Frequently asked questions

Why is my Monstera plant not producing split leaves anymore?
More light. In too low a light, the new growth will be weak and not split. Monsteras love very high light, and in Florida and SoCal, you’ll see some outdoors in nearly full sun and growing the best and strongest, thick short stems and huge leaves with dozens and dozens of splits and holes. They will even flower with a weird flower that gives rise to a tasty fruit, once it is ripe. Sort of between a pineapple and a banana in flavor.
