vomiting, or burning.
