Growing with Monstera

Large, lush leaves
Browns easily

My mistake was getting a large monstera—it really likes humidity and as such does best being put in a shower for 15 mins or so or out in the yard under a hose when watering. That’s all well and good for small pots, but it’s a real bitch hauling this beast around my house whenever he needs water! Otherwise lovely to look at and quite happy to grow lots of new leaves. Browns very easily if it gets too dry though, or if ambient humidity is too low.
