Monstera siltepecana has absolutely stunning deep blue-green foliage that has a silvery sheen to it.
It loves to climb but can also be used as a trailing plant. Personally I find that it grows bigger and better with a support like a totem pole.
Wait until the top 2-3cms of potting mix in the soil are dry before watering and never let it sit in water as this this can cause root rot. Check it regularly as it likes to be kept on the moist side.
It will thrive in a spot with bright, indirect light although it can also handle a little bit of direct morning sun. It will also benefit from regular mistings as it loves humidity.
Repot in spring - remember to only go up one pot size. If you choose too big a pot, then the excess potting mix retains moisture and can lead to fungal problems and root rot. Use a high quality potting mix with excellent drainage.
After potting, pat the potting mix down to remove any air pockets and water in well using a weak seaweed solution. This will help it settle in quickly and happily.
Pictured here in a 14cm pot, this is the plant size you will receive.
