Monstera Dubia - Common Issues and Questions
Why are the leaves of my Monstera Dubia yellow?
If your Monstera Dubia has yellow leaves, it may be a sign of overwatering. Be sure to only water your plant when the top 5cm of soil feels dry. Try dipping your finger into the soil. If it feels moist, leave it a few more days before watering.
My Monstera Dubia has wilting leaves. What am I doing wrong?
Wilting leaves are a sign of underwatering and lack of moisture. If your plant’s soil feels dry, it’s time to water it. This should happen every week or so. You can also try misting your plant regularly to keep it nice and hydrated.
Help! I think my Monstera Dubia has root rot!
Soggy, mushy roots and brown leaf spots can be a sign of root rot. This comes as a result of overwatering and an excess of moisture. If you can still spot healthy roots among the rotten ones, your plant still has a chance of surviving. Simply remove the bad roots with a pair of shears and repot your plant.
Common pests: The Monstera Dubia is most susceptible to red spider mites and scale. Be sure to tend to any pests as soon as you spot them as they can quickly destroy your plant.
