Monstera Thai constellation is a beautiful variegated plant, unlike M.albo borsigiana it owes its variegation to a mutation so these plants are cloned through tissue culture. Variegation tends to be more creamy in colour than the M.albo borsigiana, it is speckled and unpredictable - hence the name ‘Constellation’, the variegation is also stable (white parts won’t revert to green). Internodal spacing is generally a lot shorter in M.Thai Constellation, leaf size is much greater than M.albo borsigiana. You can expect this plant to grow fairly large.
Height: Approximately 40cm from base of pot.
Secrets to success
Light: Bright indirect light.
Watering: Water when potting mix is almost dry - root rot is common with this plant. I'd recommend potting into a terracotta pot as it will soak up excess
water and as that evaporates will aid humidity.
Air humidity: Higher humidity, 60% and above.
Fertilising: Feed every few waterings in spring and summer; dilute synthetic fertiliser to half the recommended amount.
Potting mix: It’s important to use a well-draining and airy mix. An Aroid mix with bark is ideal.
Use a sphagnum moss pole to support and train your Monstera.
This plant is toxic, keep out of reach of pets and children.
