Monkey Mask Monstera | Monstera adansonii

You might be more familiar with a close relative of mine: the Swiss Cheese Plant (Monstera deliciosa), I'm a little bit rarer and have been name 'monkey mask,' as some think my leaves look like monkeys' faces.

Useful to know:

Origin

Mexico and Central America.

Height/Growth

You can leave me traling down or support me with a moss pole. My vines can get to lengths of up to 2m!

Light

I prefer bright, indirect light but I will tolerate light shade. No direct sunlight, please.

Water

Wait for my sol to dry out before giving me a drink.

Temperature

I like warm conditions from 18-27°C. Anything lower and I'll grow really slowly.

Feeding

Once a month over the growing season, feed me with a balanced fertiliser.

Grooming

Wipe my leaves gently to remove accumulated dust so that I can breathe properly.

Care

If I'm getting too wild, you could train me to climb bamboo or a moss pole.

Toxicity

Keep away from pets and children.

Fact

I am often mislabelled as the Monstera Obliqua, which is a very rare cousin of mine only seen in the wild a mere 17 times!. Click here to buy Monkey Mask Monstera
