Plant Care Tips:

Light: Monstera Albo requires bright, indirect light. Variegated plants need more light than their non-variegated counterparts because they have less chlorophyll to perform photosynthesis. Avoid direct sunlight as it can scorch the leaves.

Water: Water when the top inch of soil is dry. Overwatering can lead to root rot. However, ensure the moss pole is kept moist, especially if the plant has aerial roots attached to it.

Humidity: This plant appreciates high humidity levels, ideally above 60%. You can increase humidity by misting the plant, using a humidifier, or placing a tray with water near the plant.

Temperature: It prefers warm temperatures between 65-85°F (18-27°C). Avoid sudden temperature changes and drafts.

Soil: A well-draining soil is vital to prevent waterlogging and root rot. A good mix can include peat moss, perlite, and orchid bark.

Fertiliser: During the growing season (spring and summer), feed every 2-4 weeks with a balanced liquid houseplant fertilizer. Variegated plants generally require less fertilizer than their green counterparts because they grow more slowly.

Support: As Monstera Albo is a climbing plant in its natural environment, a moss pole or other support will help it grow upright. Secure the stems to the pole as needed.

Pruning: Prune to control the plant’s size, to promote bushiness, or to remove any yellow or brown leaves. Always sterilize your tools to avoid spreading diseases.

Repotting: Repot every 2-3 years, or when it becomes root-bound. When you repot, it can be a good time to check the roots for health and upgrade the size of your moss pole if needed.

Propagation: Monstera Albo can be propagated from stem cuttings with at least one node. Place the cutting in water or moist soil until roots develop. Remember, variegation cannot be guaranteed in propagated plants, as it may vary from cutting to cutting.

Toxicity: Like most Monsteras, the Albo variety is toxic if ingested, so keep it out of reach of pets and children.
