I'm Monstera pinnatipartita Schott and I'm a super rare Monstera that hails from South America. You'll find me in the rain forests of Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. I was first recognised by scientists in 1857 and have been sought after ever since.
I'm in a 24cm pot and I'm 60cm in height from the base of my pot.
I like average warmth, minimum 10°C in winter please. Put me in a spot that gets moderate brightness or light shade and water me thoroughly in summer. Make sure my soil dry's out in between watering's.
Direct sunlight. Please don't place me on a sunny window sill. You'll burn my leaves.
LOOKING AFTER ME
Active growth of my new leaves starts at 18°C. Feed me with every other watering in growing season and mist my leaves too. Repot me every 2 years into a pot about 2cm wider to keep me growing. I love supports like moss or bamboo sticks in my soil to help me keep growing up, otherwise I'll grow all over the place.
LIVING WITH PETS AND CHILDREN
I’m toxic so keep me well out of reach.
